 Today I am super excited to be apart of Marilyn’s Fall Crawl. M is one of my bloggy BFF's. I was beyond excited when she asked me to join in the fall fun, she has whipped up on her blog. If you are new to Blissful and Domestic, Welcome! Sit back and relax. I have a yummy recipe for you today. So to get started I have a question for you.....Are you all ready for fall? I have to be honest.....I can't wait! The only hard thing is I live on the west coast...well near it...kinda of...so I guess the northwest.... I am in Nevada. Fall here is kind of a let down. No maple trees changing colors outside. We rarely have trees crunching under our feet. Oh and we never have leaf piles to jump in. I live in a desert. Since I don't have much fall goodness going on outside my window, I love to whip up some fall yumminess in the kitchen. This absolutely gets me in the fall mood. You know where you want to be cozy on the couch, wrapped in a blanket, sipping hot chocolate, and having a yummy treat. That is my idea of a beautiful fall day. I found this recipe for candy corn fudge in a Woman's Day Magazine. I knew it was right up my fall yumminess alley. I am excited to share it with you today. I hope it gets you in the fall mood too! I also have a printable recipe for you as well. Enjoy lovelies! 


Candy Corn Fudge

8 oz cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups white chocolate chips
2 cups pretzels broken
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup candy corn or Reese's Pieces

Meanwhile melt your chocolate in the microwave. Add to cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth. 1-2 minutes. Fold in pretzels and cherries. Transfer to pan. Refrigerate 2 hours. Cut into squares and enjoy!

  3. Thank you for your comment on my monthly menu planning post. Isn't ist so much freesom is shopping once a month?! I can't imagine making a trip to the store once a week. I am amazed that you all are living on $14,000 a year. Now that is inspiring! I will be back to see what thirty ideas I can glean from you. Thank you so much for sharing!

    BTW... that recipe is awesome! I am going to make those as a treat for the guys Chuck works with. They will love it!

  4. Nevada is not the west coast, it's the south-west. I grew up in Oregon (which IS the west coast) and we most certainly did have leaves changing color and crunching underfoot every. single. autumn!

    1. Thanks lady. Yes rude but no worries. Where I live it is a desert and yes it is in more of the southwest of the west coast. I don't worry about the technical geography issues I just want to share fun recipes and tips with my readers.

    2. I'm the anon from above and seriously, I'm rude? How do you figure? I corrected you when you made a mistake. I don't come on here and correct every spelling mistake you make (and believe me, there are plenty - so many that I worry for your children, since you insist on homeschooling them) but when you make a blanket-statement about 'the west coast' when you live in Nevada, yeah, I'm going to correct that, and I don't get how that's rude, or how I said it rudely. Would you rather continue in your ignorance? Obviously so. In which case, why should I bother reading your blog? Ignorance is not a virtue. Nor are spelling mistakes; no are mistakes of basic geography. What I said was certainly not rude. Frankly, I'm insulted by both your original blanket statement (that on the west coast leaves don't change colours - when you live in NEVADA) and by your response here.

  5. Hey girl, I wanted to stop by as a fellow Fall Crawl Blogger and check out your post on your day. I love fudge! Lovely recipe. Too bad you guys miss out on that part of Fall, but it seems like you are hanging in there just fine with your Fall kitchen yummies. Have a great day. Hope you will stop by my blog. : )

  6. If it makes you feel better, here in the midwest it's 44 and rainy and windy. So yeah, gorgeous fall color but kinda hard to enjoy right now!

    Mmmm that candy corn fudge recipe looks sooooo yummy! Can't wait to try it!

    p.s. Here in Illinois we consider Oregon and Washington to be the Northwest and Nevada to be the west (along w/ CA and Idaho). Southwest is Arizona and New Mexico. ;)

    p.p.s. Here in Illinois we consider other things to be a lot more important than accurate blogging of regions of the U.S. LOL Like, spending time with family, which you have mastered. ;)
