Trick or treat, smell my feet, can I have a homemade sweet to eat? This year, skip the usual store-bought candies and whip up some Halloween classics in your own kitchen. Perfect to pass at a Halloween party or hand out to eager trick-or-treaters, our devilish decadences below are quick to make and feature your favorite sugary flavors.
It takes just four ingredients to make Food Network Magazine’s ghoulishly good Caramel Puffs (pictured above). Dip large marshmallows into creamy caramel, set atop crushed pretzel sticks and drizzle with decadent chocolate sauce. Once dry, put two of these salty-sweet concoctions in a cellophane bag for an easy gift.
Giada combines powdered sugar, egg whites and peppermint extract to make her refreshingly cool Halloween Peppermint Patties. After the candies have dried, she dunks them into a warm bath of melted dark chocolate for an extra-indulgent layer.
The Baby Ruth Candy Bar turns 90 years old this year. What better way to celebrate its sweet birthday than by making this tried-and-true candy for yourself? This seamless recipe features such traditional Baby Ruth ingredients as milk chocolate, gooey caramel and crunchy peanuts.
