Fall Favorites: Caramel Apples & Pumpkin Fudge

From the fresh breeze to the colorful array of leaves falling from the tree, Boston is full of life this fall. Your family is probably just as busy as ours, cleaning out the gutters, raking the leaves and unpacking Thanksgiving decorations. After a Saturday afternoon working around the house, enjoy one of Hilliards Chocolates’ favorite fall confections!

Caramel Apples

The perfect treat to enjoy during the fall months, the first caramel apple was created by Dan Walker in the 1950s. A Kraft Foods employee, Walker was experimenting with leftover Halloween candy when he decided to try an apple dunked in melted down caramel. Although caramel apple machines have been in production since the 1960s, our caramel apples are made by hand, dipped in caramel before being coated with chocolate and paired with a variety of delicious toppings. Choose from your favorite chocolate, either Milk, Dark or White, and then from a variety of tasty toppings and bite into a crisp, fresh caramel apple this fall.

Pumpkin Fudge

While no one knows who created the first batch of fudge, this delicious treat has been an American favorite since the late 1800s. Sweet and flavorful, there are many varieties to try. Satisfy your seasonal cravings with one of our specialty flavors, pumpkin pie fudge, and our new flavor “pumpkin swirl” which is a combination of chocolate and pumpkin together! Made by hand in our copper kettles, this gourmet fudge will remind you of a slice of pumpkin pie!
