    JennT's Note:

    After having a peanut and candy corn mix that tasted fantastic I decided to make a cookie version! Candy corns melt in the middle creating a nougat like center. It’s a great salty/sweet combo!

      These are great!! I love unique recipes & this really was a neat recipe for Halloween! The sweet/salty combo is perfect & I love the texture of the baked candy corn. I'll probably make these every Fall!

      These worked out really well for me and turned out cute. I pressed in 4 candycorns in each cookie ball to make a circle. A great idea to use up your x-tra candycorn's during the Halloween season. (if there's any left).:-)
