They may make gourmet food for a living, but that doesn't mean chefs don't have a sweet spot for Halloween candy.

So what treats are Valley chefs planning to pass out for this Hallow's Eve assemblage of ghosts and goblins? Whether they're the same ones they enjoyed as kids or hard-to-find favorites, one thing's for sure -- they're full size, (not "fun size") and bring back some fond memories.

Here are some of their favorites.

I will be handing out Jolly Ranchers and Reese's. These are my favorite candies from my childhood, and I remember how happy I was when I received Jolly Ranchers. No kid wants to see Good & Plenty or black licorice in their trick-or-treat bag when they get home.

Snickers and Heath bars and a ton of other sugary treats. Snickers and Heath bars remind me of my childhood growing up in California, munching on the beach.

Not a lot of trick-or-treaters in my neighborhood (and I'm usually at work anyways), but I would definitely give out full-size 5th Avenue bars. Best candy bar ever made. And I don't think skimping on children's candy is the place to save money.
