Caramel Apples


  • 6 apples
  • 1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Remove the stem from each apple and press a craft stick into the top. Butter a baking sheet.
  2. Place caramels and milk in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave 2 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool briefly.
  3. Roll each apple quickly in caramel sauce until well coated. Place on prepared sheet to set.
After dipping in caramel, you can then use your imagination to decorate them!  You can use the leaf sprinkles as shown in this pic (which are available in our Etsy shop), or M&M's, Reeses Pieces, chopped peanuts, milk chocolate, chocolate chips, coconut, the possibilities are endless!

Ghostly cupcakes

I stumbled across this recipe for these adorable and easy to make Halloween ghost cupcakes over at Better Homes & Gardens

Marshmallow creme is the secret behind these ghosts.
To make it, follow these steps:
1.     Start with frosted store-bought or homemade cupcakes.
2.     Microwave 1 cup marshmallow creme (enough for 8 cupcakes) in a microwave-safe bowl on High for 20 seconds or until warm. Cool slightly. Place in a large heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; snip one corner and pipe a ghost shape onto each cupcake.
3.     Quickly attach chocolate chips or other small candies for ghost eyes and mouth before marshmallow creme sets.

Easy peasy!!
