Recently, I purchased Candy Corn. A candy I fully admit to hating. I thought I could implement it into our math lessons during Homeschool in October. But really, it's just a big bag of distraction. I don't know why I thought we could count Candy Corn without wanting to eat it all. So I put it up until I could decide what to do with it all.
Each fall/winter, as the temperature begins to drop, my girls begin requesting cocoa in the mornings. So as a way of using up the Candy Corn, we began making Candy Corn Cocoa. It's easy and actually tastes good (like an Orange Creamsicle).
Candy Corn Cocoa
2 cups milk
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup Candy Corn
The peel of one orange (use a vegetable peeler, try to get only the orange peel and not the white underneath)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Whipped Cream/Candy Corn for topping
In a saucepan, combine the milk, chocolate chips, candy corn, orange peel, extract, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the chocolate and candy corn has melted and the mixture is smooth.
