Fall Treats: from Pin to Plate

By: Brenna Stefanov and Emily Angyal

It’s finally October, which means all things spooky and Halloween.  Normally we just pin autumn recipes, crafts, and fashion to our specified Pinterest boards and promise ourselves that we will use them sometime. This year, we decided to actually go back and try some of the hundreds of pinned fall recipes. 

We chose two simple recipes that seemed perfect for any Halloween party: pumpkin cheesecake truffle mummies and a sparkling apple punch to go along with our mummy treats. Although these were a ton of fun to make, the mummy truffles took a little longer than we expected, so they aren’t exactly a last minute treat to make.

One thing that surprised us about both recipes was how inexpensive they were; partially because we already had half of the items in our own kitchens. Normally, when you see things on Pinterest, you always assume that they are super expensive and complicated to make.  However, these recipes consisted of  just a few simple steps. There are also so many things you can do with each recipe to make them more to your liking and add your own flare.

It was a ton of fun to finally create our own Pinterest-inspired treats. If there is something you have always wanted to make, go for it! You won’t regret it.  Here’s how our creations turned out:
