This seasonal fun Candy Corn Simple Syrup is very easy to make and creates a delicious, thick syrup that is great in drinks and cocktails or drizzled on desserts, or even poured over pancakes and waffles.
Seasonal Simple Syrups
I love making custom flavored and/or seasonal simple syrups.
They are so great drizzled over ice cream, in cocktails or coffee, or really anywhere you might use syrup.
After whipping up a batch of Candy Corn Cupcakes last week (which will be live on the blog tomorrow), I had so many candy corns leftover. I really wanted to do something with all of them.
I’d say this is a “What to do with leftover Halloween candy” post, but it’s totally not. But then, I guess, in a way it kinda is. Except you need more than “leftover” candy corn.
But no worries, I will happily go buy bags of candy corn just to make up a batch of this. Yes I adore candy corn. I know it’s an interesting topic in the candy world. You either love them or hate them. I ADORE THEM!
I know people have a love/hate relationship with candy corn. There doesn’t seem to be any in between either. I don’t really get why that is, but it’s definitely true.
You either love it, or hate it.
I happen to love it, but our house is divided 50/50. It’s also divided 50/50 on black licorice but that’s another conversation all together.
Really, it’s okay by me that I’m the one that loves candy corn so much, because it just means more candy corn goodness for me and those of us that love it.
It also means I have more to make Candy Corn Simple Syrup.
Honestly this Candy Corn Simple Syrup couldn’t be a more simple recipe to make.
It’s just important you set aside about 10-20 minutes to make it and don’t walk away.
It burns quickly if not paying attention. Nobody wants burnt Candy Corn Simple Syrup.
I hope you’ll check back tomorrow for the next post for Halloween Treats Week (#HalloweenTreatsWeek) because I am using this Candy Corn Simple Syrup in a unique way.
Plus I will be posting lots more ideas in the coming weeks.
