- Candace's Gourmet Campfire Salted Caramel S'mores Dip -

"Feel like a kid again with this ooey-gooey take on your classic s' mores. Enjoy them over a campfire or in your oven!"

- Candace Hagaman, Pastry Chef | Timberlake's Restaurant

- Ingredients - 

Small cast iron skillet 6" - 8" and/ or heavy-duty tinfoil
Non-stick pan spray
1 package of mini marshmallows
1.5 cups of good quality semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (preferably Ghirardelli)
1 box of Honey Graham Sticks or Honey Graham Crackers
1 bottle or jar of salted caramel (ex. Ghirardelli Sea Salt Caramel sauce)

Directions:
Place a grate over the campfire to set the cast iron skillet on. For easy clean-up, spray the cast iron skillet with non-stick pan spray
Spread an even layer of mini marshmallows in the bottom of the skillet. Spread the chocolate chips evenly over the marshmallows. Drizzle salted caramel sauce over the chocolate chips. Top with another layer of mini marshmallows.
Cover the skillet with tin foil, place on the campfire. Let it cook until the marshmallows and chocolate are completely melted, about 5-10 minutes. Uncover the skillet and let the flames brown the marshmallows. Remove from the fire, drizzle with additional salted caramel.
Serve with Honey Graham Sticks or Graham crackers for dipping. Enjoy!
Add toppings such as sliced bananas, peanut butter, cinnamon pecans, etc

Special Notes:
*If you do not have a cast-iron skillet, you can use several layers of heavy-duty tin foil to make a bowl for the dip
*If you do not have a grate to place on the campfire, simply just wrap the entire skillet in tinfoil and place in the fire
*If the weather does not permit a campfire, you can make this dip in a cast-iron skillet or oven-safe baking dish, by baking in the oven until melted and marshmallows are brown and bubbly. About 10 minutes @ 350 degrees

- Candace's Apple Cobbler with Cinnamon Swirl Biscuits -

"Capture the sweet, warm flavors of fall in this gorgeous apple cobbler! After all, is there anything better than your home smelling like freshly baked cinnamon apples? Three of my personal favorites, apples, biscuits, and cinnamon rolls come together in this unique, satisfying dessert. Enjoy!"

- Candace Hagaman, Pastry Chef | Timberlake's Restaurant

- Ingredients - 

For the biscuits:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons of butter
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

 

For the cinnamon swirl filling:
½ cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, melted

For the apples:
2/3 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
6 cups sliced and peeled granny smith apples
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ginger
1/8  teaspoon allspice
2/3 cups water

- Preparation - 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

  1. For biscuits, in a medium bowl combine flour, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until fully combined. With a pastry blender, cut in 4 tablespoons of butter into the flour mixture. It should resemble coarse crumbs. Stir together milk and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the milk and vanilla all at once. Using a rubber spatula, stir the dough together just until it forms a ball. Do not overmix.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for about 5 strokes. Roll the dough into a 12" x 16" rectangle. Combine, nuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Brush the dough with 1 tablespoon of butter and sprinkle with nut mixture all the way to the edges. Roll up in a spiral, starting from the short side. Pinch seam to seal. With a sharp knife, cut into six 1-inch thick slices, set aside.
  3. For the apple filling, in a large saucepan stir together 2/3 cups brown sugar, corn starch. Add apples and water. Cook and stir until bubbly and apples are tender. Carefully pour hot filling into an ungreased 2-quart rectangular baking dish.
  4. Arrange biscuit slices cut side down, onto the hot filling. Bake about 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or until biscuits are slightly golden. Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream.
