Whether you prefer chocolate truffles or gummy bears, black licorice or sticky caramel, these sugary treats hearken back to childhood trick-or-treating and birthday piñatas. We love incorporating store-bought candies into some of our favorite recipes, like this one for chocolate chip cookies from Christina Tosi, as well as this colorful cocktail that’s perfect for Halloween. We also enjoy making our own sweets, such as these chocolate truffles embellished with raspberries, roasted almonds and candied ginger. If you’re a candy connoisseur or simply have a hankering for sugar, Food & Wine’s guide to candy has a recipe for every occasion.

Pomegranate Mochi

Borrowing a technique from pastry chef Jennifer Yee, these chewy, fruity, jewel-toned mochi are prepared in the microwave with a mix of pomegranate juice and lime juice. We used a 3/4-inch round cutter to make them gumdrop size, but you can also cut the candies into squares (sharpen your knife!) or use another small cookie cutter. Slideshow: More Pomegranate Recipes
