Book Club Tonight!

This month we read "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern.  My choice.  I LOVED it!  It was different, mysterious, magical, evil, love story - all of that wrapped into one book. 
That means it was also my turn to bring treats.  So I decided to make Party Popcorn!  Such a festive idea.
Pop your favorite microwave popcorn and then you melt almond bark and drizzle it over the popped corn.  Before the almond bark sets, sprinkle the popcorn with rainbow non pareils.  And be generous. It is so good - everyone loved it.  You can use chocolate if you prefer.
 Trying to keep with the circus theme, I decided to make a caramel apple pie.
The picture above is the pie before the top goes on. 
I used caramel topping which made it extra juicy. 
The top crust is on and ready to be in the oven.  
My daughter got up this morning, saw the pie on the counter and sent me the following text:  
"Mom, that pie looks perfect."  
Made my day!
