Candy Corn Cookies
It's not October without some good ole Candy Corn! I decided to make my own version of candy corn out of refrigerated sugar cookie dough. First I colored the dough orange by using some Wilton icing color and rolled it out flat.
Next step was to cut the dough into triangles that would resemble the shape of candy corn.
These candy corn look naked...they are missing some other colors like yellow, white and brown... what do you say we dip them in chocolate?
Heat a cup of Nestle white and milk chocolate morsels in the microwave at 30 second intervals and stir, keep heating until chocolate is melted. Dip the tips of the cookies in the desired chocolate to create the look of a traditional candy corn. I added a few drops of yellow food coloring to the white chocolate to create the yellow base of the cookie.
Oh these look so good.
Lets see how the candy corn cookies measure up to the traditional candy corn...pretty darn cute!
