Skip The Store – Make Your Own Candy This Year!

Homemade peanut butter cups

Here’s something we can all relate to this time of year — you’re walking down the candy aisle at the store and you start to think, “What kinds you should I get” and, “When did candy get so expensive?” These are common thoughts that pop up around Halloween. Instead of dealing with the candy aisle concerns, try making your own this year! Here are our five favorite candy recipes for you to try.

The Classics

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Twix are both staples in a Halloween candy bag. All you need to make homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is smooth peanut butter, milk chocolate chips, and candy corn. Candy corn might sound strange, but it makes this recipe even more delicious.

Homemade Twix bars are super fun to make. Caramel candies, shortbread cookies, and milk chocolate chips are all tasty on their own, but when you combine them yourself they taste even better.

Making your own homemade versions of these classics makes them even yummier.

Sour Candy

It’s not really Halloween if you don’t have candy that makes your lips pucker from the sourness of it. Making sour candy at home is much easier than you’d expect. These homemade sour watermelon fruit chews taste as delightful as the ingredients sound. With ingredients like honey, lemon, and watermelon juice, you might not want to buy your own sour candy ever again.
