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.
There is no shortage of candy corn inspired crafts either. I even posted one of my own last year, a Candy Corn themed favor bag, tutorial here.
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…
Everything looks so good! Love that wreath! But here’s a healthier version: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/10/28/vegan-candy-corn/
Okay, Ivy, that is absolutely a good reason for making your own!
Candy corn reminds me of my dad. He wasn’t much of a sweets guy, but he LOVED candy corn. He always had a secret stash this time of year. I can remember a few years before he died my stepmom was exasperated at him because he was eating this stuff! She couldn’t stomach the stuff LOL!
Love candy corn! I love your project with it, too. 😉
your project is wickedly wonderful. Thank you for sharing with us today.
