Candy!

Ok this post is just to prove what a candy addict I am... plus, as autumn comes so with it come the myriad of wonderfully yummy treats orange and brown to entice your taste buds! I have been baking about one homemade treat a week and I bought new stuff I'm anxious to try out! Come over to dinner so I can have an excuse to bake!

Seriously, I try not to make sweets just for J and me, unless it's in a small amount so we won't have too much and end up unhealthy and overweight. I did make 6 "haloween" cupcakes last night: white cake batter with haloween-colored sprinkles inside, a pale orange almond-buttercream frosting, and appropriate colored sprinkles or black spider-webs frosted on top. I'm thinking of taking 2 to my friend tomorrow, so we each only have 2 each.

Anyway, at Cracker Barrell the other night I came across the new Caramel Apple Sugar Babies and, being a die-hard Sugar Babies fan, had to indulge (or rather, J did since he paid). I can't say I love them, but as a lover of caramel apples (and things like apple jolly ranchers, caramel apple cow tails, and caramel apple pops) they are a very enjoyable.

I also want to try these:

They both seem like wonderful autumn treats. Plus I'm constantly becoming addicted to seasonal treats just so I can drive everyone crazy with my inability to get them the other 9 months out of the year (such as Coffee Mate's Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread creamers)!

Anyway, I bought these at the store last week & now want to ues one of them to make a dessert for church small-group this Sunday. The Creamy Mint Brownies look so good!

Okay. Now I am hungry. For candy. And it is only 9:30 in the morning. Those Andes mints look really good.

How are you feeling? 10/15 seems so far away!

Oh the Sugar Babies are really good. I bought them a few weeks ago. We enjoyed them at the movies. Snuck them in of course. :)

Okay, I've tried that caramel apple candy corn and it just isn't right....the regular candy corn is SO much better...especially mixed with peanuts for a nice salty/sweet combo.

I liked the caramel apple candy corn. It's not like candy corn at ALL, but it's really good anyway. It's very apple-y at first and then the caramel kicks on...it's VERY much like a caramel apple. :)

You need to make a new post... all I see is delicious candy staring at me every time I check your blog, and I'm about to cave and eat an entire bag of SOMETHING.

Those peppermint things look sooooo yummy! Candy cane ice cream is my favorite. :)

ps- Have a link to the mint brownie recipe by any chance?
