The tricks behind the treats
It wouldn’t be the same without the jack-o’-lanterns, costumes and spooky decorations, but it wouldn’t be Halloween at all without candy. And while store-bought candies may reign supreme, making your own confections is a fun — and delicious — project, perfect for kids of all ages. Take these three Halloween favorites for a spin: marshmallow ghost “peeps,” ghoulish gummies and candy corn. Make a batch or two to give to friends or pass around at parties. Or simply keep all that loot to yourself.
