    Oh, my, those rice krispies ghosts are so cute! I think I have to make some, to give to the kids who might show up here.
    Thanks for this splendid idea!
    Halloween is a young phenomenon in Germany, so I don’t have a favourite halloween candy 🙂

  2. EVA says

    I’ve never liked fruity candy. It’d be one Laffy Taffy and I’d be done. Then it’d be time to move onto the good stuff: the mini Crunch bars, the Krackels, and the Mr. Goodbars! MMF. Really any of the chocolates I was down for, though I’d always give aways my Almond Joys and Whoppers.
    And for some reason, I always loved those little white candy sticks that come in the small Marvel character boxes. My parents always called them candy cigarettes, but I don’t think they were. Anywho, so plain, so DELICIOUS.

  3. Linda @ The Fitty says

    My favourite type of candy to get period is Hershey’s cookies n cream white chocolate! I mean, who can beat that?!

  4. Aisling says

    Okay that peanut butter fudge WILL be mine. Yum. I love peanut butter flavoured candies, but they’re not very popular in England!

  5. Rachel D. says

    I’d have to say, as a kid, it was always a toss up between those black-or-orange-wrapped peanut butter chewy things and peanut butter eye balls!

    These days, though, I usually just stick a ghost peep on top of my hot chocolate. 🙂

    Love this list, as always!

  6. Jennifer @ Show Me the Yummy says

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! My favorite thing in the world is candy, so these healthy twists are amazing to see. If I had to choose just ONE candy bar? I’d have to say Reeses. But I love anything peanut buttery, minty, sour, fruity…see. I have a problem!

  7. Monique says

    We don’t celebrate Halloween over here in the Netherlands unfortunately, so I have no favorite Halloween candy!

    But oh, I love these Snickers and Twix bars! I made them myself some time before but the problem I come across often is the chocolate “sauce” is too thick. How do you deal with that?

  8. Amber @ Slim Pickin's Kitchen says

    Your healthy butterfinger recipes are the! So sorry I haven’t been around as much as I used to be BTW. I now have a 13 month old who keeps me insanely busy! I barely have time to breathe, but I love him fiercely!
