Ingredients
  1. 1 cup sugar, granulated (white)
  2. 2/3 cup corn syrup (lite)
  3. 1/3 cup butter
  4. 1 tsp vanilla
  5. 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  6. 1/3 cup powdered milk
  7. 1/4 tsp salt
  8. Yellow Wilton coloring
  9. Orange Wilton coloring
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, butter and corn syrup.
  2. Bring to a gentle boil, constantly stirring, turn down heat and continue boiling for about 4 minutes (depending on how hard the liquid is boiling).
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  4. In a separate container, combine powdered sugar, salt and powdered milk.
  5. Add to liquid mixture in the pan, with a heavy wooden spoon or other sturdy spoon, stir together, this takes a lot of muscle, next time I'll do it when my husband is home to help.
  6. After allowing to cool until you can handle it. Place candy on wax paper and knead until all incorporated.
  7. Divide into 3 equal parts and color with Wilton orange and yellow coloring. I used my hands to mix the coloring in, you can put gloves on if you want, but I didn't have any trouble washing off the coloring.
  8. Roll each piece into long ropes, trying to keep the thickness close to the same size.
  9. Place ropes together, with orange in the middle.
  10. Gently press ropes together, and flatten with your hands.
  11. With a sharp knife cut triangles, not every piece will have a white point (those are good for snacking).
  12. Cut into several pieces, this recipe made a TON of candy corn.
