COOKING VIDEO: Candy Corn Cones For Halloween


Candy corn is great as a garnish during Halloween season.

  • Cupcakes: Use it as a cupcake topping. Create a circle of candy corn kernels around the rim of the cupcake. You can stand one kernel in the middle of the cupcake. Or create your own patterns. It’s a fun party activity or after-dinner dessert activity for kids.
  • Jack-O-Lantern Cake: Make a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and filling, and cover the sides with a mixture of candy corn and chopped nuts (if it’s a loaf cake, cover the top). Use the nuts to cover most of the cake and press in candy corn at intervals. You can also use candy corn to make the eyes, nose and mouth of the Jack-O-Lantern, on the top of the cake.
  • Sundae: We love a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with hot chocolate sauce and sprinkled with candy corn.
    Here’s a Paula Deen recipe that decorates ice cream cones with candy corn. Ms. Deen uses them as place card holders.

    But after dinner, you can turn the cones right side up and add vanilla ice cream or pudding for dessert.

    Vanilla ice cream or pudding pairs best with the sweet candy corn.
