Fall Edition: Seasonal treats for you to devour with a touch of cinnamon

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year, and I love all of the tasty treats that I can make during it! However, as a college student, it’s difficult to manage academics, on-campus and off-campus activities and making delicious treats with very little time to spare. With campus beginning to settle into the fall spirit, here are three tasty treats for you to make in the comfort of your own home.

CARAMEL APPLES

Start to finish: 5-10 minutes

Servings: 1

2 packages of caramel 

3 tablespoons of milk chocolate

3 tablespoons of water

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

¾ teaspoon of vanilla extract

8 popsicle sticks

8 large apples

Toppings of your choice

In a microwavable bowl, combine the caramel, milk chocolate, water, cinnamon and vanilla. Make sure the bowl is uncovered, and microwave on high for 1-1 ½ minutes; stir. Microwave for another 30-60 seconds or until the caramel is completely melted.

Insert the popsicle sticks into the apples, and dip them into the caramel mixture while it’s still warm, turning to coat the entire apple. Roll it into the toppings of your choice, and place onto wax paper. Let it cool and enjoy!

APPLE CRUMBLE

Start to finish: 5-10 minutes

Servings: 1

Crust: 

1 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of all-purpose flour

¾ cup of brown sugar 

¼ cup of granulated sugar

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon of salt

¼ teaspoon of baking soda

¾ cup of unsalted melted butter 

Filling: 

6 medium apples

¼ cup of granulated sugar

2 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour

¾ teaspoon of ground cinnamon 

¼ cup of water

Preheat the oven to 176.7 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).

Peel and dice the apples, and arrange them into a 9×13 inch baking dish. Add water, sugar, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon into the dish, and mix until the apples are evenly coated.

In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, sugar, cinamon, salt, baking soda and unsalted melted butter. Mix well until the butter has soaked through the dry ingredients. Evenly sprinkle over the apples. 

Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the crumb and apples are baked to your liking. 

CHURRO CHIPS

Start to finish: 5-10 minutes

Servings: 1

6 medium tortillas 

4 tablespoons of melted butter

1 cup of granulated sugar

1 ½ tablespoons of ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 218.3 degrees Celsius (425 degrees Fahrenheit).

Cut the tortillas into 8 triangles, and toss them into butter, making sure both sides are coated.

In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Toss the tortillas into the sugar and cinnamon in batches. Place them on a large baking sheet in a single layer, and bake for 8-10 minutes or until crispy. Let it cool for 5 minutes before serving!
