10 Adults-only Halloween candies you won’t want to share

Halloween is almost here, and it’s time to stock up on the gourmet candy of your dreams.

These are more than just candy — they’re art! That means you can totally justify having more than one… You’re a collector, after all. These dark chocolates are hand-painted to look like Victorian cameos, and the result is strikingly delicious. (Sugarfina, $3)

3. Ghost Lindor Truffles

The only thing scary about these truffles is how many of them you’ll probably eat in one sitting. Creamy milk chocolate with a white chocolate center makes these candies good enough to save for after the trick-or-treaters go home. (Lindt, $15)

4. Black Cat Mask Lollipop

Tucked away in an adorable crate, these autumn-hued, boozy chocolates look like they just fell off the hay truck. Unlike hay, these pack quite the punch and are filled with such adult-friendly flavors as Frangelico, Jim Beam and Cointreau. (Candy Warehouse, $10)

Eat them plain or in a steaming-hot mug of cocoa, but either way, these marshmallows are way too good for the kids. Bourbon-aged demerara sugar and Saigon cinnamon coat a succulent vanilla bean-goat’s milk puff. Who knew there was such a thing as a marshmallow too good for a s’more? (240 Sweet, $10)
