This pandemic has not been easy. But here are three DIY fall-inspired treats to make with your roommate(s) or friend(s) to get you in the Fall spirit!
1. Fall Popcorn Mix
Song: Get You (feat. Kali Uchis) - Daniel Caesar
Seasonal candy of choice (preferably including Harvest blend M&Ms)
Butter - around 3 Tbsp
Mix all the ingredients together. Depending on how much popcorn you pop, you don’t have to use all the butter, only enough to help bind sprinkles to candy and popcorn. My personal blend would be popcorn, fall sprinkles, M&Ms, mini Reese's cups, mini-pretzels, and mini marshmallows.
?An alternative would be to replace popcorn with Muddy Buddies to make a delicious Fall Puppy Chow!
2. Caramel Apple Dippers
Song: Sweater Weather - The Neighborhood
Movie: Knives Out
Granny Smith apples
Candy and Sprinkles
(Optional: Set up bowls of items you can dip your apple in after dipping them in caramel?)
Cut the apples into slices and set up one main big bowl for your caramel and smaller bowls for your decorations. Pat your apples on a paper towel before dipping to ensure caramel sticks to your apple. Dip your sliced apples into caramel then dip them into your desired candy/sprinkle coating.
3. Pumpkin Patch
Song: Suburban Wonderland - Between Friends
Movie: Dead Poet Society
Chocolate pudding cups
Pumpkin shaped candy
To make your pumpkin patch: open the pudding cups and mix the pudding until there are no uneven bits. Sprinkle the crushed Oreos on top for your soil and add sprinkles with your pumpkin-shaped candy accordingly.
?Add a popsicle stick with a taped sign saying: “pumpkins $2” for extra cuteness.
