Welcome to Fall and to these delicious Candy Corn Candy Melts!
The leaves have just started changing and I am still cranking up my pool heater to eat up the last days of warm weather.
But fall is beckoning and my kids are talking about Halloween. So in honor of this season and my love for candy corn I made some candy corn candy melts.
They are fun for gift giving to neighbors, co-workers, teachers, and friends. Click here to see the video.
Supplies for the Candy Corn Candy Melts:
- Wilton Limited Edition Candy Corn Melts
- Wilton Nesting Candy Corn Cookie Cutters
- Small bags
- Wilton sprinkling sugars orange, white and yellow.
- Silicone mat (waxed paper might work too) and cookie sheet
- Wilton disposable decorators bag
- Halloween themed sprinkles (optional)
1. Melt your candy
Follow the package instructions to melt in your microwave. Once melted, pour into a disposable decorator’s bag.
2. Set your silicone mat or waxed paper on top of your cookie sheet.
Set your smallest candy corn cookie cutter on top of that. Snip the end of the piping bag.
3. Squeeze your candy corn melt into the cookie cutter.
Shake the cookie sheet to even out the surface of the candy.
Don’t worry about any little bit leaking through the sides – you can break those off after they are set.
4. Add the sprinkles
While the candy melts are still soft, add orange, white and yellow sugar sprinkles, one color at a time, to each part of the candy corn.
Optional: Instead of the traditional colors of sprinkles you can also get the limited edition ghost sprinkle candies they are super cute.
5. Pop them in the fridge
Allow 5 or 10 minutes for them to set.
6. Remove them from the mold
Carefully remove them from the candy corn cookie cutter pushing them from front to back so that the candy corn melt will pop out from the back.
Break off any excess melts on the sides.
7. Pop it in an bag
And tie some ribbon around the top.
Pass them out at work, school, your neighborhood, etc.
