Party Planning: Fall Recipe Swap

A couple of weekends ago, I had a Fall recipe swap with some of my best girls. It was so much fun! Each girl brought their favorite Fall recipe and the recipe to share. Let’s just say there was a ton of pumpkin (#allpumpkineverything).

I made a pumpkin mouse, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and a Fall trail mix as a thank you for my guest. Additionally, I made a cranberry champagne punch and pumpkin spice lattes.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins:



1 box cake mix (gluten free for me!)

15 oz can of pumpkin

1/2 cup of chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350

Mix first two ingredients together and then add in chocolate chips

Pour in muffin tins

Bake for 25 minutes



Skinnytaste Pumpkin Mousse

I follow all of Gina’s suggestions, except I make cups instead of shooters. I also use Pamela’s gluten free chocolate cookies instead of graham crackers.


Fall Trail Mix


My mixture:

1 bag gluten free pretzels

1 bag marshmallows

1 bag m & ms

1 box corn Chex

2 bags of candy corn

I placed everything together and placed in triangle shaped cellophane bags. I topped with twine and a hand stamped thank you!


Β Cranberry Champagne Punch

Fill pitcher with ice. Pour inΒ equal parts champagne and sparkling cranberry juice.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I followed the advice of the Crockin’ Girls! I cooked in the crock pot and transferred to an urn for serving.

The Spread

We had pumpkin cornbread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin dip, pumpkin spice puppy chow, pumpkin spice popcorn, pumpkin fudge brownies, pumpkin bark, caramel dip, and a pumpkin danish. It was delish!!
