Candy Corn

Let me take a minute to share my thoughts on this lovely fall treat. When I was in high school, I was a candy corn fanatic. Couldn't get enough of this sugary stuff. My friends and I would load up on it whenever we had an assembly or class trip. Now over the years out of tradition, I fill up my glass pumpkin with it every fall although the stuff just doesn't taste like it used to.
I have discovered a new twist on it, If you like payday candy bars, you will love this... You take a handful of salted peanuts and a few candy corns and voila! A yummy little treat. One of my new faves. I found a brownie recipe that has a topping of candy corn and peanuts that I am going to try for dessert next week. I will share that Monday and let you know how it turns out.
Now this year miss Natalie found for me two new flavors of candy corn when we were shopping at Walgreen's the other day. Brach's makes caramel and caramel apple. The carmel, I am loving. The carmel apple, the kids are loving. It just wouldn't be fall with out it!

that is rather interesting Heather! I prefer the peanut butter kisses! I remember a couple yrs ago when I ate 3 bags of them!
They really are filling! I need to NOT be near them;)
We need to enjoy the wonderful pleasures of fall, ya know? Bring on the Apple cider;)

I saw in the target ad a few weeks ago, that hersheys had kisses called candy corn..not sure if it was chocolate, or candy corn. but thought it was cool. course i should have bought it, but didnt.
