Chocolate Chip Cherry Granola

If you like granola + chocolate + cherries, this Chocolate Chip Cherry Granola just may be the granola of your dreams! 🙂 It makes a nice healthy snack around Valentine’s Day too, if you’re trying not to eat so much candy. This granola is sweetened with honey, sweetened coconut flakes, dried cherries, and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. So it will satisfy your sweet tooth, but still has healthy things in it like oats, almonds, pecans, and sunflower seeds.

Caramel Apple Dip

I’m a big fan of caramel-flavored treats, especially this time of year! Like this Caramel-Apple Dip—it’s so good and easy to make! It has a rich, buttery, sweet, caramel flavor and the texture is just right for dipping slices of apples or pears. Or whatever fresh fruit you like! You could even dip dried fruit into this. Or pretzels, if you have a taste for something sweet-and-salty. As you can see, there are lots of yummy possibilities! 🙂

Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake

It’s always nice to have some yummy and easy dessert recipes on hand for fall, because it’s such a busy time of year! Like this Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake—just “dump” most of the ingredients into a large bowl, stir them together, and pour in a pan…and then sprinkle on the toppings—in this case, dry cake mix, pecans, and toffee bits. With melted butter drizzled over everything. So rich and delicious, no one will ever know it’s so easy to make!

This is the time of year when I like to make recipes with fall fruit like apples and pears, and this Fresh Pear Crisp is a yummy dessert you’ll want to try!

Mango Parfaits

Have you made any desserts in a jar? I’ve seen some great ideas on Pinterest and in several magazines, and also had reviewed 150 Best Desserts in a Jar a few years back—that’s where I discovered this recipe for Mango Parfaits. You can serve these cool, creamy, and fruity parfaits in small canning jars or any uniquely-shaped jars you may have…I’m always saving jars from jams, relishes, and other items because they’re just too pretty not to use!
