Halloween Candy Making


A variety of Candy

The Luxe at Creekside Blog invites you to try something different this year: making your own Halloween candy. If you haven’t tried this before you are missing out on a lot of fun! Store-bought candy is so expensive, so why not save some money and make your own? We are sharing a few homemade candy recipes in today’s post that you can easily make at your apartment.


Tootsie Rolls

It’s much more satisfying to make, eat, and give away these candies than it is to buy them at the store. You’ll need honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, unsalted butter, powdered sugar, salt, and non-fat dry milk powder. Wrap them up in wax paper for a treat infinitely better than the old store-bought candies sitting in your pantry.


Twix Bars

You can make these no-bake homemade Twix bars with just four ingredients! The author says anyone can make these, so follow their instructions and tips for getting the perfect caramel consistency of your graham cracker. This soft, chewy candy bar will stun anyone you share it with.


Kit Kat Bars

If you want a candy you can snack on guilt-free, try this paleo recipe made with “wholesome ingredients [that] satisfy [your] craving.” You’ll make these Kit Kats with shortbread cookies, a gooey caramel sauce, and dark chocolate for a crispy, chewy candy you’ll never want to take a break from.


Peanut Butter Cups

The concept of making a peanut butter cup is so simple, you’ve probably seen people do it before and wanted to try it on your own! Now is your chance. While you can definitely try it with chocolate and peanut butter and see how it turns out, go the extra mile and follow this recipe step by step.


Caramel Apple Suckers

If you’ve never made lollipops, now is a good time to try it! With sugar, water, corn syrup, green apple candy flavoring, citric acid, food coloring, and caramel bits, this sticky, hard candy will be as satisfying to make as it is to eat.
