Lets be honest though once school starts and summer ends I am instantly ready for Autumn. Since I live in Florida where it is still eighty-five degrees in the middle of October it is sometimes hard to feel like fall is here. When I think of Autumn one of the things I think of is all of the yummy snacks I get to have. Honestly you can eat these anytime of the year, but when I think of fall there are a few snacks that just pop into my head. Even if I have been eating it all year round they just help me get in a fall mood. So here are a few snacks that are my favorites to eat during this season.
Lets start off with one that I have been eating a lot of lately and that is Muddy Buddies. I'm going to say I believe a lot of people know what muddy buddies are. Maybe you've heard of them. They are basically Chex cereal covered in chocolate, peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar. It's like a trail mix; a very addictive trail mix. If you're not careful you will probably eat all of them because they are amazing. The recipe I use I got from Pinterest. It is so easy to make you really cannot go wrong with this one. Everyone in my house loves it. Also there are so many different kinds of Muddy Buddies recipes and the options for this snack are endless.
I know this isn't a snack, but it is my favorite thing to drink during the Fall. I look forward to it every year. Yes, it is pumpkin spice, but no it is not the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. Every year my best friend Emily makes Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate. It is so good and made from scratch so you can't just go buy a pack of this hot chocolate. This is definitely something I do not drink year round because I live in a hot place. So, I get so excited when the weather starts getting cooler because then I can talk Emily into making it. I do believe the recipe is on Pinterest so if you want to try it definitely look there.
Ok so I don't know about anyone else but I basically grew up on these and they will always be my favorite, cinnamon rolls. I'm pretty sure almost everyone has had one unless you have an allergy. This is one of those things I eat year round but they give me a lot of Fall vibes, Thats probably because of all the pretty fall photos with cinnamon rolls I see on Pinterest, We Heart It, and Instagram. We usually just buy the Pillsbury brand because its quick and easy. But, if you are brave enough to make your own then go for it. I found out from Emily's mom the other day that they actually make theirs homemade. Now, I have yet to try them but I am sure they are tasty because they are always making something delicious and amazing.
This is something I eat almost everyday or every other day. I am actually Diabetic and have been since I was a baby. So something I eat to get my sugar up if It drops or I eat it just because I want is Rice Krispie Treats. My mom usually buys them but usually during the fall I try to make a some home made ones. We used to do this all the time when I was younger. I even remember trying to help my nana press the rice krispies into the pan to cool down. Yes you can just buy them in the store for a little sweet treat. But, if you have ever had a home made rice crispy treat then you know they are so much better and fresher. Plus if you make them yourself you can make any kind you want and even decorate them.
Cookies are always a good snack option. The cookie that makes me think of fall the most are Snickerdoodles. My mom and I make snickerdoodles every year around Fall and Christmas time. They are always a hit and a nice little treat to have. But, if you're not careful you probably will eat all of them.
This one is another drink and it is one I usually only drink during this season alot. I look forward to it every year. That is hot apple cider. When I can start drinking hot apple cider it instantly makes me think of fall. My mom usually gets me the apple cider Keurig pods and think you can get them on amazon. But if you are brave enough you could definitely try to make it yourself. There are plenty of recipes one Pinterest so it won't be hard to find.
There are so many food and drinks to look forward to in Autumn that make the season so much more exciting and I love them all. I know that once Fall starts I am on Pinterest looking for D.I.Y’s and snacks to make. So I hope this helps you get in the Fall mood. Also help you make some amazing tasty Autumn snacks and drinks.
