More About This Recipe
  • There is no Halloween candy more iconic than candy corn, and I'm always looking for clever ways to create treats for this holiday.

    These fun Candy Corn Pops have vanilla-honey cream centers, and once dipped in candy melts taste surprisingly similar to actual candy corn. And they’re on a stick. Who doesn't love a good treat on a stick?

    These little treats are great to serve at Halloween party, but can also be individually packaged in clear cellophane bags and given away as treats!

    You'll first need to make the candy centers. Combine butter, powdered sugar, milk, honey, and vanilla extract in the bowl of a food processor or in a mixing bowl.

    Mix until it comes together into a ball.

    Knead in extra powdered sugar if needed until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Dust a non-stick silicone mat or a smooth cutting board with powdered sugar. Roll candy out into a 6x4-inch rectangle that’s about a 1/2 inch thick.

    Cut in half lengthwise then cut into 14 triangles, re-rolling dough as needed.

    Separate your triangles and allow them to dry for about an hour, flipping them over after about 30 minutes.

    Pour the candy coating wafers into individual bowls and heat in the microwave for 15-30 second increments, stirring after each, until melted.

    Dip the base of a triangle in yellow candy melts, covering just a small amount of the candy triangle. Immediately insert a wooden craft stick into the triangle and set on a non-stick mat or a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

    Dip about half of the triangles, then pop them in the freezer for a few minutes. Then continue dipping the rest and freeze them too.

    Remove, then dip the rest of the white candy triangle in orange candy coating. Freeze for about 5 minutes.

    Remove and dip the tip of each triangle into the white candy coating. Freeze for a few minutes.

    Remove and they are ready to serve. Arrange them in a block of Styrofoam for your Halloween party!
