Homemade Candy Corn Easier Than It Sounds -- If You Follow the Recipe
Homemade Candy Corn.
You didn't expect to read the terms "cognitive dissonance" and "homemade candy corn" in the same sentence, but there they are.
Actually, the salted butter thing was the source of some debate after our first failed attempt at homemade candy corn. We had used salted when the recipe called for unsalted butter but turns out the real problem was that we stirred vigorously when we should have stirred occasionally. First try, our dough was hardly doughy, but instead a hot white mess that quickly hardened to the consistency of very dried out Play-Doh.
Rolled and ready to be cut.
