One of my most favorite things about halloween is the CANDY CORN!! I always load up on bags of candy corn. I don’t know why I am addicted to those candies! Not only do I like to eat candy corn, I also love to decorate with candy corn. I think the colors just help me get into the fall spirit, and fall is my favorite season! I decided to whip up a quick treat for the kiddos to get us into the Halloween spirit, and these candy corn pretzel rods were a hit!
These really are an easy treat to make. I just buy these candy melts in the candy corn colors. You can find these at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, and Walmart. Walmart usually has a them in their holiday baking aisles. I just bought my pretzel rods from the grocery store.
You start by melting the yellow candy melts first. Just follow the package instructions for melting the candy and I find that a glass bowl works best for melting them. Another tip is if the candy melts look a little too thick, add a little (1/2 tsp) vegetable oil to the candy to help thin it out. You can add more than 1/2 tsp. but that will get you started.
Then dip/roll your pretzel rods in the yellow candy melts. Shake off any excess candy and then put them on parchment or wax paper on a tray. Stick them in the freezer or fridge for about 10 minutes and then start on the orange candy melts.
Do the same with the orange and white candy melts, making sure you chill them in between colors.
The kids loved them and they taste really yummy. They make great gifts for teachers, friends or neighbors too.
I love giving out gifts to our neighbors at the Holidays. I made this Candy Corn “Corn” for our neighbors a few years ago.
One of my favorite snacks during this time of year is this snick-ers-treat. I combination of candy corn, nuts and chocolate chips is like eating a snickers!
Remember how I said I love decorating with candy corn? Well I made this candy corn bunting banner for our mantel using cereal boxes! It’s super easy and so cute.
Are you like me and LOVE candy corn? Or can you do with out it?
