Go visit Alton in the clouds.
Even though Christmas season has hit... I still needed to post this Caramel Apple Recipe, I made this batch for the Masquerade Ball 2 weekends ago. November has been the busiest month for me, so I'm behind on my posts but I really don't think you'll mind these tasty recipes, right? Well every fall my sisters, mom, and I get together and bake 30+ caramel chocolate apples to drop off at friends homes as a little thoughtful treat. It's been a fun tradition we started and I have lots of tips to share!
So I shared my family's Almond Brittle recipe over on Say Yes to Hoboken's blog here's a direct link.
To be honest, every year we make it and give it out to friends, they always rave about it and say we need the recipe, or you need to sell this! And well we've done neither, so here it is friends!
This is my absolute favorite Christmas treat. Growing up, my mother and I would make endless batches of this almond brittle to give out to family and friends and every time I eat it, it brings me straight back to my childhood. It's extremely addicting and I usually have to make at least 2 batches because by the time I'm ready to package it up, half of it is gone!
At one of the oldest Victorian homes in Riverside, the Fall Masquerade Ball was held. The house smelled of cinnamon, candles illuminated each room, and guests were in their Venetian best. There was an amazing array of cheese, brewing hot apple cider and each drink was topped with a rosemary cranberry sprig.
One of Landon's best friends from med school invited us and we were more than excited to attend. His friend, now our friend, owns this beautiful Victorian home that takes you back in time. It set the best tone for this Masquerade and they really did such an amazing job on all the decorations.
