Best Halloween Chocolate

Cute little corn-shaped sugar balls, and witch-shaped chocolates, oh my!
Halloween Best Chocolate - Teacher Ink
Please consider the alternatives:

Dark chocolate with less sugar is a start.  Halloween Candy, Halloween Chocolate Gift , Happy Halloween Solid Gourmet Dark Chocolate 8" (14 OZ) Big Witch Halloween Gift, Wrapped with Orange & Black Ribbon Ready for the Witching Hour!

If you absolutely must go eyeballs and pumpkins, at least go dark.  It's a bit healthier!  Dove Halloween Dark Chocolate Pumpkins and Milk Chocolate Eyeballs (Limited Edition Pack of 2)

Consider swapping the cheap eyeballs for gourmet organic dark chocolate.  Your kids will develop a taste for it, and they'll thank you someday...yes, SOME day...

Here are some of the best gourmet chocolates:

Endangered Species Wolf, Natural Dark Chocolate (72%) with Cranberries & Almonds, 3-Ounce Bars (Pack of 12)

 Equal Exchange Organic Very Dark Chocolate Bars, 3.5-Ounces (Pack of 12)

Both have a touch of chocolate liquor, and are amazingly rich--and not overly sweet.

Theo Classics 85% Dark Chocolate, 3-Ounce (Pack of 6)

And if you happen to live in New York City, Kee's Chocolates are some of the best anywhere.  I passed by this tiny hole-in-the-wall store front dozens of times before I noticed it.

Brooklynites swear by Mast Brothers in Williamsburg.

Some more wonders:

Pacari Ecuadorian Organic Chocolate Raw 70%, 1.76-Ounce (Pack of 5)  

Amano Chuao Chocolate Bar  

Chocolat Bonnat Chuao 75% Dark Chocolate Bar 

There's no doubt that a little dark chocolate, in moderation, is very, very good for body and soul.  It also protects you from raiding the candy bin for sugary no-nos, for weeks after Halloween is over.  

Have a spooky and fun Halloween!
