Cookies With Candy Corn

Shape and refrigerate the handmade dough for these buttery cookies in advance. Simple tricolor sweets need just be sliced and baked when right. The corn will look like little teeth on your cookie. 

Apples With A Black Heart

Candy Corn Pudding

The crisp autumn air is calling out for these simply frozen sweets. Each pop may resemble candy corn with just a few droplets of food coloring, but the hues can be changed to suit the occasion.
