Tricks & Treats: Candy Recipes For Grown-Ups

This post is being done for the love of you, my readers. Because I have to say it is a challenge for a girl who has not had sugar, except for 1 cookie, in months,  I do adore candy, but not the kind that will be passed out this Halloween.  All of the high fructose sugar, chemicals, and preservatives in the store bought candy just does not appeal. This year, ban the wrappers and indulge in something really worthy of the calories.

Here: 17 Sweet Adult Treats

Halloween Candy Corn
Here's something you can whip up pretty fast  It's the perfect way to use up excess candy from Halloween. With Oreos, Reeses Pieces and pretzels, how can you not love it?

Butter Toffee Candy Bar Shots
You'll need a Silicone Chocolate Mold for this recipe. Find it at Amazon. I think I'd like to make these for Thanksgiving. What say you family?

Toasted Hazelnut Nougat
Toasted hazelnuts, dark chocolate, and homemade vanilla nougat come together for a gourmet candy bar.

Bourbon Sea Salt Caramels
If you are like me and love sugar and bourbon, this treat is for you. They can be made 2 weeks in advance.

For all of those kids - big and small - who love to sneak a chunk of cookie dough from the mixer, this candy is for you. And it's egg free.
