20 Halloween Candy-Filled Recipes to Scare Your Sweet Tooth Silly

Halloween Candy Recipes I'm a non-discriminating candy fan. I love candy of all shapes, tastes, sizes (preferably King), and sugar contents. All in moderation, of course. Clearly, you can understand why Halloween is my poison. I become instantaneously overstimulated. I strategically stay away from the houses and apartments of friends with small children because, well, I may accidentally steal all of their candy, or just eat it on the spot, and then, well, they'll cry because it's all gone. I'm sorry. I just can't help it, I swear.

ANYWAY -- what better way to get amped up for the spooktastic holiday than with a little baking, right? Hell, if you start baking with candy now, you may be less tempted to eat an entire bag of fun-size Snickers in one sitting come October 31. OK, that's probably not true. But why not start the fun a few weeks early?! 'Tis the season to gain a few extra pounds!
