The Best-Ever DIY Halloween Candies

Halloween is a candy-packed holiday. On Halloween itself, an average American will consume approximately 7,000 calories in candy alone. It’s therefore no surprise that this is the time of year where the most candy is sold in the country, with everybody stocking up on candy cornchocolates, and gummies to eat themselves and hand out to trick-or treaters on the spooky day. But this year, rather than spending far too much money on candy at the store, turn your weekend into a Halloween candy DIY activity, and make it all yourself!
