October is one of my favorite months of the year – the busy summer season is over and we can actually take a break from all the craziness and just relax with friends and family, catching up on life. It’s also considered Fair Trade Month and one I’ve supported for the past three years alongside Fair Trade USA, creating recipes using fair trade products: Coconut Mocha Frappe, Double Coconut Chocolate Cookies, Ultimate Triple Chocolate Brownies, and Mocha Cinnamon Rolls.
And as you can see with my model Sarah, it’s also fun to eat fair trade goodies! Pumpkin Spice Brownie Snack Cups are such an easy dessert to put together but if you’re hosting a dinner, they are perfect to make because they come together so quickly and look incredibly cute in glass jars. For this recipe, I used Sunspire chocolate bars chopped and sprinkled on top of the Immaculate Baking Brownie Mix before I baked them. Then, to layer, I folded whipped cream with pumpkin puree and Frontier Organic Ceylon Cinnamon. All your favorite fall flavors in one!
Buying Fair Trade is something I deeply believe in and try to shop thinking about it – whether it’s at the grocery store or the clothing shops, fair trade products are everywhere. And buy purchasing them, you’re not only increasing the demand for them, but supporting farmers and producers in less fortunate countries to have a good life. Here’s what Fair Trade USA has to say:
Big changes can come from small, everyday decisions. Each moment offers an opportunity to build strong families, support education for children, protect the environment, and more. That’s why Fair Trade USA is running a special campaign called “Fair Moments” this October. Its goal is to show how everyday moments can have a worldwide impact when you choose Fair Trade products. See how your #FairMoments add up by going to FairMoments.org, and show us the difference you’re making in your own #FairMoments photos!
