I absolutely LOVE Fall; it’s my favorite time of  year. I especially LOVE pumpkin…pumpkin coffee, pumpkin pie, pumpkin martinis, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin candles……you get the point

;)
 Inspired by some wonderful pins on Pinterest, I decided to try a few out. The delicious flavors of pumpkin and apple pie…….heaven!!  These jello shots are simple and can be modified so many different ways especially with all the Fall inspired flavored liquors that are available
:)
Enjoy!
