Krayl’s Homemade Candy Corn Marshmallows {#SundaySupper}


Ask the Mr., majority of the year I am more of a cook than a baker however, once the fall weather hits I feel the urge to head to the kitchen, put on my bakers apron, bring out my Grandmothers retro mixer and try my hand at creating sweet treats. Who can blame me with numerous opportunities to share your sweet creations like Halloween and Christmas just around the corner on the calendar?



Since I was little, I have been unable to resist a bag of candy corn staring at me on the shelf of the local drug store. I intentionally wait until the week before Halloween to buy them knowing that I will eat an entire bag of those sweet colorful triangles in less than two days all by myself if I am not careful – and don’t even get me started on the mini Trick-or-Treat candy bars!

This year I wanted to try something a little different, making my own Halloween treats and DIY Fall themed treat bags to pass out to the neighborhood kids and to send to our little friends in other states. It’s Halloween so let’s go all out – bring on the sweetness and make Homemade Candy Corn Marshmallow Treats.




Remember the days when you headed out in your neighborhood to fill your UNICEF box with pennies and filled your pillow case with various homemade treats from neighbors your parents knew by name? In most communities those days might be long gone however, we currently live in a smaller community and, to my dismay, only get a few kids so I am going to make up a few special bags for the neighborhood kids filled with my Homemade Candy Corn Marshmallows with my name on them so after the night’s frenzy is over they will remember who passed them out and that they are indeed safe it eat without concern. The sugar rush, I cannot be held accountable for – they are on their own for that!




I promise not to eat them all in one sitting, but I don’t think I can promise not to eat them one layer at a time. You know what I mean – first the white layer, then the yellow layer, then finally the orange layer. Don’t tell me you don’t do that. Don’t you taste the difference in flavor or each layer? OK, there may not be a difference in the flavor for the standard version of candy corns but in this version of Homemade Candy Corn Marshmallow Treats you might just taste it. See I have friends whose kids can’t eat any conventional food dye or coloring so I wanted to be sure my homemade Halloween treats were safe for them to eat as well – all the coloring in these treats are from food based colors {I was going to try my hand at making them but then at the last minute I saw some clever company had done it for me}.

I used a small spray bottle to create the color bands and then became obsessed with what else I could make out of these little homemade marshmallow treats! Be on the lookout for future posts using this recipe to dream up more seasonal shapes! But before you go – let me know in the comments what you are handing out this year. I might just come knock on your door!
