Here’s a fun food craft perfect for Fall that my kids really enjoyed. The basic idea is to use egg-less sugar cookie dough and make a candy corn on the cob! This is also a great way to use up leftover candy corn after Halloween. Plus, wouldn’t these be cute for a Halloween party?!
Eggless Sugar Cookie Dough:
(Adapted from Food.com)
* OR you could opt to use your favorite pre-made cookie dough.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch salt
3 tablespoons flour
1/8 cup sugar
Mix room temperature butter and sugar. Add vanilla and milk. Combine salt, flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Combine the dry and wet ingredients, using either a spatula or your hands. Add the extra 3T flour as needed until dough becomes less sticky. You don’t want dough to be too tough or sticky.
To make the candy corn on the cob:
Make sure your dough is very cold. So put it in the fridge after you make it for at least an hour. Grab about a fistful of dough and make a ball, then make a tube shape about 3 inches long, and flatten the ends. Start placing the candy corn in rows with the pointy end inside the dough.
Continue all the way around until it looks like a corn on the cob!
We only made two of these and then made cookies with the rest of the dough! With the leftover dough you can Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
