Today's favorites (Snickers, Kit Kats, Twix etc.) are a chemical cocktail of synthetics, toxic dyes, hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrups. We're going to go trick-or-treating on Friday, but at home I'm going to have some of these better choices that are just as yummy.
I included as many organic, soy-free, GMO free, all natural recipes as possible (and healthier store bought options if they are available). Here's to a less scary Halloween for you and your family!
