How Sweet It Is

Step up your Halloween candy game with whiskey chocolates


Don't get us wrong. We love a fun-size Mars Bar as much as the next sugar-high child in a Spongebob costume, but it may be time to pull out the grown-up snacks for your Halloween cocktail fete this year.

Twice the Vice
Twice the Vice injects its sweets with bonafide booze for single-serving melt-in-your mouth cocktails. The manliest choice? The Single Malt Collection, with Macallan 12 Year, Glenlivet 15 Year, and Lagavulin 16 Year truffles — cigars not included.
$28 here

Keep the party packs of mini Snickers in your fridge for munchie attacks, and whip out Sugarfina's refined candies for your grown-up get-togethers. The Cocktail Hour series brings in the flavor of your favorite tipple — Absinthe and Single Malt Scotch cordials, Hard Cider Pints, Champagne Gummy Bears — sans booze, so you don't have to count servings between glasses of water.
$15 here

With as many brands and varieties of chocolate out there as "Call Me Maybe" mashups, how do you tell your Valrhona Gran Couva Single Origin 64% from a chili-infused Oaxacan blend from Vosges? Check ChocoScore, your new Wine Spectator of the chocolate world, profiling every kind of cacao — plus ratings and food/drink pairings, so you know what goes best with Highlands versus Islay, of course.
