Today I had fully intended to share a “Top 50 Day of the Dead Recipes” round-up post with you guys, seeing as how Day of the Dead is just over one week away and I’ve spent the past couple of weeks ramming Halloween recipes and round-ups down your throat. But guess what? There aren’t really that many Day of the Dead recipes on the internet. Unless you count the never-ending number of sugar skull cookies.
Witches and broomsticks, zombies and guts, ghosts and skulls, pumpkins and fancy dress – some things just combine together and define Halloween, you know? And whilst most people are falling head over feet for pumpkin recipes and caramel apple recipes, I’m all about chocolate orange recipes at this time of year.
Since I’m not really a pumpkin kinda girl, caramel and apple are where it’s at for me come fall. Combine the two ingredients, like in this Caramel Apple Scone recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago, and I’m in pure fall heaven. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there in blog land who falls head over heels for the caramel apple flavour combo, so I thought I’d tempt you guys with a collection of 50 of the best caramel apple recipes I found through Pinterest!
Halloween is two weeks away today, so I thought I’d help you get in the mood by sharing my most favourite Halloween recipes I’ve stumbled across on Pinterest, with a handful of my own Halloween recipes thrown in there for good measure, too. Aside from Christmas, Halloween probably is my most favourite holiday – there’s just something that makes normally gross guts and blood seem fun in October, don’t you think?
I am a total and complete sucker when it comes to themed baking equipment. As soon as I see a pumpkin-shaped cake mould, a snowman-shaped cookie cutter or some bunny-printed cupcake liners, I just have to have them. Must be something to do with the whole capitalism thing taking over the world.
