I have always wanted to make my own candy, and now, with a nut-allergic toddler, I am even more interested in experimenting with candy that I make sure is safe for him. Candy Corn has always been a favorite of mine despite all of the nasty waxy ingredients in the mass-produced kind, so I'm kind of excited to try to make my own without all of the factory additives!
CAVEAT–I have not yet tested this recipe. I am merely sharing it because it is seasonably appropriate and sounds pretty simple (if labor intensive) and yummy. My friend Sheri tried it and vouches for it–though she replaced the Light Corn Syrup with Lyle's Golden Syrup. I hope to test it out soon…and I'll comment back!
