How much Halloween candy can you possibly keep on the table and have the willpower to not eat it all in 3 days?
I’m not a fan of sugary candy so I had to figure out a way to get rid of all those Jolly Ranchers, Starbursts, and Life Savers. Why not have an adult Halloween Candy Leftover Party.
So I called my friends and they were eager to trade candy with me and share a bottle of wine.
I had a bottle of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon and a Moscato d’Asti, and with the low alcohol it was a nice afternoon drinking wine. We had a great lunch and for dessert we traded our candy and sipped the wine while reminiscing about our wildest trick or treating days.
The sweet wine and candy was a bit of a sugar overload for us but we enjoyed our dark chocolates with the Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.
For those of you who really love sweets try an “ice wine” which I must admit is quite sweet though it is great with the sweet Jolly Ranchers and Starbursts.
I hope you had a safe and fun Halloween and did not gain too many extra pounds from all the candy!!!!
