While traditional M&Ms always work in the recipe, with so many fun Halloween and Fall M&Ms on store shelves, feel free to get creative and pick whatever M&Ms strike your fancy!
Halloween M&M varieties vary from year to year, and even from store to store. Stores like Walmart and Target often have exclusive flavors, so you are likely to find different kinds at different stores.
