Halloween week is upon us and I'm so excited! Halloween was always my favorite holiday of the year. Getting dressed up, trick or treating, eating all those tiny candy bars. So much fun. I'm pretty sure I went trick or treating all the way into high school. Well, I went until I shot up six inches and couldn't pull off "cute" anymore. Nobody wants to give a five foot nine girl candy.
I decided to make one final Halloween treat for all of us. After Christine shared with me what good candy corn is supposed to taste like (vanilla and sugar), I decided to make my own version of candy corn.
Candy corn mallomars!
Using my favorite almond sugar cookie and simple vanilla marshmallow recipes, these mallomars came together quickly. I also was sure to use high quality sanding sugars (because cheap-o ones taste a little bitter) to give a little sparkle and shine to these treats.
Now I think I'll go and hand these out to the people that work around my apartment building. We don't get trick-or-treaters, so I'll just have to make my own fun!
