candy corn sugar cookies

i love candy.

i love candy bars.
i love cotton candy.
i love candy stands.
i love striped candy.
i love chewy, hard, crunchy, chocolate, gooey, sticky candy.
basically i love all candy.

i like corn.

i like creamed corn.
i like sweet corn.
i like cornbread.
i like corn muffins & corn fritters.
i like corn on the cob.
i like white corn, yellow corn, mixed corn, popcorn.
basically i like all corn. 

so you would think since i love/like these things. 
i would really really love/like them together. 
as in candy corn.

nope.

don't like it.
i don't like regular candy corn.
i don't like chocolate candy corn.
i don't like indian candy corn.
i don't like caramel candy corn. 
i don't like ---------STOP!!!!
we get it already.

try this.
huh? but, but, uh...
well...ok...they sure smell awful good....

holy smackaroos! 
THAT IS GOOOOOOOD!
and i mean REALLY GOOOOOOD!

they're like a different kinda white chocolate.

and they are way larger than regular m&m's!
and they are really really really good on cookies.

make these.

it's as easy as corn pie.
(which i have no idea if there is such a thing but let's go with it)

truth is,
i think candy corn is one of the cutest candies out there and they always always remind me of the spooky holiday, purtty colored leave season, & roasted turkey in the oven. 
and that in itself is enough to like

candy corn :D

  2. I tried these candies this weekend and OMG they are the bomb! I plan on making a batch of these cookies to share around the office. They will certainly be appreciated - and maybe I can control myself by only eating 1 (not 10).
