Celebrate National Dessert Month
October is National Dessert Month, and now that I know that, my sweet tooth is little out of control. I don’t even know where to start when it comes to talking about the wealth of sweet treats available in 417-land!
If you like to get your hands dirty and DIY your own sweets, The Rolling Pin has a sweet Halloween cookie decorating kit that’s available for $15 this month. You get a box of cookies shaped like bats, ghosts and witch’s hats, along with plastic bags of royal icing so you can decorate your own desserts. It’s a great activity for the kiddos, too.
Another kid-pleaser that certain adults (ahem… me) are obsessed with too is the caramel apple lineup at Bon Bon’s Candy House. This seasonal treat is available now for pickup in five killer flavors: plain caramel, sea salt caramel, Dutch apple, pecan caramel (my fave) and deluxe caramel.
Restaurant menus are rolling out seasonal desserts this month. Progress is upping the sweets game too and has released the third iteration of its popular Milk and Honey dessert. This one features that luscious milk jam, buttermilk panna cotta, a crumble of croissant and honey, a crunchy piece of honey glass candy and hints of wintry orange.
If super-easy homemade sweets are you thing, we recommend pulling up this oldie-but-goodie recipe for Mrs. Kreutz’s Rocky Road Bars from Elle Feldman. They are serious crowd-pleasers that come together in a flash.
