Fall is upon us, my friends!  For our little family, that means squeezing in as much fun as we can in these last couple weeks before we add another little one to our family!  And what is more fun for the fall than eating lots of autumn-flavored goodies?

Today I have for you one fall fudge recipe, one fall children's book, and two giveaways!  Throw in some candles and cool weather, and you have a perfect early fall afternoon!







So first up, the recipe.  I was having a random craving a couple weeks ago for fudge and apple pie - so I combined the two and came up with this recipe!  This is a decadent fudge recipe that is almost like a dessert.  This recipe only makes enough for about four people to have a few pieces each, so if you are planning on serving more people, double the ingredients.

Caramel Apple Pie Fudge

1/2 apple, finely chopped
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 c. sugar
2/3 c. milk
1/2 stick butter
1/4 tsp. caramel extract flavoring
2 tsp. apple pie spice
3/4 c. white chocolate chips
caramel syrup (optional)


1. Combine apple, nutmeg, and brown sugar in a saucepan.  Cook apples over medium heat until they are tender.  Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Combine sugar, milk, butter, and caramel flavoring in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Let mixture boil for about five minutes (or until it reaches a soft ball stage), stirring often.

4. Pour fudge into a greased dish.  Add remaining apples to the top of the fudge, and pat down lightly with a spoon.  Add a drizzle of caramel syrup if desired.  Refrigerate fudge until served!

After you finish your fudge, carve up some pieces and settle down with your little ones on the couch to read a fall book together!  God Bless Our Fall is one that we got for this year, and it is so cute.  I like so many of the God Bless picture book series.  This one focuses on all the blessings that fall brings, like fall colors, pumpkins, and activities with friends and family.  Each page includes adorable illustrations of animal families doing autumn things together.  Bonus points for rhyming and the fact that it is a board book!

This book is a great conversation starter for building a fall bucket list with your kids too!  It will get them (and you) brainstorming on things you would like to do together as a family during the autumn season.  I know after reading it, I am looking forward to the corn maze and painting pumpkins with my littles - it's a great book to usher in the autumn season and all the fun that it brings!

It may sound boring, but I actually just love going for a walk with my husband when we have an extra day. Even though we always go to the same place, I feel like i always discover something new.

I've never tried to make fudge.. I'm worried that I will never stop once I start! But this just screams fall deliciousness to me, so I will need to just suck it up and make some of this... like now... I can leave work to make fudge right?

I love the idea of being a tourist in your own town! There are so many great "touristy" activities where we live, and many we haven't done yet! Thanks for the great idea!
