Pumpkin Spice Caramel Cups Recipe

When September comes around, it seems like we launch straight into all things fall. You’ll see signs for apple picking, stores decked out with pumpkins, and people starting to pull out their sweater stashes. There’s something so cozy and welcoming about this time of year, even though it means colder temps in most of the country.

Assortment of Pumpkin Spice Caramel Cups

One of our favorite indicators that fall is upon us is the ever-present pumpkin spice. It’s a cliché at this point that pumpkin spice is everywhere. Of course, it’s in coffee, pastries, even granola and yogurt. And hey, we’re here for it. Pumpkin spice is such a classic American flavor that only comes around once a year—why not embrace it? Plus, it’s delicious!

But when pumpkin spice meets caramel? That’s a whole new level of autumnal flavor. We love anything caramel-filled, covered, drizzled or dipped. Hey, we’ll take caramel straight-up too! Litehouse® Pumpkin Spice Caramel Dip opens up a whole new world of caramel innovation. It has all those warming fall spices you love in your latte, in a spreadable, dippable sauce.

Litehouse Pumpkin Spice Caramel Dip for Pumpkin Spice Caramel Cups

And the only thing that can upgrade pumpkin spice caramel? Chocolate of course! We’ve always loved making homemade chocolate cups. They’re super simple, and you can fill them with just about any sauce or spread. We started with nut butter, then, we experimented with jams and jellies. And today, we give you Litehouse® Pumpkin Spice Caramel cups.

These cute little cups have two layers of thick, not-too-sweet chocolate surrounding the gooey caramel center. They only take about 10 minutes to make, plus about an hour in the fridge to set. But three simple ingredients later, you have a fridge full of the cutest and tastiest treats of the season. These homemade sweets will have trick-or-treaters of all ages asking if they can please have more than one.
