Trick your taste buds with treats that won’t cause a sugar rush.

On Halloween, it’s easy to get caught up in trick-or-treating and give in to the temptation of your favorite candy bar, but you don’t need to jump on a sugar-filled roller coaster ride. Although a few pieces on Halloween night are probably well deserved, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite recipes that are so good it’s scary.
