  • ½ Cup Candy Corn
  • 12 oz White Chocolate Chips
  • 15 Large Marshmallows
  • 1 Cup Frosting (2 C. Powdered Sugar and ¼ Cup Heavy Cream)
  • Powdered Sugar

  • Add in the white chocolate chips and continue to microwave until soft.
  • Place the marshmallows on top of the mixture, and microwave once more until they are puffed.
  • Place the mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer, and beat until room temperature.
  • In a small bowl, make a batch of thick frosting with about 2 cups of powdered sugar and ¼ cup of heavy cream.
  • Add the frosting into the candy corn mixture and beat until the taffy lightens in color and starts to lose its gloss.
  • Add in more powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time until you can touch the taffy and it does not stick to your hand (about ¾ cup).
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar over a large piece of wax paper, and place the taffy on top to rest for a few minutes.
  • Divide the taffy into four pieces, and start pulling and folding it, coating your hands in powdered sugar as needed to avoid sticking.
  • Roll out the taffy into thin logs and cut into small pieces.
  • Wrap the individual pieces of taffy in small pieces of wax paper and twist the ends.
  • Enjoy!
