Homemade Candy Corns.
Ingredients: 1 c. sugar, 2/3 c. light corn syrup, 1/3 c. butter, 1 t. clear vanilla, 2 1/2 c. powdered sugar, 1/3 c. powdered milk, 1/4 t. salt, food coloring.
1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, butter, corn syrup. Cook on high heat, stir constantly and bring to boil. Reduce to medium/low heat and cook 5 min. more. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
2. Sift powdered sugar, powdered milk, salt into pan, and mix thoroughly. Allow dough to cool 30 minutes.
3. Divide into 3 parts, add 3 drops of yellow to one, 2 drops of yellow and one drop of red to make the orange, and leave the third white. It felt sort of like playdough, and I just kneaded it into the color I liked.
5. Let the candies dry for 1-2 hours until hardened so they don't stick together. I also made a few 'bigger candy corns' and I slipped them on sticks to make candy corn suckers.
