Homemade Candy Corn

Aeries helped me measure the ingredients the 2nd time around and I think that made all the difference! She even knew how to 'level' a cup of sugar!
First batch last night - total disaster - I've been hit in the ear by ice balls softer than these. Garbage. I think I let it get too hot.

Now we're getting somewhere! A bit soft and sticky but something we can work with!

Candy making is labor intensive. Whew. And I must've washed my hands 25 times.

Not even close. But lots of fun.. and they taste like the real thing!

I'll cover them with wax paper and let them dry overnight. Then maybe they'll be a little easier to handle.
