Doughnuts and Apple Cider

Doughnuts and Apple Cider

Fall has arrived, with winter soon to follow, so here are some seasonal dates that incorporate the holiday season.
For this date, spend some time in the kitchen. Work together to prepare these delicious homemade doughnuts and a cider with a personal touch. For a service-themed date, make your treats after raking lawns or share your treats with others.

Homemade Doughnuts
Find a recipe online and see our Helpful Hints article on Deep Fryin' before you fry up your doughnuts.
Apple Cider
1 gallon store-bought apple cider
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
10 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
1/4 cup butter (half a stick)
Bring all ingredients except butter to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add butter and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Serve warm.

Enjoy your snacks while having arts and craft time. Make some leaf rubbings and get creative with it. Some ideas are a comic book of leaf men or Thanksgiving cards for your friends and family.

When the weather turns colder and the snow begins to fall, get ready for Christmas when an ornament decorating party. Break out the old school photos or make a collage of all your favorite Christmas memories and share them with your date. If you want to get really crafty, see our latest Kitchen Craft for a holiday wreath to adorn your door.

Head up to Rock Canyon Park for traditional sledding or if you're up for a drive, try out Gorgoza Park in Park City. It's a snow-tubing park where you can do some mountain tubing.
After being out in the cold, warm up indoors with some hot chocolate with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. If you're feeling extra festive, be sure to add the green and red sprinkles!
