Fall Desserts

Every Wednesday at work we have a staff lunch. It is from 11:30-1:30. Every other Wednesday we do a pot luck, which means if your name is drawn, you have to bring something to share with the rest of the staff. Last week we drew names and of course, I was drawn to bring something. So, tomorrow for the stuff pot luck I have to bring a dessert.

I was thinking of something Fall-ish, and the only idea I could come up with, which is one of my favorites, is the carmel apple. So I was going to buy some apples, cut them up right before lunch and have carmel to dip them in. I don’t know, does that sound too boring?? Also, I’m worried about the apples browning before we actually get to them (after we have the main course).

So, why not share with me your favorite Fall-ish dessert and we will see what I can come up with. (FYI: Even if you don’t have a blog and you’re reading this, you can still comment! HINT, HINT). πŸ™‚

Remember, this is me, the UNdomestic Goddess, that is having to bake/make this. . .so don’t make it TOO hard! πŸ˜‰


While I was looking for a carmel apple photo (we all love visuals), I found this. Interesting!!

    Yummy. I want some dessert. What about a chocolate bread pudding? This one looks fantastic.

    Chocolate Bread Pudding

    Thaw two 13-ounce packages frozen French toast and cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes. Heat oven to 325ΒΊF. Lightly coat a 13-by 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place the toast in the dish. Beat 4 cups milk, one 12-ounce can chocolate syrup, and 2 eggs; pour over the toast. Cover with foil and bake 10 minutes. Remove foil and stir. Bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes longer or until set. Serve warm with canned whipped cream.

    You can buy pumpkin and pecan pies at Costco, Dierbergs etc. That is my recommendation if you don’t wanna try your hand at baking them. If you do want to try to bake something – try this easy Pumpkin Cream Pie recipe: http://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/detail.aspx?ID=28202

    That carmel apple with gummy bears is a dentists worst nightmare.
