Homemade Candy Corn
For those who enjoy making something festive, cute, and edible, let us introduce you to our Homemade Candy Corn recipe. Candy corn is simply a cooked sugar flavored with nonfat milk powder and clear vanilla extract. It’s this milky sweet vanilla flavor paired with a soft but almost grainy texture that makes this seasonal candy taste like candy corn.To make it at home, cook a simple sugar solution to 230°F before adding the flavorings and powdered milk. This allows the candy to take on a soft, taffy texture that’s easy to cut into the characteristic triangle shape. Then, separate the candy into 3 sections and color with gel food colorings. Mold it into a rope of parallel orange, yellow, and white stripes before stretching and slicing it into simple triangles. After a full day on the counter, the outside of the candy will firm up and reach the proper texture.Surprisingly easy to make, our Homemade Candy Corn is both simple and tasty. Give it a try, and you’ll see just how fun this fall candy is to make for yourself.
