“This homemade candy corn recipe produces delicious candy corn look-alikes that liven up any Halloween party. The taste and texture of these candies is different from standard candy corn–they are much softer than waxy store-bought candy corn, and have a sweet vanilla-marshmallow taste. This is not a difficult recipe, but it is time-consuming because the candy corn kernels must be cut out individually.” -Elizabeth LaBau, Guide to Candy
