What’s the trick to being the go-to trick-or-treating destination on the block? Homemade treats, that’s what. Instead of stocking up on heavy bags of individually wrapped candy this Halloween, answer the doorbell ring with sweet and spooky do-it-yourself treats that will be the talk of the neighborhood. Wrap these homemade candies in plastic sandwich bags or wrap, or get creative — and be sure to save some for your own house.
- You don’t necessarily need to part with your store-bought favorites to create something that is thoughtful and, for the most part, homemade. You can use all of your chocolatey, nutty, crunchy candy loves to make a treat that is all your own, like Spooky Chocolate Bark (pictured above), by melting down quality chocolate, sprinkling it with crushed candy, cookies and pretzels galore, and then letting it harden up in the freezer. Break it into individual pieces for an all-in-one taste of Halloween.
