Tips + Variations
Traditional candy corn is a triangular shape with a yellow bottom, orange center, and white tip. Switch up the color, shape, and even flavor of candy corn to match different holidays and activities.
- I’ve seen s’mores candy corn, caramel apple candy corn, cinnamon candy corn, and even green mint candy corn.
- Around Easter, you can find pastel-colored candy corn. In the fall you’ll start seeing candy corn pumpkins and black and orange triangle candy corn.
Serve in a festive bowl. I love using pumpkin-shaped bowls. Clear serving containers are also fun as they showcase all the fun colors of fall.
When giving this yummy treat away, I like to use candy corn take-out boxes, candy corn-shaped cellophane bags, treat boxes with a window, or a festive plastic container from the dollar store.
More mix-ins. Adding more candies will change the simple Peanut and Candy Corn flavor and texture, but can be a fun variation. We love a good sweet and salty snack mix. For tasty additions try:
- chocolate chips
- peanut butter chips
- mini marshmallows
- different nuts like almonds and cashews
STORE. Whether you want to make this ahead of time or store leftovers, keep Candy Corn and Peanuts in an airtight container at room temperature for about 2 weeks.
