Candy Corn on the Cob Tutorial Hip2Save

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

* 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.

How to Make Candy Corn on the Cob - Hip2Save

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!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
