Candy Corn M&M’s Crispy Treats

Crispy treats are great, and I think they’re even better when you make them with extra add-ins! Last winter, I made some Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats which were really good, so I thought I’d try an autumn version with candy corn.

Part of the recipe calls for heating sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan and this works best with a nonstick saucepan (it helps prevent the sweetened condensed milk Continue reading

Caramel Apple Oat Squares

Caramel apples are a favorite fall treat of mine. That’s probably why I tried making these Caramel Apple Oat Squares years ago when I clipped the recipe from a magazine—how could I resist a recipe with that wonderful caramel apple flavor? These dessert squares Continue reading
