Caramel Apples are another fall favorite since the apples are in season and Halloween is just around the corner.  Wouldn't these be perfect for a party with some Caramel Corn

I'm not sure how this all happened but we have been all about the caramel in our house lately and there's no better way to enjoy caramel then smothered over a Granny Smith Apple. I love the tart crisp apple meets the sweet salty caramel. 

The best part about caramel apples is the possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating with the kids. The kids had used some harvest colored M&M's to decorate the apples after they set up this time. 

A little fleur de sel salt sprinkled over the top would be divine or a little drizzle of some dark or white chocolate is heavenly. Dip in nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, if you dream it you can have it.

Here's how you make caramel for apples: 

Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake

Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake is an easy to make dessert recipe from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I made Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake to celebrate 15 years of marriage last week. We decide to have a simple evening in.

We usually go out someplace and make a big night of our anniversary or weekend but this year we spent the actual night at home eating dinner and dessert with the kids and then snuggled on the couch to watch Thursday night football.

After 15 years and 3 kids we've gotten to the point that it doesn't matter what we do so much as we are spending time together and having fun. Plus we had the previous weekend alone. When you have kids having the house to yourself for a night or two is like a dream come true! 

And since we were celebrating we had to have dessert, otherwise it's not really a celebration. So I decided to make a Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake with Lorna's help since I was having a massive chocolate craving, and it's super simple to put together.

It's a sweet chocolaty cake that floats to the top over a layer of fudgy sauce.

It definitely requires a scoop of ice cream to round out the richness and it's great for company since it's made ahead of time and requires very little supervision.

Apple Pie Crumb Bars

Apple Pie Crumb Bars are the perfect hybrid dessert of Apple Pie and Apple Crisp in one delicious easy to make bar recipe!

Apple Pie Crumb Bars are the perfect combination of apple pie and crisp making this the perfect Thanksgiving recipe for dessert from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I made Apple Pie Crumb Bars, because I couldn't decide if I wanted an Apple Pie or Crisp. I love the crumbly top and bottom crust with the tart, sweet, cinnamony apple filling.

Apple Pie Crumb Bars are an easy to make hybrid of the two and perfect for a crowd! They have plenty of crumb for all my crumb lovers out there with plenty of apple filling! 

 Lorna and I made 2 pans of these Apple Pie Crumb Bars so we had a pan to share and a pan for home because they never last long in our house.

I also highly suggest a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream because there's nothing better in life then appley, cinnamony, crumbly goodness with a good old scoop of vanilla.

I just happened to accidentally leave the vanilla ice cream out the night before so we had to enjoy our Apple Pie Crumb Bars at home without it but they were still amazing.

You really can't go wrong with these.
