10/31 | Fall Treats

Fall is here and one of my favorite things to do this season is dive into the kitchen and try some new recipes. I love getting creative and trying new things and with all the amazing fall flavors what better way to bring in the season than cooking up some delicious Fall Treats? I love making food from every course, but my favorites are always the desserts, so that’s what we’ll be focusing on today. Most of these are easy to make and would be perfect for a party or get together, or just to make on a weeknight for your family. Check out these incredible fall recipe ideas!

Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats

Who doesn’t love a good homemade rice krispie treat? The only thing that could possibly make them better was if you gave them a flavorful fall spin, just like these! You could even take them to the next level and use a fall leaf cookie cutter to make them shaped like leaves, or add a candy corn pumpkin to garnish.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Bars

This fall themed oatmeal bar recipe is calling my name. I’m a big oatmeal fan and if you add cinnamon and pumpkin, how can you go wrong? these would be great to make ahead for an on the go fall breakfast or as an after-school snack for the kids.

Candy Corn Frosted Snickerdoodle Pie

Talk about the perfect fall party dessert recipe. Cookie pies are always easy, and always a big hit. This one goes over the top for fall with the oh so creative frosting work to make each slice look like a piece of candy corn. This is the perfect quick dessert to take to any party.

Butter Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

This is a snack for a serious girls’ night. It’s on the top of my list of fall recipes to try, and it looks amazing. This dip is also paired with pumpkin corn chips for a hint of fall flavor, and I’m a sucker for anything butter pecan. I’m sure this dish would be an instant crowd pleaser.

Pumpkin Spice Waffles With Apple Cider Syrup

This recipe isn’t for the faint of heart or the short on time. This is a Saturday morning recipe that will take time, but your taste buds will thank you for your patience and hard work. You have to make these at least one time every year, it’s like a right of passage when you’re entering into fall.

Harvest Caramel Corn

This is a kid approved, mom approved, party approved, everyone approved fall snack that packs a big sweet punch. Believe me when I say a little goes a long way, which is why it’s perfect for a party or group movie night! You can add more or less to it, of course, depending on your favorite sweets. Guests also love the idea of having a popcorn topping bar where they mix and match their own flavor combinations!

Pumpkin Spice Pretzels

This easy treat is always yummy and great for weeknights when you get a little sweet tooth. Just like normal chocolate covered pretzels, accept with a fall twist, these are a great alternative to the classic. I’ve also seen people place a green m&m in sideways on the top of these before the chocolate has hardened, and they look just like little pumpkins.

Cinnamon Apple Chips

With all dried fruit, you either love it or you hate it. These cinnamon apple chips are no different. I personally love the taste of an apple chip and when you add cinnamon it really gives it that spice that you’re looking for. They’re pretty easy to make, and maybe this way you could trick your kids into actually eating fruit.

Pumpkin Spice Monkey Bread With Cream Cheese Glaze

If you’re looking for a healthy fall breakfast recipe, move far away from this one. However, if you’re looking for one that’s full of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and cream cheese goodness then this is the one for you! Just a few bites of this filling breakfast dish and you’ll be satisfied. Who doesn’t love monkey bread?

Whipped Pumpkin Honey Butter

Where do I start with this recipe, you can put it on anything! Toast, bagels, biscuits, rolls,  pancakes, waffles, croissants, you name it. I could probably eat it by the spoon full, but that’s not very good for you. In my mind, there’s nothing better than this whipped pumpkin honey butter on a fresh out of the oven homemade roll.

Pumpkin Cupcakes

The perfect party treat that all guests know and love, with a pumpkin twist. Not only are they decorated beautifully, but they also taste like pumpkin, too. You’ll have to put some love in the presentation, but your guests will give the love right back when they take that first bite.

Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Crumble

There’s nothing easier than dumping everything in a slow cooker before work and coming home to a delicious treat waiting for you. This apple crumble is exactly what you need on a busy day when you know the family is coming and you’re short on time. Just let the slow cooker do the job and pick up some ice cream on your way home to top it off, and you’ve got dessert covered.

Caramel Apple Pie Cookies

If you’re ever craving the comfort of apple pie without all the prep and long cook time of a classic apple pie, try these adorable apple pie cookies. They’re a great time-saving alternative without sacrificing any taste! These would be a perfect party dessert.
