For the upcoming Halloween issue of the Serious Eats digital magazine, Robyn used candy corn and chocolate Twizzlers to make the cover. (We'll be snacking on candy corn for a while; there's about five pounds of the stuff in that tray.)

Robyn's friend Diana helped position some of the Twizzler bits. They did not want to cooperate.
