Now you do have that special Halloween candy recipe you've been searching for, just take a look at this page to find the most popular homemade candies for this Fall holiday.

I found this recipe at JustATaste.com and it looks easy and delish! To make this Halloween treat candy idea you will need:

  • bittersweet chocolate
  • bite size pieces of Halloween candies - gather all your favorites
  • sugar eyeball candies
  • nuts
  • pretzels
  • any candy or snack you like
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • double boiler

Line your baking sheet with the parchment paper

Break up your halloween candies into small bits

Melt your bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler or in a bowl using your microwave oven - keep stirring the chocolate until it is smooth.

Pour the smooth chocolate onto the parchment paper and spread it so you have a nice, even layer.

Sprinkle your chopped up Halloween candies on top of the melted bittersweet chocolate

Put it in the refrigerator for about a half hour (30 minutes) You want the chocolate to be completely hardened before you take it out of the frig.

When you take it out of the refrigerator just slide the chocolate onto a cutting board.

Cut it into pieces - they can be randomly shaped, they look a little bit more Halloween like that.

That's it...see how easy it is to make your own Halloween candy using easy recipes?

Candy Cookie Witch Hats - Make Your Own Halloween Treats

To make these very cute, very easy Halloween candy witch hats you will need:

  • 12 chocolate sugar ice cream cones
  • 12 4-5-inch chocolate chocolate-chip cookies
  • 1 cup white frosting or icing
  • Purple food coloring to dye the icing purple
  • 1 pound bag of M & M’s
  • Icing piping bag (or use a plastic sandwich bag and cut the corner off to squeeze the icing out)
  • Piping decorator tip if you have one

And here's how to make them:

Stir the icing, add the purple food coloring and put it into your piping bag - add a decorating tip if you have one

If you like pour a spoonful of the M & M's into the cones

Pipe some icing around the edge of the ice cream cone - place a cookie on the piped edge - the icing will dry and act like glue to hold the cone/cookie in place

Set the cookie on a plate or cookie sheet so the cone is upright

Add more of your icing around the edge and decorate with some more M & M's

Repeat with each ice cream cone until you are done! These Halloween cookie/cone/candy treats are always a big hit.

DIY Halloween Candy Eyeball Recipe - No Bake

Candy eyeballs are another big hit at Halloween. These easy to make candies are just the right amount of sweet and scary combination. You can make these with your kids or surprise them with this treat on Halloween.

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter - regular or low-fat
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of butter, cut into pieces
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 cups of white chocolate morsels
  • 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • About 16 M&M's, assorted colors
  • Red food gel (or red food coloring)

Put the peanut butter, butter, sugars, and salt into a bowl and mix them with a beater until they are mixed thoroughly.

Roll them into 1 inch balls and put them on a cookie tray. Place the tray in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

While the balls are in the freezer melt your chocolate and oil. You can do this on your stove with a double boiler or in your microwave.

Remove the balls from the freezer. Stick one on a wood bbq skewer and dip it in the white melted chocolate to coat it. Set it back onto your cookie tray. Put an M & M right on the top in the center. When you are done put these balls back into the freezer for another 30 minutes.

Remove the balls, decorate them with the red gel to make the veins you see in the picture.

You can place the balls back in the freezer for another 20 or so minutes. Serve when you take them out.
