DIY Caramel Apple Station

DIY Caramel Apple Station

Thank you Mardi Gras Napkins for sponsoring this post. Learn more about Mardi Gras Conversation Starter Napkins here and grab your coupon today! Fall is one of my favorite seasons. Mainly because of all the the wonderful produce in season this time of year, and the tasty treats we bake (and eat) with them, of course! πŸ˜‰ Our apple trees were covered in fruit these past few weeks, and it has been a real treat, I tell ya! We've had apple pies, apple crumbles, apple compotes and even apple chips baked in the oven and covered in cinnamon. YUM!

Pumpkin & Cinnamon Tiramisu Recipe

Pumpkin & Cinnamon Tiramisu Recipe

Tiramisu is one of my all time favorite desserts. I come from an Italian background, so there's no surprise there ;) But because autumn rhymes with pumpkin and cinnamon errything , I decided to add a little twist to my classic recipe. I say classic, but really it's far from it, 'cause for my usual Tiramisu I use cinnamon cookies instead of the traditional ladyfingers. I adore cinnamon just a much as pumpkins. And coffee. So it was a no-brainer, really!

Toffee apples take me right back to childhood. I remember walking past the sweet stands selling them at carnivals and country fairs, and I always pestered my mom to buy them. I totally favored these over cotton candy every time! And autumn is the perfect time to make these delicious, crunchy toffee apples at home. Forget bobbing for apples, toffee apples is where it's at! ;) Oh, and did I mention it's super easy too? I love them even more now!
