Parents often warn children, prior to venturing out all dolled-up in their scariest ghost costumes, to avoid any and all un-sealed candy. We don't want to advise differently, but our list of 8 homemade candy recipes will put that rule seriously into question. This Halloween, try making a batch of tootsie rolls, almond joys, marshmallows, caramels, or truffles. Don't worry -- you can still pick up the fun-size pre-packaged goodies, too.
