I love Fall. The weather is crisp and energizing, the colors nourish the soul, and the food is fabulous! These recipes are perfect anytime from October through December, but you can enjoy them whenever you like.
|Caramel Pumpkin Pie Dip|
1. Caramel Pumpkin Pie Dip
What’s not to like about pumpkin pie dip swirled with caramel sauce? You can use regular graham crackers or chocolate graham crackers as dippers. I like her tip to use a sharp knife to press on the lines of the graham crackers to make the cleanest cuts. On the other hand, you could use any broken graham crackers for you to “test” the dip!

2. Pumpkin Pie Spice Cupcakes with Pumpkin Pie Centers
I love, love, love pumpkin pie, but these cupcakes look awesome. They have a “gooey, custardy center of pumpkin pie in an individual sized cake” according to the Baker Chick. Click here for this yummy recipe. Nice that you don’t have to cut and serve pie this way too.
|Soft Salted Caramel Popcorn|
3. Soft Salted Caramel Popcorn
I can see this would be hugely popular all Fall and Winter long. The caramel topping stays soft and yummy. With salted caramel being a hot trend in food these days, this is an easy way to try it. Click here for the recipe at Pretty Providence. The sauce is enough for 3 bags of microwave popcorn, but you can spread it out further if you like. Put on a holiday movie and sink into a cozy night at home.
4. Gourmet Candy Apples with Homemade Caramel
You don’t have to pay a small fortune for fancy candied apples. Have fun making your own show-stoppers. These look fantastic at a party and also make wonderful gifts. Click here for the tutorial at Our Best Bites. The recipe for caramel sauce can be used for all sorts of other things.
5. Hot Spiced Cider in the Crockpot
|Hot Spiced Cider in the Crockpot|
I love the idea of making this in the slow cooker. It makes the house smell sooooo good, people can help themselves whenever and it’s always the perfect temperature. Genius!
