Caramel apples are so fun – and synonymous, for me at least, with fairs and being outside in the fall. Dark Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Pears are their classier cousin – a little more refined and perfect for your holiday table.
I’ll willingly confess that for years I’ve wanted to be the person that could easily whip up something chocolate dipped. I always thought there was some huge secret I was missing out on – and it turns out there was… good chocolate.

I’m switching gears a little bit today to bring you a fun spring treat that’s also healthy!
These fun popsicles are made with Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt – which make them a great snack anytime, especially for kids!
Yes, January is almost over. And yes, I’m just now sorting through my Christmas pictures. Apparently this is life with two kids.
To be fair, all of the good family pictures and such were on my phone. I really need to get better at my camera!
I did find this, though. A quick shot of a delicious dessert – so I just had to share. If you’re someone who doesn’t like overly sweet desserts, this is for you. The tart cranberries and apples offset the sugar in this nicely.
I recommend serving it warm with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Heavenly!
