You know the trick-or-treat menu well: Kit Kats, Snickers, Reese’s, Tootsie Rolls. If your neighborhood skews older, the occasional pack of Good ‘N Plenty or Mike & Ikes. There are other, more sophisticated options.

Diane Holland, owner and chocolatier at 2014 Best of Westchester-Winning Blue Tulip Chocolates in Rye (a stone’s throw from our office), dropped by with a few of her hand-made (hand-sculpted, hand-painted, etc.) Halloween and fall-themed chocolates. Let’s just say they are too nice to hand out to 7-year-old strangers.
