It Smells Like Halloween

"It smells like Halloween" - between the crisp, cool air, apple picking and chocolate.... YES, chocolate! But what happens when you have food allergies? How do you celebrate autumn traditions safely and deliciously? My personal suggestions- a new, easy recipe and a giveaway! But not just any kind of recipe or giveaway; a recipe and giveaway with two of my favorite products that can be used for a healthy twist on a favorite fall treat.

Usually, the norm is to make caramel apples. For those with food allergies, a store-bought or even homemade caramel apple may not be safe at all due to dairy and possible other allergens. And caramel- have you had a caramel apple lately? It gets stuck in your teeth. Is there a way to make this allergy-friendly and add a healthy ingredient to it? Yes, yes there is and all you need are two ingredients (maybe 3-4 depending on your flavor request).
