Corny fun for Halloween

Ubiquitous. Isn’t that what candy corn is to Halloween.
While October 30th is proclaimed as National Candy Corn Day.
In honor of the seasonal sweet kernel — a few recipes.
Candy Corn Popcorn Balls
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 10 1/2 ounces mini-marshmallows
  • 3 ounces gelatin ( or flavored jello)
  • 12 cups pop corn
  • 1 cup candy corn
Melt butter, marshmallows, stir in gelatin.  Pour mixture over popcorn, add the candy corn and mix until well coated. Shape into 15 balls with buttered hands. ( yep buttery hands )
Wrap each ball in plastic wrap–until your goblins gobble gobble.
Candy Corn Cordial
A festive sweet treat requiring a little effort to soak the candy corn or otherwise infuse the vodka.
