It’s true, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day… I’m not sure why we have National “Days” for everything under the sun, but there it is. And, I admit it, I have a weakness for this stuff.
Candy corn is a sweet confection, made to look like dried corn kernels. It’s considered a “mellow cream,” a type of candy made from corn syrup and sugar that has a marshmallow-like flavor. Although candy corn tastes rich, it’s actually fat-free. But keep in mind, that does not mean calorie free! And if you are like me, one handful is never enough…
There are any number of Candy Corn inspired recipes out there, such as Candy Corn Cheesecake:
Candy Corn truffles (which look pretty darned tasty):
There are even recipes online for making your own Candy Corn, though I’m not sure why you would bother when Brach’s does such a wonderful job of it for you.
I might have to make one of these to celebrate next October 30th:
I’m sure you’re hungry by now so go treat yourself to some Candy Corn in honor of Natioanl Candy Corn Day, October 30, 2012…
