  1. Making your own candy corn is a great way to get creative with the ingredients you have on hand. You can also customize this recipe by adding some of your favorite flavors, like peppermint extract or cinnamon.

    Did you know that commercial candy corn is made with bug guts, quite literally? Candy corn, Junior Mints, Red Hots, Lemonhead, and Boston Baked Beans are glazed with lac bug secretions. It takes about 100,000 bugs to produce about 1 pound of shellac flakes, which are combined with alcohol to make confectioner’s glaze.

  2. This is a great recipe for those who love the taste of candy corn. I would recommend using natural ingredients, such as honey and peanut butter, to give it more flavor.
