Happy October!

It's finally that time of year and I cannot wait! Looking forward to the chilly weather, fuzzy socks, hot chocolate, falling leaves and awesome holidays! Here's a little article about the things I love about fall to get you into the spirit of autumn!

1. Fashion - You simply can't go wrong with a perfect, cozy outfit for the cold autumn winds!

Scarves - The perfect accessory to complete your outfit. Plaid, solid, tasseled etc.

Coats - Whether they're trench coats, petticoats, rain coats or cloaks, they're all my favorite! It makes a statement and you can pair it perfectly with just about anything!

4. Scenery - Nothing beats walking outside and hearing leaves crunch under your shoes, the wind numbing your nose and the changing season around you.

Caramel Apple Cider:

12 ounces apple juice (or apple cider)
1 tablespoon Homemade Cinnamon Syrup
Fresh whipped cream (see Tips below)
1 tablespoon 5-Minute, 5-Ingredient Homemade Caramel Sauce

Bring apple juice to a low simmer in a small pot set over medium heat (or warm it in the microwave).
Transfer to a large mug and stir in 1 tablespoon Homemade Cinnamon Syrup (or more, to taste).
Top with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream and drizzle with 1 tablespoon Homemade Caramel Sauce. Serve warm.
To make a large batch of apple cider in the crock pot, multiply this single recipe by your number of desired servings, keeping in mind the maximum capacity of your slow cooker.
Pour the apple juice in the slow cooker and flavor it with the cinnamon syrup.
Set out a chilled bowl of whipped cream, a jar of caramel sauce, and a bunch of mugs for people to dress up their drinks. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate:

1.5 cups whole milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
pinch of ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
pinch sea salt
2 ounces white chocolate (roughly chopped)

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine milk, pumpkin and spices. Cook string constantly until just simmering.

Just before serving, top each mug with a generous mound of whipped cream, a few shavings of white chocolate, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
