candy corn doodles


when it comes to halloween, i think that i have a little too much pollyanna in me to embrace those "friday the 13th" movies or that creepy chucky doll. i really love the fun side of halloween, and as you know, where there's fun, i can usually work in food somehow! this little candy corn doodle popped into my head and i decided to do something a little different and create some tags with it! i'm offering them in my etsy shop in sets of ten, and they come with plastic bags too, so all you have to do is fill them with the sweets of your choice and you'll have a nice little treat for all your ghoulies!

This is such a fun idea! I'm with you on not being able to embrace the creepy things that come around this time of year!

I'm with you - I prefer the "cutsie" side of Halloween over the scary part. These are adorable -- if only my boys were still small and at home (.... or grandkids which are probably way in the future). What fun!!

Cute tags! Unfortunately, I can't think of anybody besides me that likes candy corn except me. Yummmmmmmmm.

I've always loved Candy Corns for some strange reason.. My family makes fun of me.. They say they are made of all the throw away candies from the entire year.. That's why they only sell them at Halloween. haha Now this just makes them even cuter.

You are such an inspiring creative little lady! Very cute!

I've never liked halloween in any shape form or fashion. I was scared of it as a child and I don't see the sense in it today, especially for kids. It's like the giving the "dead" a day to be mean. It's so unproductive.

I guess I'm just a party pooper.

I do not like scary movies (to me they are no fun but my hubby gets a kick out of them) but I do like Hallowe'en costumes - and the candies.

Candy corn is my absolute favorite! I love your idea, so cute and sweet! I like both sides of the Halloween sprectrum. Scary and cute - I have a mixture of both.

You're so funny, Lori! We get into the creepy gory stuff at our house - with plenty of sweets thrown in to lessen the shock.
