These Candy Corn Cones are an easy Halloween treat to make! They’re a perfect last-minute treat for your Halloween party and can be filled with whatever you like!
Are you a fan of candy corn? On a list of my favorite candies, they wouldn’t be found, but that didn’t stop me from popping several into my mouth as I was setting up this photoshoot. I do like their unique flavor and because they are so super sweet, only a few is all it takes to curb my sweet tooth.
Candy corn is such an iconic Halloween treat and has been transformed into so many crafts and desserts. It is easy to be inspired by their bright and colorful striped triangular-shaped form.
Ever since New Year’s this year, when I turned sugar cones into party horns, which were much more popular than I had anticipated, I’ve been searching for another edible craft that could be made using the simple technique of dipping a sugar cone in melted confectionery coating. Finally, I found my inspiration in a simple yellow, orange and white candy.
These Candy Corn Cones taste great just on their own and would make a wonderful Halloween dessert, but once filled with bite-size candies, they transform into a festive Halloween party favor. Just wrap them in cellophane and tie them with a ribbon for a perfect Halloween treat.

- Pour melted orange confectionery coating into a tall glass and the white and yellow into small shallow bowls.
- Dip the pointed end of one cone into the orange leaving an inch or so un-coated at the top. Freeze for 3-5 minutes until set.
- Remove the cone from the freezer and allow it to sit at room temperature for a few minutes. Then dip just the pointed tip in white. Freeze for 2-4 minutes until set.
- Remove from the freezer and dip the un-coated end in yellow. Shake away any excess (the cone will fill up with candy, be sure to shake it until you only have a thin coating on the inside of the cone.) Freeze for 3-5 minutes until set.
- Serve the Candy Corn Cones as is for a festive Halloween dessert or fill with candy, wrap in clear cellophane bags, tie with ribbon and give as party favors.
Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks, maybe more!
