Butterfinger Peanut Butter Poke Cake for Halloween

This fun spook-tacular Butterfinger Peanut Butter Poke Cake is sure to be a huge crowd-pleaser at your next Halloween party or get-together. #ad #Butterfinger #Nestle 
 
October is here, which means Halloween is just around the corner. We have about 2 weeks left until Halloween, so it's time to start thinking about all things spooky and fun! Now that my kids are older they don't go trick-or-treating anymore, but that doesn't mean we still can't enjoy the fun of Halloween. 

For my teenagers instead of trick-or-treating now, it's all about dressing up, getting together with friends and handing out candy to the neighborhood kids. I always plan something fun, a themed dinner and scary movies are always a must to kick off Halloween and I always make a yummy dessert to end the night. It's usually something simple with a festive Halloween theme.

Slow Cooker Apple Pumpkin Butter

This Homemade Spiced Apple Pumpkin Butter is sweet, creamy and so easy to make in your slow cooker.  🍎
Fall 🍁🍂 is definitely my favorite season for baking!  As my summer garden slowly comes to an end, it's time to start looking forward to fall and all it has to offer. As the season changes, fall also brings new in-season produce apples, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and winter squash. 

Oh, how I love apple and pumpkin season. For me there's nothing more comforting and satisfying than a pantry and freezer full of homemade and home canned items. Bags of summer corn and berries, jams, jellies, preserves, pickles, relishes, and homemade fall butters.  

I used to purchase store bought apple and pumpkin butter, but that was before I found out how simple it was to make from scratch. If you love apples and pumpkins as much as I do then you're going to love today's recipe for 🍎 Homemade Apple-Pumpkin Butter!

Pumpkin Pecan Crescent Rolls

These Pumpkin Pecan Crescents start with Rhodes frozen dinner rolls, filled with a pumpkin pie filling and rolled into a mixture of cinnamon-sugar and crushed pecans.  
Fall has to be my favorite season! The cooler weather, fall colors, changing of leaves, pumpkins, apple picking and all those yummy fall treats. September through November is nothing but apple and pumpkin recipes around here, so don't be surprised if you get bombarded with a ton of both. I just can't help myself.

Today is a sunny but mild 89 degrees, but Fall is on the horizon!!! Even though the fall weather hasn't officially arrived, I’m still choosing to embrace the season. When I think of Fall apples and pumpkins come to mind, so to kick off the fall season, I'm sharing a delicious pumpkin treat with y'all.
