Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls / #appleweek

I love egg rolls, don't you? I pretty much love any type of egg roll, and lately I have been experimenting with dessert egg rolls! They are so much fun!! Plus, everyone loves them, from little ones to Grandma. I don't remember anyone ever refusing a dessert egg roll!

So, for #appleweek, I made these Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls! They are crispy, full of Imperial sugar and spice, and apples that taste nice! Drizzle with a creamy, caramel sauce for complete dessert euphoria!
Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 10-15) 

3 medium to large Apples
1/2 cup Imperial Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
pinch of Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Cornstarch
1/4 -1/2 cup Water
1/2 tablespoon Butter
12 Caramel Squares
2-3 teaspoons Heavy Duty Whipping Cream


Peel and core the apples. Then chop them into smaller than bite sized pieces.
Mix together the Imperial Sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.
Pour sugar mix on to the apples, and thoroughly mix together.
Melt a 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a large pan. Add the apple mix. Cook on medium heat to start, stirring the apples often.
In a small measuring cup, mix together the corn starch and water. 
As your apples cook, you will want to thicken the sauce a bit. You need to make a roux. Add a little of the cornstarch mix to the apple mix. You may need to add more. The juices need to be mixed together with a whisk. Turn the heat up to medium high and as the heat goes up, start whisking constantly. The immersion of the mix and the hot juice, will make the sauce thicken and be so tasty. Once it is as thick as you want, pull the mix off the heat.
Lay the apple mix diagonal across an egg roll wrap.
Using a bit of water and a pastry brush, brush water around the edge of one sde of the eggroll wrapper. You are creating a border around the edges so they will not break open when you are frying them. 
Fold the right and left corners into each other.Then bring the bottom one up to meet the middle. Put a slight bit of pressure on the roll as you roll it to the top to secure it. 
Place in a preheated fryer or pan and cook for 3-4 minutes at 350 degrees. They should be golden brown when they are done.
Melt the caramels in a double boiler. Once melted, heat the heavy duty whipping cream in the microwave for less than 10 seconds. Once it is warm, add the cream to the melted cramel, a little at a time. It should be smooth and drip from the spoon when the spoon is lifted from the pan.
Drizzle the egg rolls with the caramel sauce. Serve additional sauce on the side.
Look at these yummy Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls!

Cinnamon Apple Fritters / #appleweek


This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek .
I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the
creation of the AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

I have loved Cinnamon Apple Fritters since I was a little girl. But, I haven't had them since .....well, I can't even remember the last time! So when when it was time to decide on apple recipes for #appleweek, Cinnamon Apple Fritters were a definite YES! The fritters are full of all the yummy fall flavors, and made me wonder why I waited so long to have them again. I know you will love this recipe too! It is full of flavor, and the fritters, served either hot or cold, are amazing and known to be addicting!
Cinnamon Apple Fritters
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes enough for 4 -5 people)

2 large Apples-peeled

2 tablespoons Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Allspice
Pinch of Salt
1 1/4 cup Flour
1 cup Beer
Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Caramel Bits
1-2 teaspoons Heavy Duty Whipping Cream
Chocolate Shavings



Start by chopping your peeled apples. You'll need small pieces as shown. For how to cut a small, fairly consistent size, read here.


Place the apple pieces in a large bowl. Add the sugars, cinnamon, allspice, and salt. Mix together until all the apple pieces are coated.
Whisk together the flour and the beer. Let it set up for 15 minutes.

Add the apples to the batter.
I used my Swiss Diamond frying pan to fry the fritters and heated the oil to 350 degrees. Using a cookie scoop, place the fritter batter into the fryer. Turn them over as needed to fry evenly. When done, remove from oil and let rest on a paper towel. 
While the fritters were frying, melt the caramel bits on low heat. Make it sauce by heating the heavy duty whipping cream and then adding it, a little at a time, until the caramel is smooth and you are happy with it's consistency.
Serve with the caramel sauce and enjoy!

Triple Chocolate Cookies / #DarkRecipes

Today we are making #DarkRecipes to celebrate the #SolarEclipse that is happening today. I thought it would be fun to make these Triple Chocolate Cookies to commemorate the occasion, and because they are triple chocolate! Triple Chocolate! For all my chocolate loving friends, there is no need to say more! 
Scroll down past this yummy recipe and see all the #DarkRecipes being made today!

(makes 20-25 cookies)
1 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar 
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
2 cups Flour
8 ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips
6 ounces Milk Chocolate Chips


 Preheat oven to 350℉. Grease a cookie sheet or use parchment paper to cover it. In a large bowl beat together the butter, white sugar, brown sugar and baking soda.
Add the 2 eggs and vanilla. Mix in. Add the unsweetened chocolate that is melted and cooled.
Add flour and mix. Dough may be getting a little thick now.  Continue to mix until all the flour is incorporated into the dough.
Add the semisweet chocolate chunks, and the milk chocolate chips. Mix in with a spoon. 
This was a little difficult to mix, so I put a glove on and used my hand to evenly distribute the chocolate chips. 
 Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on rack, and enjoy!

Surprise Inside Brownie Bites / #SundaySupper

It's that time of year again! School is starting soon, or maybe it has already started at your house! Although my son has already graduated college, if I remember anything from him going to school, it was how hungry he was every day when he got home! Some kind of after school snack was a necessity. Lot of times I made it healthy and good for him, and other times I made something sweet that I knew he would like. That's what these Surprise Inside Brownie Bites are. A sweet after school snack with a little surprise inside!
Surprise Inside Brownie Bites 
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 25-30 )

6 ounces Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cup Flour
3 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of  Salt
Mini peanut butter cups (2 per brownie)

Frosting 
1 1/2 cups Confectionery Sugar, sifted
1/4 cup Butter, softened 
2-3 tablespoons Milk
1 ounce semi sweet Chocolate Square, melted
Chocolate Sprinkles




This is the pan I used, but you can use anything that will result in small, mini brownies. Grease the cups with spray, then wipe out any extra. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 Melt chocolate. butter and sugar in a saucepan over low heat. 
Pour into large bowl and add eggs and vanilla. Beat with mixer.
Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt to bowl. Mix together.
 Fill each cavity as shown.  Bake for 9 minutes, then remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
Immediately place 2 mini chocolate peanut butter cups in each brownie. Push down so they are even with the top of the brownie. I used Mini Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Trader Joes. They come in a 12 ounce tub, and they are fabulous! (and addicting) You could also use some of the mini peanut butter cups I have seen around at the stores, or even just a single small one, instead of a mini!  Cool for 5 minutes.
Remove from pan and allow to cool completely on the cooling rack.
Make frosting by mixing together the confectioner's sugar, butter, milk, and melted chocolate square.
I used a Witon tip #31 to decorate some of the brownies, but not all. They taste good both ways! Sprinkle sprinkles on the ones with frosting and enjoy!
