If you’ve been around the blog for awhile, you know I love “fun foods”/edible crafts! And, Laura is here today with a really cute idea for making “Caramel Corn on the Cob”! 🙂 These would be great for the kids’ table at Thanksgiving and I think it would be extra ADORABLE to add a green fruit roll up on the outside!
Hello Mom Endeavors’ readers!! I’m Laura and I live over at Pink Cake Plate! I am so excited to be back over here for Sara’s Cornucopia of Creativity!!! I had originally planned to share a super secret pie recipe but decided that it need to stay super secret!! LOL! Not really! What actually happened was I was making these for Halloween and inspiration struck!!
Since I had the candy melts all nice and melty, I decided to go with it! I had picked up one of these at the Dollar store about 2 weeks ago with the notion to do something with it! I love caramel corn especially soft chewy caramel corn! And what could be better than chocolate and caramel corn?
So today I have a quick and easy sweet autumn treat to make!! This is so easy you can do it with the kiddos!! I even came up with a few different variations…
Chocolate Covered Caramel Corn!!
– Various sprinkles
– Caramel corn~bought this one at the dollar store or you could make your own from scratch
– Parchment Paper is not a must have but I love it for candy making!
Melt your candy melts according to the directions on the package: I use my microwave at 30 second intervals stirring in between. The melts will burn very quickly so be careful!!
The corn cob was kind of big so I cut it into 4 pieces cutting them vertically so they still looked like a cob of corn.
Dip the wider end of the caramel corn in the melted candy. If you need to, you can spoon the chocolate over the caramel corn to your liking.
Carefully shake off the excess candy. The caramel corn is very soft, so it may break while trying to get the excess candy off (BE CAREFUL)!!
Place on parchment paper or a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with candy sprinkles.
Let set up. You can place them in the freezer or fridge for about 10 minutes to speed the process. Once candy has hardened and set, you’re done!!!
Or, you can get fancy! I had some milk chocolate so I melted it and then drizzled with the white and pumpkin colored candy!!
Insert a lollipop stick and you have Caramel Corn on the Cob!!! hahahahaha!!
You could even wrap them in plastic wrap for favors!
Or, you could make Caramel Corn Pops! Just cut the caramel corn horizontally and then dip in melted candy!
Wasn’t that easy peasy lemon squeezy?!?!
Thanks so much for letting me hang out here today!! I hope you have a fantastic Sunday!! Now, go make some chocolate covered caramel corn!
How fun! I love chocolate and popcorn!
ohhh so cute! I need some of theese! thanks for sharing Laura-
