The Luxury Guide to Over-the-top Halloween Candy

When Hershey bars or Reese's just won't do—although we still love them.

As a kid, we all knew the best houses to stop by on Halloween. You know the ones, the houses that were decked out with over-the-top decorations, flashing lights, and loads upon loads of the best candy. I'm not talking the suckers that you get from the doctor's office or the fruit-flavored tootsie rolls—although they are pretty good. I mean the full-size, even super-sized chocolate candy bars. These houses would draw the crowds, and envy, of their closest neighbors.

So if you find yourself getting more excited for Halloween than any other holiday, it's time to step up your candy-slinging game. Thankfully, there are a number of luxury chocolatiers and candy makers that take sweets as seriously as you, and they offer a selection of some of the most luxe (and gory) options around. 

Whether you decide to hand these out to the kids with the best costumes, reserve them for your own children, or simply hide them from everyone and eat them yourself, these are the high-end candies you need to get this Halloween.
