Honey & Brown Sugar Candied Corn

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by the80srule

I saw this on the Thanksgiving special of Down Home With The Neelys and finally found the recipe! You can find the original on the Food Network website. But I changed it for convenience reasons. I'm guessing that 6 ears of corn would be about one 14-oz cans or a 16-oz bag of frozen corn (going by the reviews on the Food Network site); I don't have patience or time to husk those! Canola or sunflower oil would probably work fine if you're avoiding solid fats.

My whole family loved it. It was so easy to cook, and I didn't even have to go shopping.
