Did you know candy corn was initially named chicken feed? In the 1800s, the production of candy corn started, and the little orange, kernel-shaped candy was made by hand. It’s a treat we’re all familiar with and conjures the best Halloween memories.

Close the test tube with the small lid and continue filling the rest.

Make these a day before the party and store them in the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to serve them, place them in a bowl filled with ice to keep them chilled. Another idea is to have someone at the door serving them as guests arrive. Starting the party off right!!

Recipe Variations

  • I use vodka for this recipe, but you can use gin or make candy corn shots with Malibu.
  • If this recipe is too strong, add a little orange juice after the vodka has infused and before adding the liquid into the test tubes.
  • If you don’t have test tubes, these can be served in standard shot glasses.

Frequently Asked Question

What does candy corn taste like?

This will vary depending on who you ask. Some people describe it as being overly sweet, while others enjoy its unique flavor.

The main ingredients in candy corn include sugar, corn syrup, and honey. It also contains small amounts of cocoa butter, milk powder, and other added flavors such as vanilla or maple. These ingredients give candy corn its signature taste – a combination of sweetness and creaminess with a hint of honey.

However, there are also those who find candy corn to have a rather artificial taste, possibly due to its high sugar content and use of artificial flavors.
