Let's be honest, when it comes to Halloween we're only in it for the candy. Sure, the costumes are fun, the parties are good and trick or treating is amazing, but really, it's all about the Halloween loot.

As a child, getting the biggest stash of Halloween candy was definitely a source of pride, and that's still true for some adults. But the best thing about having an overload of booty as an adult is that you can use it to make Halloween candy recipes (read: more sugar and butter). Even if you've already done your fair share of Halloween cooking, you won't regret the effort you put into making these sweet treats.
