Can’t resist candy this time of year? Create your own treat with non-tricky ingredients! Luscious dark chocolate, hearty hazelnuts and a dash of pumpkin pie spice come together in this incredibly easy recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Bark. Chunky, fun and full of fall flavor, you won’t be tempted to unwrap any of your kids’ fun-sized bars with a batch of this sweet stuff on hand.
What’s better than chocolate and peanut butter, when it comes to candy bar flavors? Try dark chocolate and almond butter—with a sprinkling of chopped cashews—and see for yourself! Replicate the wrinkled-edge look of store-bought butter cups by layering ingredients in muffin tin liners, peeling away the paper just before serving.
Like a match made in heaven, rich dark chocolate and tangy, tart dried cherries come together in this super-simple recipe for a snack or dessert that’s as delicious as it is good for you. With antioxidants and vitamin C, you can have a handful without guilt, or sprinkle them on ice cream for a special treat!
Pumpkin may be most popular when it comes to fall produce, but acorn squash comes in a close second! Roasting is a quick-and-easy way to prepare this mild and slightly-sweet, orangish-yellow “veggie” (which, like pumpkin, is technically a fruit). Just cut into wedges, prep with agave nectar and cinnamon and bake for about 20 minutes. Happy autumn!
Get your fudge fix with these nut-studded dark chocolate squares that look like they’re from an upscale candy shop but can be made easily on your stovetop. Packed with pistachios—one of the most protein-rich and lowest-calorie nuts—with finely chopped almonds and sea salt mixed in, they’re a gourmet treat with bonus nutritional benefits.
Mini anything is fun—but with tiny tomatoes, you get big benefits in addition to the cute, little size. Each red round is loaded with lycopene, a potent antioxidant, plus protein, fiber and plenty of good-for-you vitamins and minerals. Tired of just tossing them into a salad? Try this quick roasting technique to really bring out the rich, ripe flavor. Enjoy as a simple side dish, add to pasta or try them atop your favorite garlic bread.
