Pumpkin Inspired Graham Cracker & Peanut Butter Pops #Recipe

 


These graham cracker pops are adorable to present for the Fall season and are incredibly easy to make!  They are perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving or any Fall get together!


GRAHAM CRACKER & PEANUT BUTTER POPS



Ingredients:
  • 1-1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 to 12 standard-sized crackers)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (about half a cup)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1.5 cups orange candy melts
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Lollipop sticks
  • ¼ cup melted chocolate
  • Green icing
Yields: 15 to 20 1-inch pops

Instructions:
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese and peanut butter. Mix until you achieve a fairly sticky consistency. If you feel like your mixture is still too dry, continue adding peanut butter, one tablespoon at a time.
      
  2. Roll graham cracker mixture into one-inch balls and place on your lined baking sheet.
      
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave your candy melts for about 30 seconds. Stir in coconut oil and microwave for another 30 seconds.
        
  4. With the help of a fork, dip and coat your graham cracker balls in the melted candy. Let them set on your lined baking sheet.
       
  5. Place a lollipop stick into each graham cracker ball. With the help of another lollipop stick (or a toothpick), carefully dab on some melted chocolate at the end of the lollipop stick (the end that meets that graham cracker treat).
     
  6. Using a piping bag, pipe green icing on top, giving them a “swirly” shape – these will act as your pumpkins’ leaves.
  7. Place in the refrigerator until set (about 20 to 30 minutes). Enjoy!

    Monster Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies #Recipe #Halloween

                             


    Looking for a fun treat for Halloween? Why not try these Monster Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies. Not a fan of chocolate chips, substitute with peanut butter chip, butterscotch chips, etc.

    Ingredients
    • 2 cups whole wheat flour
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1/s tsp salt
    • 1 cup butter or margarine
    • 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1-1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • candy eyeballs
    • non-stick spray


    Directions

    1.   In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt.
    2.   In a separate bowl use an electric or stand mixer and cream the butter and sugar. Once creamed add eggs and beat until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and mix.

    3.   With the mixer on slow speed mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
     
    4.  Drop batter by heaping teaspoon onto a lightly sprayed cooking sheet (we used Pam). This cookie recipe spreads so make sure each cookie is 2 inches apart. Lightly press down cookies and place candy eyeballs on cookies.

    5.  Bake in a 350 F oven for 10 minutes.
    6.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.

But when a tech-savvy villain hacks into wireless networks to use frequencies only heard by cats and dogs, he manipulates them into conflict, and the worldwide battle between cats and dogs is BACK ON. Now, a team of inexperienced and untested agents will have to use their old-school animal instincts to restore order and peace between cats and dogs everywhere.

    Apple Picking Season = Apple Dump Cake #recipe

     We went apple picking today and picked a bunch of Cortland and Johnny Gold apples.  I saw a bunch of different dump cake recipes online and hubby immediately asked if I could make some type of apple cake tonight.  I of course obliged, who can resist the smell of apples baking in the oven?



    Ingredients:
    3 - Large apples sliced apples
    1 - Package yellow cake mix
    1 - Stick of butter
    1 - Tbsp. sugar/cinnamon mixture

    Spray a rectangular glass cooking dish with cooking Spray.  Layer apple slices (or other fruit) at the bottom of a pan that has been coated with non-stick spray.

    Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the sliced apples.





    Melt the stick of butter in the microwave on low heat in a microwave safe container.  Pour the melted butter over the cake.


    I then sprinkled the sugar/cinnamon mixture on the top and placed in the oven.


    Bake at 350 degrees  for approximately 45 minutes.  If you notice it still dry in areas while baking, it is okay to add a Tsp. or so of water to the areas that is still the dry cake mix.



    Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream!
