4 fast, easy fall-themed foods that will have your family saying, “mmm!”
Macey’s makes it easy to prepare holiday gifts and fall themed foods for parties. Check out the following recipes for some quick, stunning autumn food ideas.
1. Spread autumn cheer with homemade caramel apples
Nothing talks autumn like a caramel apple. All you need are fresh apples, some M&Ms, and candy caramels.
To make perfect caramel apples, soak the apples in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Let your apples cool to room temperature before coating them in melted caramel.
Be sure to cool your caramel to 190 F before dipping the apples, and place the apples in the fridge immediately to help them set.

2. Help the meal prepper in your life: give the gift of mason jar food mixes
Clear, glass jars can be used in any number of ways.
Fill some mason jars with cookie mix, print out a cute recipe card, and tie it all together with twine. This makes a great present for a neighbor or co-worker.
Or, if you know a meal prepper, put together some oatmeal mixes or muffin mix. If you want to go above and beyond, you could even can some autumn soup to help them stay on top of their meal prep game.
3. Candy gift bags are a cute, fun gift anyone will enjoy
Stop by the gift wrap section at Macey’s and pick up some clear bags, twine, and tissue paper. Then, take a quick trip down the candy bar aisle.
It’s a quick way to say thanks and get in the season.
For an extra festive touch, look for bags and candy bars that already have autumn prints on them. Or, grab some construction paper and cut out leaves and pumpkins that you can tie onto the twin.
4. Autumn mugs make festive and versatile gifts
Grab some cute, festive autumn mugs at your local Macey’s, and fill them with whatever the recipient likes best.
Stuff autumn-themed mugs with hot cocoa or apple cider packets, marshmallows, warm socks, and holiday tissue paper. Depending on how large the mug is, you could even include a pack of mini cookies.
Or, put together a mug soup kit. Some ideas include an autumn squash soup mix or an autumn wild rice soup packet. Add some fresh rosemary, a cute spoon, and a recipe card for fresh, homemade dinner rolls, and you’re all set!
