20 Best Candy Corn Desserts for Your Halloween Party

This Halloween we’re serving up something full of Halloween fun. We’re adding candy corn into all of our favorite desserts. These candy corn recipes give you a reason to throw a frightening Halloween party this year. While Candy corn isn’t a typical baking ingredient, these dishes add something totally new into your Halloween menu, while still keeping the candy element that all Halloween desserts must have. Candy corn’s smooth, chewy texture is always surprising in any Halloween dessert. Instead of throwing your candy corn treats into a glass bowl, use this sweet crunchy candy to give your Halloween desserts a fun twist that no one will see coming.  

This iconic candy was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger, a candy maker at the Wunderle Candy Company in Philadelphia, according to Better Homes and Gardens. The company is still producing candy corn today with the original recipe that combines marshmallow, vanilla and, of course, sugar. These little orange, yellow, and white treats have become an iconic symbol of Halloween over the years, and it wouldn’t be a Halloween party without them!
