We continue to look forward to Halloween, despite that fact that most of us are far beyond the acceptable age for trick-or-treating. But that doesn’t stop us. If there is a holiday out there dedicated primarily to eating candy, we are damn well going to celebrate it.

Making candy at home is definitely a project that requires some time and effort, but it’s worth it. You can replicate most classic confections, and you should -- they’ll taste better and, as a bonus, will impress your friends. Halloween staples like Tootsie Rolls, Almond Joy bars, and Cow Tales are actually surprisingly easy to make right at home.
