Crazy Over Candy Corn!

By: Amy Atlas, in Kids, Recipes

We are knee-deep in Halloween projects {I’ll show you a peek this week}, and there is candy corn all over the AAE office!  Like many, candy corn evokes so many childhood memories for me.  I remember my Grandma used to have small bowls of candy corn around her house on Halloween and I would grab as many as I could before anyone would catch me.  Every time I eat a candy corn, that sugary taste still reminds me of those days.  Since then, candy corn has come a long way.  We’ve seen it transform into many different types of desserts.  The bright color palette lends itself to some pretty dessert designs.  This candy corn round-up shows some of my favorites.
