Sweet Treats: Candy Corn

As a child, I absolutely LOVED candy corn.  As an adult, I must admit that I’m still a fan of this corny treat.  And with over 35 million pounds of it produced each year, I’m not the only one!  Maybe we love it because its only available in the fall and it brings back happy Halloween memories… trick-or-treating all night hoping to fill your pillowcase with candy (yes, that’s right,  I said pillowcase!)  Over time, I came to realize that many people vehemently dislike candy corn.  They say it’s too sweet or too waxy.  Who knew a candy could be so polarizing?  Well whether you love it or hate it, I’m sure you’ll agree that these candy corn inspired goodies are a sweet treat!

  • Indulge in this candy corn cocktail after the kiddos are tucked in for the night.  Find the recipe here on Food Network.
  • Wow your guests with this fabulous cake!  I just love this design from The Cake Corner in Dallas.  The fondant mice are just too cute, not to mention the great detail work on the bag.  Sadly, The Cake Corner is not currently taking orders, but Carol has classes available for those of you interested in learning from a very talented woman.
  • Decorate with this adorable trick-or-treat banner that you can make yourself.  Find the directions here on Skip to my Lou.
