When you think of fall treats, what comes to mind? For us, it’s pumpkins or apples so here are two delicious apple fall treats that I promise everyone will enjoy!
As you know, we love to put a bubbly spin on everything we make. These two recipes are new favorites so trust me, go run and grab the ingredients now because you will be making these fall treats on repeat!
Apple Themed Fall Treats
Last year we took my sister’s nearly famous apple pie recipe and put a bubbly spin on it. It was such a hit that we decided to make some new bubbly apple fall treats. (By the way, if you didn’t get the apple pie recipe, trust me you will want it for the holidays!)
Bubbly Apple Slices
- 2 1/2 c (2 large) apples chopped finely
- Bubbly (we used a Poema Dulce)
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 t Cinnamon
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 c butter
- 1/2 c flour
- 1/3 c packed brown sugar
- 1/2 T sugar
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 T bubbly
- Peel apples and dice into bite size chunks.
- Place into a sealable container and pour bubbly over all of the apples until it’s completely covered.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or as long as overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 and prepare your 9×13 pan with non-stick cooking spray or parchment paper.
- Cream butter until light and fluffy.
- Add in brown sugar and granulated sugar and mix until well combined.
- Add in eggs, 1 at a time, beat well after each.
- Add vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and cinnamon together. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
- In the bottom of the pan, spread batter evenly. (I had to use both my spatula and my hands to spread the batter.)
- Remove apples from the refrigerator and strain them.
- Place the apples into a small/medium bowl and add brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix together until all apples pieces are covered.
- Top the batter with the apple mixture ensuring that the batter is completely covered with apples.
- If making streusel topping, sprinkle over the top covering all of the apples.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes. The sides will be golden brown.
- When cooled, mix together the bubbly glaze and pour over the top.
When you’re making any type of bubbly apple dessert, here are a few of our favorite tips:
Bubbly Tip: For dessert recipes, we typically use a sweeter bubbly (check out our sweetness cheat sheet to know what to pick when you’re at the store) or an Almond bubbly.
Apple Tip: My sister taught me years ago to use different types of apples when making a dessert. So for this recipe we used a Granny Smith and a Pink Lady.
Clearly, we like to soak all of our apples in bubbly for all of our fall treats, and we did the same to create this bubbly cocktail.
Bubbly Fall Cocktail-Two Ways
This bubbly cocktail was actually inspired by a member of the Bubbly Side community who wanted me to bubbly-ize a cocktail with specific flavors.
In my experimentation, I created one version and then decided to see just how different it would taste if I flipped the ingredients around and oh my gosh, it was so hard to decide which one I liked better.
They’re both delicious, but I do think if I had to choose, version 1 is my favorite.
Sparkling Caramel Apple (Version 1)
- 3 Apple slices soaked in Whipped Vodka
- 2.5 oz Cider
- 1 oz Caramel vodka
- Top with bubbly
- Cinnamon stick
Sparkling Caramel Apple (Version 2)
- 3 Apple slices soaked in Caramel Vodka
- 2.5 oz Cider
- 1 oz Whipped vodka
- Top with bubbly
- Cinnamon Stick
- Cut apples into thin slices and place in a mason jar or other container with lid. Cover with either Whipped Vodka or Caramel Vodka and soak at least 3 hours or as long as overnight.
- Place slices of apples into your coupe glass.
- Add cider, vodka and bubbly. (You can also add cider and vodka into a cocktail shaker with ice then pour into your coupe and top with bubbly.)
- Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
TIP: Before placing apples in your coupe glass, drizzle the glass with caramel.
