I have a thing for candy corn, but not actual candy corn, those are gross (they are right up there with Circus Peanuts…eww). I mostly just love the colors of candy corn, and how they make me think of this time of year with Autumn and Halloween.
Ever since we drove past the cute little store Fancy Flours in Bozeman, MT (where I also got the idea for this Giant Candy Corn Cupcake), I have wanted one of these candy corn cookie cutters but since they were all sold out, I had to get creative.
So what’s the next best thing to giant Candy Corn Cookies? Giant Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats, of course. Plus they were a lot easier to make…no baking. I used Almond bark for the top coat. I love rice krispie treats for kids, because they are crumb free.
For the frosting, I bought one pkg of White Almond Bark and divided it into three (with a little more for the orange color). I chopped up each section so it would melt quicker in the microwave. Then mixed in the food coloring. I started with orange to make sure that I had enough.
I made two batches of Rice Krispie Treats, and one pkg of Almond Bark was enough to cover all of them.
