If you’ve been a reader of my past food posts, such as this recipe post for vegan chocolate chia pudding, you know I don’t have a big sweet tooth. Usually, I don’t crave candy but when there is a stocked candy bowl near me, it beckons me with its sugary, siren call and I can’t resist eating a piece or two (or twelve) of something chocolate.

I’m not alone, according to the National Confectioners Association, chocolate treats are the clear winner in the preferred Halloween candy haul. (Candy corn comes in second, ew.)

Since I’m not one of the 75% of U.S. households that plan to hand out candy tonight, I thought I’d share these Halloween treats instead:

However you choose to celebrate it, have a safe and happy Halloween! (And, don’t forget to brush your teeth after eating your sugary treats!)
