Fall – is – al – most – here. Ok, well not really but a girl can dream! This is the time of year I itch for. The falls smells, cooler weather, playoff baseball, COLLEGE football, and of course, fall baking!!! This is a very simple recipe for delightful little biscuits that taste like Skor bars. Yes, seriously.

In our family we call them Minnesota Cra*k and when you “bake” them you’ll see why! (Well, my family is in Minnesota so that explains that part!) The beauty in these, aside from their ridiculous taste, is that you make them ahead and store them in Ziplocks in youre freezer until your ready to serve them! Bam, semi-homemade goodness ready for kids or guests at any time!

Soooo, as you can see, these are not a healthful treat! Ha! What you’ll need:

Bakers spray
1 Cup (2 sticks) of butter*
1 Cup of brown sugar *
* I use organic really just to make myself feel better about the insanity of the ingredients in these puppies!
6 Hershey Bars
Two boxes of whole wheat crackers (I used to use a square-shaped wheat cracker that was discontinued by Nabisco so I now use these round ones by Carr)

Set your oven to 400. Next, cover two baking sheets in foil. {Tip: I use two sheets of foil so that I cover every inch of the baking sheet, sides and all.} Generously spray the foil-wrapped sheets with your non-stick baking spray. Then “line-em up, line-em up”. {If you guess what random rap song I’m singing I’ll bake you a batch of these babies!} Line both baking sheets with your crackers, litlle broken pieces and all!

Before we make the gooey goodness, break apart your chocolate bars and set the pieces aside (your going to use all 6 bars!)! Now for the goodness: Melt the two sticks of butter with brown sugar on your stovetop until it bubbles! Then, drizzle the goodness over the crackers and try to smear it over the entire cracker, sides and all.

Now for the chocolate!!! Put a Hershey bar on each cracker and spread over each cracker with a butter knife. Once you’ve done that, cover your baking sheet with another sheet of foil being careful not to let it stick to your chocolate!  Place the trays into your freezer and wait for them to set up!!

Once your ready, if you can even wait until they set, I dare you to eat just one!!!

The Perfect Egg Salad Sandwich

Egg salad sandwiches take me back to my childhood. As a kid there is nothing better than my dyed Easter eggs turned into egg salad sandwiches. I’d pick and choose which eggs my mom could crack for sandwiches though and save all my favorite eggs.

Ingredients:

One dozen hard boiled eggs, chopped

1/2 cup mayo

2 tablespoons paprika

1/4 cup mustard

1 tsp salt

pepper to taste

wheat bread

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together. I suggest adding a little salt at a time to test it for taste. I then toasted my favorite wheat bread from Trader Joe’s and served it with some homemade kale chips.

Hot Apple Pie Holiday Cocktail

IMG_3923 Every holiday season, my mom makes this apple cider cocktail for family and friends. It’s one of my favorites and always reminds me of the fall and winter months. It’s super easy and a great warm drink to entertain holiday guests with. I love staying up on Christmas eve by the tree and sipping on one of these. The ski slopes make awesome ones too.

The Perfect Kale Chips

I was hesitant to post this recipe because I am certain this wasn’t the first blog post on kale chips but I wanted to document it anyways.

We brought home a TON of kale from Landyn’s vegetable picking field trip so I decided to put it to use and give these awesome kale chips a whirl.

SO easy you guys.

Ingredients:

kale leaves

olive oil

sea salt

Directions: 

I washed and dried my kale leaves and tore them up into bite size pieces.I threw out all the inner stems.

I then greased a large baking sheet and spread the kale evenly across it.

I drizzled about 2 tbsp olive oil across the kale pieces and topped with sea salt.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. The kale shrinks up so more is less.

Enjoy!

On another batch, I drizzled soy sauce and sesame seeds across the kale. They were both awesome.

Have a great weekend!
