WHAT IT IS: Gourmet Halloween chocolate and treats.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: Made of the best ingredients, this is not kid stuff—unless your kid has a good palate.
WHY WE LOVE IT: It’s spooktacular!
WHERE TO BUY IT:  See individual listings.

.Plan Now For The Best Halloween Candy

CAPSULE REPORT: As you might imagine, the NIBBLE staff does not settle for miniature candy bars. We eat the best candy and chocolate year-round, so why have less on Halloween?

If you feel deserving of the best Halloween candy, here are our recommendations for the best chocolate, brownies and chocolate caramel apples. In a separate article, we have more treats: our perennial Halloween favorites.

1. Halloween Coffin Assortment:
Burdick Chocolates

Halloween chocolate, including three delightful spooks and two half moons, are presented in a tongue-in-cheek black coffin box with a ribbon announcing “chocolate to die for.” For fall flavor, the moon-shaped bonbons have a calvados (apple brandy) ganache interior. Read our review of Burdick Chocolate, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

2. Spooktacular Chocolate Ganache
Ghosts: Burdick Chocolates

Five chocolate ghosts will disappear from their box like magic—that’s how good they are. The same ghosts as shown in the coffin, each is hand-draped in a sheet of white chocolate that covers Burdick’s heart-meltingly good chocolate ganache. The box is tied in an orange and black ribbon that says “Boo!” The ghosts can be used as individual table favors, and are sold individually wrapped in cello bags as well.

These are just two of our Halloween favorites. See more Halloween chocolate on Page 3, plus other treats in the rest of the review. Start with the article index below.

THE NIBBLE does not sell the foods we review
or receive fees from manufacturers for recommending them.

Our recommendations are based purely on our opinion, after tasting thousands of products each year, that they represent the best in their respective categories.
