I had so much fun putting together an autumn s'more party this week! It was filled with sweet autumn flavors, cozy blankets, a warm crackling fire, crisp autumn air, laughter, and good friends. I created chocolates for our s'mores in flavors inspired by autumn. Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel, Orange Spice, Butterscotch Toffee, and Caramel Apple. They all tasted just like autumn, and we each had a different favorite! Yum!
Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel = Dark Chocolate Candy Melts + Caramel + Sea Salt
Orange Spice = Orange Candy Melts + Red Candy Melts + Orange Flavoring Oil + Cinnamon Flavoring Oil + Clove Flavoring Oil
Butterscotch Toffee = Butterscotch Candy Melts + Toffee Crunch Topping
Caramel Apple = Light Green Candy Melts + Apple Flavoring Oil + Caramel
It just warms my heart whenever we get to use our cute vintage orange fireplace!
Hooray for autumn s'mores!
To make your own autumn s'more chocolate simply melt your candy melts in the microwave 15 seconds at a time. Do not overheat! Stir in flavoring oil 1-2 drops at a time until you love the flavor. Pour into a disposable decorating bag and secure with a rubber band. Snip the bag tip and pipe square shapes onto parchment paper. Sprinkle with desired toppings. Enjoy!

This is my first time working with butterscotch candy melts, new to our shop this year, and oh my.. they are so incredibly sweet and yummy! Perfect for these little owls! I found the butterscotch candy melts a bit stiffer when melted than others, so I would consider them much more ideal for molding rather than dipping.
I think my very favorite use for bakers twine is tying sweet bows on chocolate lollipops!
Follow our Basic Chocolate Molding Tutorial if you’re new to chocolate molding.
Tips: Roll the lollipop stick once in the mold to coat the whole top of the stick with chocolate, this makes the stick more secure. Get yourself more than one mold if you plan to make a lot, waiting for the chocolate to harden can become time consuming.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I've got a few feather themed projects lined up for you this week that will add something extra special to your Thanksgiving table. First up are these festive gingerbread feather cookies.
I hand cut these cookies using a feather cut from card stock as my template. Hand cutting did take a little extra time so I recommend cutting and baking your feather cookies ahead of time if you are making a lot of them.
After rolling and cutting press a lollipop stick into the back of the cookie and press on a little extra dough to secure the stick. Turn back over and bake cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Once cooled you are ready to decorate! I used orange and blue candy melts, and orange and teal jimmies. Melt your candy melts in the microwave 20 seconds at a time and once melted pour into a disposable decorating bag. Pipe stripes of candy melt onto your cookies and coat with jimmies. Let one color set before you move onto the next.
I've created a printable PDF for you that includes templates for all 4 feather themed projects created to help you celebrate this Thanksgiving. Download here: FeatherTemplate
My little helper happily got in on the action! She is the cutest!

This is what I did with our pumpkin seeds this year.. really delicious! Every year I'm the only one who eats them so I was looking for a way to jazz them up. Maple syrup and cinnamon did the trick.
I packaged them up in Glassine Bakery Bags and sealed them with Maple Bakery Labels to share them with a few lucky family members.
2 cups pumpkin seeds (washed and patted dry)
2 tb maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients together and spread into a single layer on the cookie sheet. Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheet before storing or packaging. Some parts will be a bit gooey, others will be crunchy. Yum!
