Chocolate is central to so many good things – especially chocolate candy. It’s what motivates people to turn all your favorite childhood memories into “sexy” costumes on Halloween, and why we claim that our diet will “definitely” start after the holidays. Now, you could just stuff your face with those fun-size Kit-Kats (which everyone knows have fewer calories, duh) or you could up your game with these six candy recipes for making your chocolate candy faves-only better.

Chocolate, caramel, nougat, peanuts, hell yeah. Nothing wrong with a classic, but making it homemade is even better. Just layer everything out in a baking pan, chill and eat every single one without sharing. It’s not that hard. AND THIS ONE HAS MARSHMALLOW FLUFF.

Life tip: anyone who says “I don’t like chocolate and peanut butter” is not someone worth your time. Just…no. Especially when recipes like this exist. Stop right now and go make them. Seriously. This list will be here when you get back.

Butterfingers are…sort of mysterious. What is that taste? Is it…butter? Whatever, it’s delicious. And it’s even better when you make it yourself. These ones are soft and kind of chewy instead of the original crunchy, but trust me, you’ll be hoarding these in no time.

Mmmmm, come on, you know you love these. And this recipe for making them at home is super easy and comes out tasting almost just like the ones you’d buy in the store. But they look way fancier and impressive.
5. Homemade Twix Bars

Candy + cookie in the same treat is always right. I mean, please, it’s shortbread and chocolate and caramel. Yeah, now you want one. These will go beyond everything you’ve ever known about Twix. There’s a little more work in these since you have to make the cookies before, but trust me, it’s worth it.
