Candy Corn, Reinvented

Candy Corn seems to be somewhat polarizing - people either love it or hate it.  Oh, I'm sure there are some who are ambivalent about this classic Halloween treat, but I for one love it!  If you're in my camp, take a look at these recipes paying homage to the sugary sweet.

1 Candy Corn Chocolate Cake from Southern Living

2 Candy Corn Gelatin from Martha Stewart

3 Candy Corn Pudding Parfaits from Hershey's Kitchens

4 Candy Corn Sugar Cookies from Martha Stewart

5 Candy Corn Parfait by Food Network (slightly healthy...it's got fruit!)  ;)

6 Vegan Candy Corn by Urban Housewife

7 Trick-or-Tini from YumSugar (you may wish to give this a stir before drinking, but after presenting!)

I made the candy corn sugar cookies with the cocoa & used my cookie scoop. This produced 18 cookies, so I cut them in half and rolled those into balls. I think they came out too small and am wondering if the recipe is really for 36 cookies. Maybe 2 recipes will give you 36 decent sized cookies, but 1 made 36 teeny, bite sized cookies.

Anyways, it's a tasty recipe and can be made if your electricity is out. Some suggestions: Definitely let your butter sit out for about 1 hour. Stick the dough in the fridge while you clean up your few bowls & spoons.

I used Indian Corn and the new Caramel Candy Corn. They are both delicious, especially with the chocolate.

I can see how this recipe could easily be adapted to accommodate any festive candy of approximately the same size. Around Christmas, I believe there are some red, white, and green candy corn that might go nicely with the non-cocoa dough.

Happy Halloween!
