Favorite Fall Foods and Drinks?

Post by KnittingFun14 »

I always enjoy a cup of hot spiced cider along with a game around the kitchen table with my family. \:D/

We've always just made it with cinnamon sticks, cloves, and the cider. Simmering it on the stove for a while until it's hot and flavorful

What are some of your all's favorite foods or drinks you enjoy having in the fall? If you have any recipes I'd love to see those too! :D

Yes you have big muscles and know how to run a farm, but I need a man that can give me the moon.
You are not the sun. I am." -Pengwin

Save me a slice, bookworm! :yum:

I love hot chocolate, especially peppermint hot chocolate, and I consider fall the start of the season for that.

I'm not a big fan of hot apple cider. My mom made some the other day and I had a few sips, and that was plenty for me. Last year I bought some fancy apple juice that didn't have all the spices and stuff, and that was really good. I had it hot and cold and it was good both ways.

We actually only ever had one that one time it was store bought. Kept the decorations so we could theoretically make our own now, but never have. Don't know if I ever will, I'm not really a baker.

I do want to make my own version of the cookies one year though that seems fun.

I'm not much of a baker either, so no criticism here. You could just put the decoration on a regular store-bought cake. #workingsmarternotharder O:)

I know it looks more like a Christmas drink, but they start selling Candy Cane Lane tea around November, so it always feels like a fall drink to me. It's just the best on a gray, rainy day. And my niece calls it bear tea. :inlove:

I just made some candied pecans the other day, which seem like an inherently Fall treat. I used these instructions which couldn't be simpler. :)

This isn't the first time I've made them, but for the first time this time the thought crossed my mind to try mixing them into something else. I had a box of Peanut Butter Chex on hand and that flavor combination sounded like it would be good so I tossed together a bowl of roughly twice as much Chex by volume as pecans and tried some.
I could not believe how good it was! :drool: I mean I expected it to be good, it seemed like it would certainly be a winning combination. But it's so far beyond just good, it was ridiculously delicious! I used all my willpower to not eat the whole bowl before Thanksgiving so the family who were coming over could try it, and they all also absolutely loved it.

I will definitely be making this again, and definitely not be waiting until next Fall!

Wow, that sounds delicious! I wonder if they sell Peanut Butter Chex in Canada. I would love to try that combination.
