Candy is the theme of the month! For Halloween, you can always buy hard sweets and chocolate-covered treats from the supermarket but we say, make this Halloween more personal and fun by making some delicious homemade desserts that are either inspired by your favorite candy or recreating your favorite version at home.  

We think the yema and the pastillas are two of the easiest candies you can make. However, if you're looking for something else to make, we have a few genius ideas and recipes that can make any Trick or Treat more fun! Here are some inspired candy ideas to try and make at home:

This makes lollipops a fun and inexpensive way to make a sweet impression on anyone who receives one.
