Every year, if you ask my children what their favorite part of Halloween is, the resounding answer will be, CANDY!! Yes, after the costumes, face painting and decorating is done, it is the candy that we delight in. And not just the little ones. I have been known to nibble a bite or two (or three) from their hefty bag of treats. Truth be told, they never get half of it and not because their parents are eating it. I simply can not stomach the thought of all the artificial color, chemical and sugared concoctions traveling through their systems. So, I've been doing a little candy research and have complied a list of my favorite treats to offer for a healthier alternative.
