Making this candy corn is almost like magic. You won't believe how easy it is, and your trick-or-treaters will be impressed!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup powdered milk
  • red and yellow food coloring

Preparation

  1. Combine sugar, butter and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add vanilla; set aside. Combine powdered sugar, salt and powdered milk; stir into sugar mixture. Let stand about 20 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Divide dough into 3 equal parts and place in bowls. Wearing plastic gloves, knead desired amount of yellow food coloring into one bowl of dough; knead desired amount of yellow and read into the second bowl to create orange. Leave remaining bowl uncolored. Roll each portion of dough into a long, thin rope of equal lengths. Arrange dough ropes side-by-side; press seams together using a rolling pin. Cut into triangles with a sharp knife; shape edges to resemble corn kernels. Set aside until firm; store in an airtight container.
