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.
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.
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.
