The food has always been one of my favorite parts of Halloween, particularly all the different types of candy and candy-like desserts. There are just so many fantastic options out there, and they really make the holiday special. But, why limit it just to the food itself?
From spending some time digging around on Etsy I've found many different examples of how fantastic Halloween candy looks when used in other applications – particularly jewelry. Now, to be clear, I'm not talking about actual candy here. Instead, I'm talking about handmade creations sold on Etsy that look like miniature versions of the candy that we all know and love. Okay, I know that pumpkins aren't candy – but they do remind me of the mallowcreme pumpkins, so they count.
This type of jewelry is a fantastic way to get into the spirit of the season, and it lets you have some fun without having adding onto your waistline. Plus, much of the jewelry is subtle enough that you could wear it all year round if you were so inclined. My favorite from this list is the monster ice cream necklace, but I'm betting that you have a different favorite.

As a symbol of fall and of Halloween, these cute caramel apples would work well throughout the fall and well into winter.

Here's a pumpkin pie slice you can hang around your neck – just don't try to eat it. One of my favorites on this list!

I love these very surprised pumpkins, they also have that homemade look, so everyone would wonder where you got them from.

With these earrings, the fact that the peanut butter cups are bitten into is a good thing. They wouldn't be as recognizable if they were whole.
