Chocolate Candy Corn Cookie Recipe



Candy corn is a popular Halloween confection. The triangle shaped candies are festive in orange, yellow, and white. They are shaped similar to that of ears of corn. Candy corn is made mostly from corn syrup and sugar. This candy has been around for over 100 years. When it was created it was originally called chicken feed. This was because corn was mostly used to feed chickens and was not consumed by people as it is today. October 30th is National Candy Corn Day. The estimates for how much candy corn is produced each year are 35 million pounds. That is a lot of candy corn! Candy corn is so popular that Oreo cookies even came out with a candy corn flavored limited edition Oreo this year.

Halloween is fast approaching and this recipe is a great way to use Halloween candy. Serve this fun cookie at your Halloween party or make them for National Candy Corn Day. This is also a great recipe to keep on hand once the holidays are over. Make these cookies when you are wondering what to do with all your leftover candy corn.
