Homemade Halloween treats great alternative as candy prices spike

Halloween is right around the corner. Which means it's time to stock up on candy, but just like most items recently, the cost has gone up.
According to Investopedia, candy is up 10.9% along with an increase in the price of cookies, pumpkins, and beer which is even more reason to turn to making treats at home
Amy Zitter of Dipped From A to Z in Westport creates candy baskets for all kinds of occasions.
She has some spooky fun treats you can make with the kids with a price tag that won't frighten.
Zitter offers chocolate dipping kits with items like Oreos, pretzel rods, gummies and Halloween toppers.
Zitter says for those looking for a healthier snack, dipping fruit in chocolate and adding sprinkles is also an option.
