That's so corny!

It's hard to believe that 365 days have gone by and we're celebrating the most wonderful day of the year again. Yes, it's true. Today is National Candy Corn Day! Well, you might not celebrate it, but I do. I'm addicted to the stuff. I think this day should become an official holiday. In order for that to happen, Congress has to approve it. With the way they've been working lately, this wouldn't be a stretch. I blogged about candy corn last year and you can click here if you want to read that old post. This year I thought it would be fun to list different ways to use this colorful treat ...

10 Things To Do With Candy Corn

8. Create a Candy Corn Pin

So, there you have it -- candy corn projects for kids of all ages! Another thing I like to do with candy corn is bake pumpkin shaped sugar cookies. I frost them with an orange glaze and use candy corn for the eyes and nose. They look really cute. Also, don't forget about my photo Caption Contest. You still have time to enter if you haven't already. All you have to do is leave a caption comment for the elk picture. Everyone who enters will have their names put into a pot and one winner will be chosen. The prize is a really neat book featuring beautiful photographs of Yellowstone National Park, as well as a dark chocolate huckleberry truffle bar. The contest ends tomorrow and I'll be posting the winner as well as all of the replies. I usually blog in the mornings, but I'll do this one later in the day. Good luck!

  6. That is WAY cool Rena! Happy Halloween!

  7. Put the candy corn down and step away from the candy corn. Remember the first step to fighting the addiction is admitting you have a problem.
    hee hee

    Enjoy your candy corn Rena.
