Dress up your popcorn to look like an iconic Halloween candy. Toss some popcorn in orange, yellow, and white Candy Melts and nestle the pieces in clear plastic cone shaped bags to create these festive Popcorn Candy Corn Bags.
Candy corn is the quintessential Halloween candy. Even if you don’t like it, you are aware of it’s presence at this time of year. Store shelves are piled high with bags of the orange, yellow, and white striped candies.
I actually like candy corn in moderation. As a kid I was able to eat an entire bag in one sitting. I know this because I did it, probably more than once. Now that my tastes in candy have matured, I still will pop a few into my mouth, but I can walk by a bowl and resist the temptation. I can’t say that is true for white chocolate popcorn.
I love the candy coated puffs of corn and would definitely finish off one of these Popcorn Candy Corn Bags in one sitting even considering how big I made them.
Each of these treats is packaged in an 18 inch clear plastic disposable pastry bag. Each bag holds a nice amount of popcorn. If you want you can share your bag with a friend or package them in smaller 12 inch pastry bags.
To make these treats you can melt and temper pure white chocolate then color some of it orange and yellow or you can simply use colored Candy Melts, like I did.
Here’s a quick video tutorial to watch and the recipe is below.
