Even though fall has “officially” arrived on the calendar, the cooler weather hasn’t hit my neck of the woods yet, but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about fall foods. For me, it’s all about the sweets (no surprise, right?).
Visions of recipes made with apples, pears, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and more have been dancing around in my head lately. Apple bars, apple butter, apple cider, sweet potato casserole with brown sugar pecan topping, sweet potato pie, pumpkin bread, pear bread, caramel apples and the extra-large caramel apple pie from Costco are just some of the treats that come to mind. Oh my, I’m getting hungry just writing about these sweets!
Then there’s the candy that only comes out in the fall. Oh my goodness! Is there any better time of year for this? Take a look at my favorites.
White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s is at the top of my list since I’m a big-time white chocolate fanatic. I’m totally addicted to these. Believe me, I’d be doing the happy dance if these were available all year long…they could make them in pastel colors like they did at Easter and I’d probably keep them in business myself! The 3 bags I bought last weekend won’t be around very long…I’m sure I’ll be heading back to Wal-Mart or Target for before too long!
I got the Pumpkin Spice Kisses last year for the first time…yummm! If you haven’t tried these, I suggest you head right out and buy a bag before they’re all gone. You might just find a new recipe showing up here soon using these…stay tuned.
Caramel Candy Corn is by far my favorite candy corn with the Caramel Apple Candy Corn right behind. Mr. C. is really partial to the Caramel Candy Corn (he put 3 bags in the cart on our last Wal-Mart trip).
Have you seen the new Caramel Apple Milky Way Minis? Mmmm…quite a tasty treat!
