IDEAS WORTH CELEBRATING
From our family of bloggers
Just because it’s getting cold out doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. We decided to welcome the cooler weather with a fall-themed party. This was the perfect chance for everyone to get together before the snow hits to enjoy a cup of hot cider and some tasty treats.
Throwing a festive fall party can be very easy. I had some fall-theme decorations on hand, but you can also create your own fall decorations as a fun activity with the kids.
Things You'll Need
- Pine cones
- Apple Juice
- All Spice
- KIT KAT Wafer Bars
- HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Chocolates
How to Make
Pine cones, glue, and some glitter can instantly turn into a decorative table piece.
We decided to have some fun and make some KISSES Acorn Treats using HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Chocolates. This is an easy treat to make that takes just three ingredients and is very kid-friendly to make.
As another fall treat I made some fall-colored sugar cookies. You can make any cookie “in season” by simply changing the colors of the sprinkles you use to top!
For a drink, I added some apple juice, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and whole allspice to a slow cooker and set it on low. Adding spice infuses a great fall flavor into the apple cider. This is the type of drink everyone will want to keep drinking, holding their hands tightly around their mugs to feel the warmth of the cider.
Of course, there’s no way I could have a party without just a little bit of chocolate. I filled a bowl with KIT KAT Wafer Bars and some of the leftover HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Chocolates. This was a great sweet treat that was very popular with those of us who may have an affinity for chocolate.
As the leaves gradually turn from green to red, even here in the Rocky Mountains, it truly is a beautiful time. And it’s even more enjoyable when you’re able to spend that time with friends and family.
