Since it's the beginning of the fall season and with that we all feel like getting crafty and bakey (is that a word?) I am feeling generous and so will be hosting a giveaway.
I love to bake. I especially like to bake apple empanadas. I am even more delighted that my apple empanadas have been so well received and I have people ask for them all the time. I posted the recipe here. Soooo I have decided to giveaway a brand new Tupperware empanada maker! This little gadget is wonderful for making empanadas, apple fritters or turnovers. It's basically non-stick and so easy to use.
I am also including a brand new Betty Crocker cookbook featuring the cake pops I'll discuss below. It is filled with great recipes that tear off to get you started with baking.
And to top it all off I am also including a BLT dip mix from Celebrating Home to the package giveaway. This delicious mix will be a hit at your next football watching party.

Now for the cake pops:
I found this wonderful idea at the bakerella.com website. I went out and bought the Betty Crocker fall cookbook and tried the recipe out.
Unfortunately I didn't melt the candy coating correctly and it came out too thick. When I tried to melt it more (in the MW) it started to become stiff. So I stopped and let it cool down and I kept stirring it and stirring it so it was soft like soft cream cheese. Not exactly candy coating type but it'll do. I then took the lollipop stick and stuck it in the cake ball and spooned the candy coating on the pops. When they hardened they did not look like the picture but were still very yummy! We have enjoyed them and you can learn to make them with the cookbook or by buying Bakerella's book. She came up with the brilliant ideas!!
So here's the pics of my cake pops (first attempt so go easy on me) made for my son's 13th birthday party!
Happy baking :)
