October 11th: Cure what ales you, Sample some chocolate beer

I admit, I’m not a huge beer fan. But, every once and a while, I have a taste for it. Which means my older brothers are in town, playing poker and drinking craft beers. Okay, they drink beer, and I sip some samples. Especially, when chocolate is on the label. Chocolate flavored beer. Game, changer.

Here are some variations of chocolate beer- so many flavors! Have you tried any? Let me know in the comment section below!

Wasatch Brewery: Black O’Lantern- Pumpkin Spices & Chocolate

Founder’s Brewery: Breakfast Stout- Double Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout

Flying Dog: The Fear- Pumpkin Spices with a hint of Chocolate

Left Hand Brewing Company: Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout- Black licorice, dark chocolate and coffee

Sonoran: White Chocolate Ale

Boulevard Brewing: Chocolate Ale with Raspberry

Not a fan of beer? Have a root beer! ( Don’t forget to add the chocolate).

Day 4: Pumpkin Patch Snack

Spending a day at the pumpkin patch can build up a fierce appetite. Tame tummy growls with a cute pumpkin- shaped snack.

Caramel Pumpkin Pretzels

These one-bite treats are perfect on the go, or for nibbling at home. They’re sweet, they’re salty, and best of all they’re simple!

Ingredients:

Small Pretzels

Caramels

Orange melting chocolate wafers

M&M’s

Directions:

1. Warm a caramel in the microwave for about 10 seconds. (Caution, it will be very hot). Mold the caramel over one entire side of the pretzel.

2. Place on aluminum foil, and chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, melt candy wafers in the microwave. Microwaves vary, but I generally start with 30 seconds and stir, and then, continue at 30 second intervals until smooth.

4. Dip caramel pretzels in melted chocolate.

5. While candy is still wet, add an M&M for the pumpkin stem. You may need to roll a tiny piece of foil up to prop the stem into place while it hardens.

6. Chill till hardened and enjoy!

Happy Pumpkin Patching!
