Caramel Apple Recipe Fun with the Kids

We had 2 huge bags full of apples from our apple picking trip so one of the ways the kids asked to use them was to make caramel apples. This is a new tradition for us, we always make apple crisp and pies but for some reason we haven’t made caramel apples before.  I was excited to try though and wanted to make it a really fun activity for the kids. 

For dipping we had:
Caramel (I melted Vanilla Caramel candy squares)
Chocolate
White Chocolate
Purple Chocolate
Orange Chocolate
Crushed Pretzels
Candy Corn
Halloween Themed Sprinkles
Crushed Butterfingers
Peanuts
 The kids had a blast dunking the apples in everything and getting as sticky as possible.  They didn’t want to stop but eventually we ran out of caramel.  We put them in the fridge to harden and I could hear little hands checking on them every few minutes.
They turned out so yummy and the kids were all so proud of their creations!
This is definitely an activity we’ll be repeating next year!

Want Something Sweet for Dinner? Dessert Pizza Recipe!

When my husband first came home with some pizza crust, cheese and bunch of fruit, I was baffled and admittedly turned my nose up to the thought of a “sweet” pizza.  However he pushed for me to just try it, and now I love them!  Its super easy, the kids clan their plates without a fuss, and its perfect for my sweet tooth!

Ingredients:
Pizza crust; I use a Pillsbury roll, its easy and tastes great
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Shredded Cheese; I use mozzarella, my husbands used a few different types, depends on what you like
Fruit of Choice; my favorite is bananas and strawberries or apples and raisins
Cinnamon
 Grease Pizza Pan and Layout Crust
 Add a Swirl of the Condensed Milk
 and Spread it Out
 Next Chop up your Fruit of Choice and Spread it Around
 Sprinkle Some Cinnamon on top of the Fruit
 Next add the Cheese like a Normal Pizza
 Sprinkle a bit more cinnamon on top
 Cook at 400 degrees, The time will depend on your crust choice.  This pizza took 25 minutes to cook
The pizza is done when the crust and some of the cheese is a Golden Color
 Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes
 Then DIG IN!
