OCTOBER BAKING CHALLENGE
October 2019 Baking Challenge: Caramel Apples
October is the unofficial month of CANDY! Last year, we focused on pumpkin spice toffee and this year, it’s all about apples… on a stick! The caramel apples recipe is a little different from the version in Sally’s Candy Addiction and I know you’ll love them. A candy thermometer guarantees success, so feel free to pick one up if you don’t have it in your collection already. I recommend either of these. I also recommend sticks anywhere between 5.5 – 7 inches. (I usually use these sturdy wooden sticks, which double as little skewers.)
Everyone who participates in the October Baking Challenge is automatically entered. See below for How to Join Sally’s Baking Challenge. My assistant and I keep track of your photos and randomly select 1 winner at the end of the month. This giveaway is open to the whole world. Giveaway ends on October 30th 2019 at 5pm ET.
1 winner will receive: $250 Amazon Gift Card. Winner will be selected at random and posted in the November Baking Challenge blog post on October 31st 2019.

Let’s Review the September Baking Challenge
September Baking Challenge: Homemade Cheese Bread
September days call for homemade savory cheesy bread, am I right? Well, you did it! You made bread! For many readers, this was the first time ever baking homemade bread. And I hope you’re incredibly proud of yourself. The cheese bread is one of the best breads I’ve ever had, homemade or not, so if you haven’t tried it yet– DO IT NOW!
One of my favorite comments came from reader Kara:
“I’m not going to lie, this months baking challenge was an intimidating one for me! I’ve never made my own bread, but OMG was this cheese bread good! Thank you Sally for continuing to give us these fun challenges each month, they are helping me to become a more and more confident home baker!”
Giveaway winner for September is Kathy and she has been notified. 🙂
