Halloween Trivia Challenge: Candy, Candy, Candy!

Thanksgiving has turkey. For Halloween, it's candy. All kinds of candy treats -- from chocolate kisses to gold-and-yellow candy corn.

Candy Corn Monster Mouths

Candy corn plus peanut butter plus apples equals a Monster Mouth, the wickedly sweet Halloween (or anytime) treat that's scarily good for you. Apple slices (of any variety you and your kids like) make gaping mouths, and a layer of peanut butter holds the candy corn "teeth" in place. Use Granny Smith apples for a sweet-tart flavor, or Gala for a mellower monster.

Easy Candy Corn Cupcakes: No Trick Treats!

We love getting into the holiday spirit; we just don't always have the time. And frankly, while we like carving jack-o'-lanterns and dipping caramel apples, we're not convinced that everything we make has to scream Halloween (yeah, put away those rubber bloody fingers). That's why we think these easy Candy Corn Cupcakes from The Comfort of Cooking are to die for! There are no hidden time-sucking steps here.

New Chocolate Candy Beats the Heat

M&Ms may need a new slogan. "Melts in your mouth, not in your hands" could become old news soon, as Cadbury introduces a "temperature-tolerant chocolate," the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports, for its new candy, Dairy Milk. The chocolate in the new bars can apparently sit out in really hot temperatures -- 104-degrees -- for three-plus hours before it losing its solid state. Cadbury, the British brand, which bought by Kraft a couple years ago, has upped the melting point of regular chocolate (93 degrees).
