Halloween Favorites

Caramel apples are my favorite non-candy Halloween-y food. Okay, so they’re part candy. But they’re perfectly adaptable: you can do them quickly using store-bought caramel candies or you can make your own caramel from scratch. I can go either way… no matter which method I choose, I burn my hand and leave a gooey path of destruction throughout the kitchen.

And they’re kinda healthy. Kinda. As healthy as a serving of fruit can be, coated in three layers of sugar. But it’s Halloween and that means it’s National Eat Candy Night.

From the archives, some of our favorite Halloween-y foods:
