I LOVE Candy Corn!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!! I wish they made scented candles and air fresheners out of that smell! So I was able to attend a 8 week farmers market event in my small town in Nebraska, and I looked on the internet for candy corn recipes. I found 3 I liked, some were good,others not so much, so I tweaked all three and liked this. These sold extremely well and were extremely cute for Fall. I hope your family enjoys these as much as mine and my former customers. Enjoy
