Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

These pumpkin cheesecake balls look amazing! Pumpkin puree, ginger snaps and cream cheese are just a few ingredients that make this dish so delicious. To finish this recipe off, the cheesecake balls are dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with graham crackers on top as a finishing touch. The hard, outer shell that breaks into a soft, flavorful pumpkin bite will keep you coming back for more. If you’re pumpkin flavor obsessed like me, you need to try this yummy pumpkin packed treat!¬†

Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Bites

These buttery pretzel bites make for a great late night movie snack! This is a pretty simple recipe, but with a fall twist! You’ll need biscuit dough, baking soda, water, butter, sugar and a little touch of pumpkin spice. Dunk these bites in a cup of melted yellow or white cheese dip for some cheesy gooey goodness. After all, pretzels and cheese make the perfect pair. Turn on a film, fill up a large bowl and share with others. Or eat them all yourself. We don’t judge.

Caramel Apple Crescents

This treat is great for heating up and heading out the door in the morning. It can be a quick go-to breakfast treat if you’re in a hurry. It only requires six ingredients: crescent dough, sliced apples, caramel candies, melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. The crunchy texture from the crescent makes for a nice flaky outer shell to hold the scrumptious dessert inside. Your taste buds are in for a treat when you bite down into the creamy caramel filling and warm cinnamon flavored apple. Add a scoop or two of cool vanilla ice cream on top and you’ve got the essence of fall rapped up in a warm crescent.

Chocolate Apple Pops

This apple pop recipe is so fun and creative! You could dip these delicious treats into your very own topping bar filled with ores, m&ms, sprinkles, whatever you like! This would be a fun treat to make at home with your kids. They’ll love being able to choose how they want to decorate their treat. You could also turn this into a Halloween treat but coating your apples with orange and black sprinkles, and icing on spiders, webs and ghosts. Red icing could be used for blood. The possibilities are endless!
