Candy corn just might be our favorite Halloween treat (well, aside from those fun-size Twix bars) so we're all about these candy corn-inspired confections -- cakes, cookies, fudge and even a fruit parfait -- that are just as sweet and colorful as the real thing. The best part: Most are super easy to scare up.
White Chocolate Candy Corn Pretzel Fudge
Fudge gets a fun Halloween upgrade when it’s studded with candy corn and pretzel pieces. (We love that sweet-salty combo!) It’s easy enough that your kids can help; the hardest part is just letting it set in the fridge for the necessary 3-5 hours.

Candy Corn Cake
I Am Baker
Meet your Halloween party showstopper: Sure, this gorgeous cake will take you all afternoon to assemble, but it’ll be so worth it when you cut into that perfectly piped candy corn-inspired icing and reveal three pretty layers… swoon.

Candy Corn Sugar Cookie Bars
High Heels and Grills
Yes, you could painstakingly roll and cut out candy corn-shaped sugar cookies (so much work! So much flour!) or you could make these awesome frosted tri-color sugar cookie bars and cut them into triangles. Guess which one we’re baking?

Candy Corn Fudge
This smooth, creamy fudge gets all of its Halloween cuteness from the yellow, orange and white colors -- not to mention the candy corn shape you can cut it into. Best of all: with just three ingredients, it’s super easy to make.

Healthy Halloween Snack Candy Corn Fruit Cocktail
Family Fresh Meals
There’s nothing healthy about candy corn but you can offset all the sugar -- a little bit, anyway -- with this candy corn-inspired fruit parfait: Just layer pineapple chunks and clementine slices with a little whipped cream and add a garnish of the real thing. So easy!

Candy Corn Meringues
Make Bake Celebrate
Crisp and melty at the same time, we think meringues are kind of amazing, but giving them the three-layer candy corn treatment takes them to a whole other level of awesomeness. Make cute little ghosts from the leftover white, too.
