5 Ways to Eat Candy Corn This Halloween
Candy Corn Creations
You could pour your candy corn into one big bowl, but the local trick-or-treaters will appreciate these next-level treats featuring the quintessential Halloween candy — we guarantee it.
Candy Corn Cupcakes
Separate your vanilla cupcake batter into 2 bowls. Dye one section yellow and the other orange (or you can leave it white). Bake your cupcakes and let them cool. In a food processor or blender, grind up 1 cup of candy corn and 1/2 stick of butter until smooth. (This could take a while, depending on the type of candy corn.)
Once the candy corn and butter mixture is cool and smooth, mix it with 3 cups of powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Scoop your cupcakes out and fill them with the candy corn frosting. Then, smooth some vanilla buttercream on top.
Candy Corn-White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Trick-or-treaters love this. Before refrigerating your white chocolate peanut butter cups, add candy corn on top: super festive and weirdly delicious.
Candy Corn Doughnuts
You can make your own cake doughnuts, or buy them plain. It doesn't matter either way, since the magic lies in the glaze.
Prepare a glaze with 2 cups of confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup of milk and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Once the glaze is mixed, add 2 drops of yellow food coloring to the glaze and 1 drop of red. Swirl the colors around a bit, not mixing them in entirely, but mix until they look tie-dye.
Then, dip your doughnuts into the glaze and swirl them around to get that tie-dye effect. Top with candy corn and celebrate the goodness you have just created.
3-Ingredient Candy Corn Fudge
Melt 3 cups of white chocolate and mix with 3/4 of a can of condensed milk. Separate into 3 bowls and dye with food coloring. Layer each color on top of one another and top with candy corn. Refrigerate for an hour, cut into squares and serve!
Candy Corn "on the Cob"
This is the easiest snack food ever. All you have to do is make a small log of eggless cookie dough — or you can use a banana or marshmallow, or literally anything that you can stick candy corn into. Stick candy corn into your desired item until you have what looks like corn on the cob.
