October 21, 2015

Candy: It's the whole point of Halloween. Right? Right!

You can never have just one kind of candy—that would be absurd. There are candy bars (long live the full size), staples of a winning trick-or-treat bag, and plenty of bold and/or boozy goodies for the advanced sweet tooth. Here are some of the candies we'll be making (and eating) in time for Halloween:
