I LOVE candy! Or at least I used to. My sister likes to remind me that I could hear candy being unwrapped a mile away and come running. However, now I don't like what's in candy, which is why I've made my own the past few years. That's right....my own!
Last year I made healthier alternatives to my favorite treats: Peanut butter cups, peppermint patties, mounds... They were all devoured at my Halloween bash (by both vegans, vegetarians and carnivores alike). Although these are still treats, they're made with organic and healthy ingredients.
Below are my recipes for peanut butter cups and mounds. They're all vegan and gluten free! (Not that you or your ghoulish guests will notice!)
