Halloween Candy Fact

Who invented Candy Corn? And what is it made of?

Candy corn was created in the 1880s by George Renninger of the Wunderlee Candy Company, the three colors of the candy replicate kernels of corn.

Candy corn is made primarily from sugar, corn syrup, artificial coloring and binders. A serving size of 22 pieces contains 140 calories and no fat.

Candy-Making Question

How do you decorate Halloween Rice Crispy Treats ?

This is a great question a visitor asked. There are two traditional ways that I know of. One is to use colored frosting (or color vanilla frosting yourself), however, the frosting is not going to provide a great taste so I prefer to cover them in colored white chocolate.
