DIY Halloween Candy: Chocolate-Covered Corn Flakes

Chocolate-Covered Corn Flakes

Credit Mr. Chocolate, Jacques Torres, with turning crispy cereal into a not-too-unhealthy candy-snack hybrid. He sells chocolate-covered corn flakes at his eponymous shops in New York and shared the recipe with F&W. Requiring just two ingredients and a microwave, the crunchy sweets would make an awesomely quick addition to a Halloween party. Follow the step-by-step guide in this new slideshow from Matthew Armendariz of mattbites.com: How to Make Chocolate Corn Flakes

F&W Eats

Doughnuts, Foie Gras and Celebrity Photo Bombs

Pumpkin Doughnut

Whether dining out at fantastic new restaurants or cooking at home with the season's best ingredients, the F&W team lives to eat and share (well, virtually). Here, highlights from editors' dining adventures on social media.

Alex Vallis got her hands on one of Doughnut Plant's pumpkin cake doughnuts with spiced pepitas. The verdict? "GOOD"

Kate Krader traveled to Charleston, SC for Cook It Raw where she ate April Bloomfield's 40-day aged rib-eye & oyster ice cream.

Feeling the first signs of a fall cold coming on, James Pomerantz forwent traditional remedies and instead self-medicated with a large dose of pork. He's all better now.

Ray Isle headed to The NoMad for shaved foie gras with grapes and buckwheat. Oh, and some tagliatelle with white truffle and butter.

Whatever it was Christina Grdovic ate at Marea and Charlie Bird, Michael Douglas and George Stephanopoulus wanted a bite.

Rogue Morimoto Black Obi Soba Ale

While this is true in some instances—doppelbock has its origins in sustaining monks through their fasts—there are plenty of dark beers that are refreshing and flavorful without being overbearing.

Ames Farm Honey's Single-Minded Beekeeper

Ames Farm Honey

If you gave Brian Fredericksen a spoonful of one of his varietal honeys, he could tell you what kind of flowers the bees were pollinating when they produced it, in what season and in what kind of weather. To most people, it would just taste delicious—as different from squeeze-bottle honey as an heirloom tomato in August is from a supermarket one in January. Read more >
