Fall is definitely in the air here in central Indiana! The weather has cooled off 30 degrees this week, the corn it turning brown and it’s getting dark outside by 8:00!!
So, I thought I would celebrate the beginning of the fall season with a couple of great recipes from the Gooseberry Patch Homemade Harvest cookbook. After we post all 10 recipes we will be giving away a copy of this cookbook!!
Autumn Caramel Corn
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. dark corn syrup
1/2 c. butter
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1/4 t. baking soda
3 qts. popped popcorn
Bake at 250 for one hour, stirring every 15 min. Enjoy!
Trick – or – Treat Trifle
18 – 1/2 oz. pkg. chocolate cake mix
5.9 oz. pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix
2 1.4 oz. chocolate-covered toffee candy bars, chopped (OR any candy really!)

Prepare and bake cake mix according to package. Cool and cut into large pieces. Prepare pudding mix according to package directions; set aside.
In a large, deep bowl, layer ingredients beginning with half of each the cake, pudding, whipped topping and candy bar pieces. Repeat layering again in the same order; cover and refrigerate overnight. Serves 10-12.
