If there’s one food that is symbolic of the season, it’s the candy apple.

Just one bite and all your dreams will come true.

STOP! Don’t eat that…

There’s no caramel or chocolate on that apple.

Start with some warm, buttery caramel.

October 16th: Eat “Dirt”

No, we’re not talking about actual dirt. We’re talking about Dirt Cups. And if you’re a parent, you’re probably more than familiar with them. Kids love the staple ingredients to this dessert- crushed Oreos and gummy worms.

October 14th: Enjoy a Fall dessert in honor of National Dessert Day

My jeans are yelling, “You’ve been eating Fall desserts every single day.”

But, the voices in my head are yelling something different.

Perhaps, just one little cookie….

Ms. Fields Yummy Mummy Cookie Cake

Or, just a small bite…

Vampire Teeth Cupcake

Or, one tiny slice of cake.

Halloween Chocolate Cake

And, if one little slice, leads to the whole cake, that’s okay. It’s a special time of year.

October 13th: Snuggle up with a chocolate mystery, eat 13 chocolates 

It’s the perfect time of year to snuggle up in a blanket with a good mystery…and eat chocolates. My personal recommendation, ahem, Thirteen Chocolates.

IMG_4585.JPG

The mystery is set up like a whodunit, with 13 suspects. This is where the chocolates come in. Every chapter a suspect is eliminated, and so is a chocolate. (Your cue to eat a chocolate!)

So grab some chocolates, grab a book, and eat your way through the mystery.

For the occasion, starting Oct. 13th, Thirteen Chocolates will be on sale for only 99 cents.

October 11th: Cure what ales you, Sample some chocolate beer

I admit, I’m not a huge beer fan. But, every once and a while, I have a taste for it. Which means my older brothers are in town, playing poker and drinking craft beers. Okay, they drink beer, and I sip some samples. Especially, when chocolate is on the label. Chocolate flavored beer. Game, changer.

Here are some variations of chocolate beer- so many flavors! Have you tried any? Let me know in the comment section below!

Wasatch Brewery: Black O’Lantern- Pumpkin Spices & Chocolate

Founder’s Brewery: Breakfast Stout- Double Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout

Flying Dog: The Fear- Pumpkin Spices with a hint of Chocolate

Left Hand Brewing Company: Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout- Black licorice, dark chocolate and coffee

Sonoran: White Chocolate Ale

Boulevard Brewing: Chocolate Ale with Raspberry

Not a fan of beer? Have a root beer! ( Don’t forget to add the chocolate).
