When you think of orange and yellow and white together, what comes to mind? I bet at this time of year, it’s candy corn. Heck, maybe that’s what comes to mind any time of year! One thing’s for sure, there’s no escaping the colorful triangle treat until the major fall holidays are over. But since we’re smack dab at the beginning-ish of fall, let’s talk about how this tri-colored sweet can bring happiness to our lives.
Well duh, in the form of food and drinks! Candy corn isn’t just for munching on alone. There are lots of creative recipes that will blow your mind! Some are made with actual candy corn, while others just look, smell or taste like it. Sounds like a win all the way around! But you be the judge- how delicious do these candy corn recipes look?

1. Candy Corn Milkshake
Who doesn’t love a creamy milkshake? I don’t think I’ve ever turned one down. And this one, made from Fanta soda and sherbet ice cream, sounds de.lec.table. Even the brisk fall weather can’t stop me from wanting to try this yummy concoction. I’ll take mine without whipped cream, but definitely don’t leave off the sprinkles!

2. Candy Corn & White Chocolate Cookies
When moms bake with their kids, I bet 99% of the time, they bake cookies. At least that’s the way it is in my house (when baking happens at all, that is). Cookie recipes are generally easy to make, and kids rarely refuse any cookie put in front of them. So grab the kids and get bakin’ with this festive cookie full of fall colored goodness!

3. Candy Corn Donuts
Whenever I walk past a donut, I feel like it’s calling me. Like it’s saying, “Come on! Pick me up! You know you want to eat me!” And I’m (luckily) pretty good about ignoring that little voice, but I’m not sure I’d do so well if this candy corn donut called out. I think this sweet, circular delight would make a great addition to a breakfast table on Halloween. So maybe I’ll give in and help myself to a delicious donut next time I hear myself being prodded.
