Ah, Halloween… the one day a year that eating candy is actually encouraged. From entire supermarket aisles to office reception desks, the sweet stuff is everywhere. Take one look at the labels, however, and you’re sure to find some pretty spooky ingredients. We searched some of our favorite food blogs for healthier, homemade versions of some of the most popular Halloween candies.

Remember that most of the candies on this list aren’t exactly healthy (they are sweets, after all), but these recipes — from Snickers bars to Twizzlers — are better for you than the store-bought versions since most are free of preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial dyes.

Plus, dark chocolate is in fact good for us with all those antioxidant flavonoids (lottery!). Get your apron, mixing bowls, and witch hat ready. We’re about to take Halloween by storm.
