* Autumn Snacks *

I found this in my "stuffs" and truly didn’t expect to find a site to link to, as there wasn’t one saved with it, but good ole Google took me right to it!

Autumn brings to mind apples, cider, squash and the savory sweet taste of pumpkin pie and bread. It’s also the time of year when the kids start spending a little more time indoors and need some activities and snacks to occupy their minds and hands. Try out these fall themed recipes.

*Simmered Fall Punch*
Ingredients:
2 cups apple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 or 3 cloves
Simmer on the stove for 20-30 minutes. Take out cloves before serving.

*Banana Pumpkin Shake*
Ingredients:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
1 banana
dash of cinnamon
Blend in blender until smooth and foamy. Serve immediately.

*Applesauce Cinnamon Salad*
Ingredients:
2 (3 ounce) packages raspberry gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup cinnamon candies
4 cups applesauce
Add gelatin to boiling water and candies. Stir in applesauce and chill until firm.

*Creamy Orange Dip and Fruit*
Ingredients:
1 package cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1/3 cup crushed pecans
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together all ingredients until smooth. Place in a nice bowl and surround on a tray or platter with strawberries, kiwis, grapes, apple slices, oranges, pear and peach slices. You may use all of these or some. If your kids are like mine and don’t like nuts, you can leave those out if you wish.
