• Candy Corn

    Candy Corn is a favorite fall treat and is often hard to find during other times of the year. Here's a simply, do it yourself recipe for making your own (Flavorful!) candy corn.

    Candy Corn is a staple at halloween- here's how to make your own any time of year!You'll Need: 1 C sugar
    2/3 C white corn syrup
    1/3 C butter

    Combine in pan, bring to boil stirring CONSTANTLY. Turn heat low and boil
    5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and add:

    1 tsp vanilla
    several drops food coloring (optional)

    Meanwhile, combine:

    2 1/2 C powdered sugar
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/3 C powdered milk

    Add all at once to mixture in pan. Stir until cool enough to handle. Knead until stiff enough to hold
    its shape. Shape into triangles, or any shape desired.

    If you want 3 different colors, divide the syrup mixture into evenly 3 different bowls and then add the coloring, divide the powdered sugar/salt/milk mixture evenly into the three bowls of colored hot syrup. You'll need a helper, it can harden quickly.

    A note about the ingredients, corn syrup is used in many recipes to prevent the other sugars from crystallizing, while you can substitute using homemade "corn" syrup, the texture may be slightly different .

      Your recipe looks wonderful. I am guessing if I wanted different flavored candy corn. I would add what ever flavor say root beer and make them brown. Maybe vanilla for the white and root beer for brown and a yellow stripe. Like a root beer float flavor. Do you think that would work ok? Thanks for the recipe.
