Candy Corn "Corn"
Neighbors, teachers, and friends will appreciate and savor this Halloween sweet treat! Liz teaches us how to make "Candy Corn 'Corn'" and how to package the popcorn to make it look it's best.
This festive Halloween sweet treat is a great gift for neighbors, teachers, and friends! Learn how to make this sweet "Candy Corn 'Corn'"!
These would make such an awesome gift for Halloween! Who would you send these Candy Corn “Corn” gifts to?
These Candy Corn “Corn” packages would be perfect for neighbors, teachers, friends or to give away as a party favor if you’re planning a Halloween party. There are even some free printables to go along with gifting these treats.
We noticed that these look great packaged in mason jars and cellophane treat bags! What are some other ways could moms package these? What supplies would they need to do so?
I think the Candy Corn “Corn” looks best in a cellophane bag tied with ribbon or bakers twine. But I think it would also look cute in a clear plastic cup. There are all sizes of plastic cups that would be perfect for any size portion you were looking for. Especially if you were to make this for a party. Small cups would be great for kid size snacking!
How long does it take you to make these from start to finish? Which part of the process do you think is the longest, and which do you think is the most fun?
Candy Corn “Corn” packages take about an hour and a half to make. That includes the hour it takes for the candy to set back up in order to package it. The actual making of the Candy Corn “Corn”, popping the popcorn and combining it with the candy melts, takes about 30 minutes. My most favorite part though, is putting the packages together. Making sure to get the perfect amount of each color in the bag!
These look so tasty! Is the Candy Corn “Corn” very sweet?
The vanilla flavor of the melting candies make the Candy Corn “Corn” sweet. If you start with salty popcorn, it will be sweet and salty. A perfect combo! And then I added mini m&m’s to the mix for a burst of chocolatey goodness
Did you get your kids involved in making these sweet treats? If kids wanted to help, which step do you think is easiest or most fun for them to help with?
I did not get my kids involved in the process for this project. Unless you count the last step, eating the popcorn! But this is a great treat to have the kids help in the kitchen. Mom & dad would have to help with the melting of the candy coating because it can be a little hot. But the kids would love to help mix everything together and help with putting packages together.
