Halloween is quite literally fueled by candy. Trick-or-treaters spend the night trekking from door-to-door, collecting a variety of candies that are sure to litter your pantry for months on end. For a holiday that so centrally focuses on candy, it could be difficult to determine one signature holiday treat. But when it comes to October 31, it’s plain and simple—candy corn is the most iconic candy of Halloween.The elongated pyramidical stripes of yellow, orange, and white sugar are undeniably a symbol of the spooky season (and yes, you can even make your own candies at home). This Halloween treat may be iconic, but most of us can only enjoy a few pieces before the artificial sugar rush becomes overwhelming. Luckily, we have a solution: Candy Corn Sugar Cookies. These decorated cookies channel the festive spirit of candy corn without packing such an intense sugar punch. You can make these cookies as big or as small as you’d like; miniature candy corn cookies look adorable presented in a bowl like the real candies, while slightly larger cookies make a perfect treat for adults and kids alike. If you want to bring even more festive flair to the cookies, add eyes and a smile to transform each candy corn into a cute character. While these cookies certainly stand on their own, we recommend pairing our Candy Corn Sugar Cookies with a selection of other decorated treats—jack-o’ lanterns or friendly ghosts, anybody?—for the ultimate Halloween dessert spread.
