Halloween is the one time of year when we're all allowed to eat candy with the reckless abandon of a 10-year-old. But as much fun as it is to plow through bowls of pre-packaged goodies, what if we told you there's a more delicious option?

Two words: homemade candy. This year, why not spend the time you would have spent trick-or-treating making a batch of homemade tootsie rolls or almond joys instead? Don't worry — it's a lot easier than you think. And, the best part of all: You don't even need to wear a costume to get your hands on these treats.
