Pumpkin Spice Syrup or Pumpkin Juice & Butterbeer

A delicious Pumpkin Spice Syrup - Plus ideas for Pumpkin Juice & Butterbeer!

This month marks the one year anniversary of my boys’ introduction to the Harry Potter books!  We started when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was rereleased fully illustrated and haven’t stopped since!  I’m currently reading book 6 (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) out loud to the kids!

I love being able to share one of my favorite series with my children!  Dude and I are even dressing up as Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood for Halloween!

Eyeball Cookies #FoodnFlix

Eyeball Cookies - A spooky Halloween treat everyone will enjoy! 

It’s time for the Halloween edition of Food ‘n Flix!

In Food ‘n Flix, bloggers watch the selected movie for the month, then head to the kitchen to whip up something inspired by the movie!  Any blogger can join in the fun, just click the link to find out more!

This month’s film was Beetlejuice, hosted by Deb at Kahakai Kitchen.

I think I saw part of Beetlejuice, once, ages ago, but I barely remembered it, so it was time to watch it with foodie goggles on.

I’m sure most of you have already seen this movie at one time or another, so I won’t spend a ton of time on a synopsis, especially since this movie was really not my cup of tea.

You guys, I’m reeeeeally not into super Halloweeny or spooky movies.  Like, at all.  My idea of a Halloween movie is It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, or the Harry Potter series.

Ogre Eyes Hot Chocolate #Choctoberfest

Today is the Taste of Home Tuesday Choctober celebration!  Yes!  After a whole week of Chotcoberfest fun, I’m back again with more chocolate, because really, is there such a thing as too much chocolate?  It keeps the dementors away.  Or well, makes you feel better after a dementor attack at any rate.

Wait, what were we talking about?


More chocolate!

S’mores M&M Cookies #Choctoberfest

I’m wrapping up the #Choctoberfest fun today with more cookies!!

These ones are brought to you by #Choctoberfest sponsor Imperial Sugar

Imperial Sugar has been producing high quality pure cane sugar since 1843.  Depending where you live, you may find Imperial Sugar under the Imperial Sugar brand or Dixie Crystals.  Imperial Sugar started in Texas, but eventually expanded to include several sites throughout the Southeast.

Plus their website includes a ton of awesome recipes to try!

On to today’s cookies!

I was shopping recently, and I came across a bunch of seasonal M&Ms, including S’mores flavor!

I was pretty skeptical, but couldn’t resist the allure of S’mores, so I decided to give them a whirl.  Well, they left a bit to be desired, so I decided to give the s’mores flavors a boost – in cookie form!  Umm…again and again and again (hello, my name Amy & I’ m a S’mores addict…)

So, today I decided to follow up the chocolate & coffee combo with chocolate and peanut butter!

Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins #Choctoberfest

 *Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­­Caveman Coffee Co.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s time for the second #choctoberfest recipe!!  Yay chocolate!

Today’s recipe is brought to you by #choctoberfest sponsor, Caveman Coffee Co.

Caveman Coffee Co specializes in third wave coffee.  This means that the coffee is hand-picked, single origin, and small batch roasted for a superior coffee.

Right upon opening the coffee, it smells amazing.  And, once ground, makes and equally amazing cup of coffee!  Caveman Coffee Co. also sent me a package of cocoa butter that I have yet to same – stay tuned for some yummy recipes made with cocoa butter!

And what goes better together than coffee and chocolate?

I decided to use the coffee to create a chocolatey, coffee laden version of one of my favorite muffins: pumpkin chip!
