If you have kiddos around get em in the kitchen to help decorate. They will love getting creative with the candies, just as much as they will love the final product.

Apple Rosettes

Happy October everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the changing of the leaves, pumpkin patches, apple cider, and all the other things that go hand in hand with this delightful time of year.

Here at FrogLegs we love cooking and baking with fresh seasonal produce (it tastes better!). In October this means apples! Delicious all year round, but extra crunchy and juicy this time of year. We love apples a little extra because we live and cook in Washington state where most of the nations apples are grown!

Recently we have been making apple rosettes; they’re healthy, delicious, and pretty, whats not to love about these sweet treats?  So celebrate apple season with us by making a bouquet of Apple Rosettes!

In the video below Mrs. FrogLegs will show you just how easy and fun they are to make!
