Pairing candy with wine

Candy corn, candy apples, and candy bars; oh my

With October comes that wonderfully sweet American holiday known as Halloween. Or as I like to call it: My nieces’ annual sugar induced meltdown. Chocolate, and stress from hyper, screaming children pair exceptionally well with wine. So this Halloween, whether you want an excuse for drinking wine while you have your once a year gorge on candy, or you need wine to combat the trials of dealing with hyper-active children (and some adults), use the chart below to get the most out of your experience.

The notes for each pairing can also be used for regular desserts as well, or at the least offer a starting point. So this year treat yourself to a glass (or three) of wine while you have the one guilt free gorge on candy we allow ourselves each year! Let me know if there are any pairings you swear by in the comments, and Happy Halloween!
