Candy corn –it’s the classic sweet for fall, and you’ve already read my profession of love for it in this post here. It’s especially delightful when Halloween rolls around, so with only a few short days before the spooky holiday (and trick-or-treaters) show up at our doorstep, make a little something for everyone to enjoy.
These candy corn pops look a whole lot like the orange and yellow candy, but are actually made out of popcorn. Similar to rice crispies, they incorporate melted marshmallows and are ooey gooey good! Did I mention that they’re easy to make? Perfect for when you’re in a pinch and rushing to put everything together for a fabulous Halloween party.
680 grams small marshmallows
2 bags of sweet and salty popcorn, popped
Yellow and red food colouring
- In a microwavable bowl, melt marshmallow for one portion (227 grams) in short 10 second intervals, stirring after each. Add the food colouring, stir, and mix in the popped popcorn until well covered. Let sit for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to the cake pan and form a ring, pressing tightly.
- Repeat with the orange and white, until you have the cake mold completely filled. Pat the entire mix tightly. Cover and let cool in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
- Slice into 8 pieces, and gently press to round the corners with the middle of your palm. Insert barbecue skewers into each.
With that sweet & salty taste and extra crunch for kick, there’s no trick here, only a treat!
Style is served!
