Target Canada can sometimes be a little slow on distribution of goods, especially when the shopper (me) is looking for Halloween and fall candies at the beginning of September. Wait a second- is that my problem, or Target’s? Sorry Target– I should have known better! It was too soon for shopping for fall things! The only candy that was out on the shelves while I was pre-season shopping was candy corn. I don’t like candy corn, but as you’ve just heard from my ramblings, I had no other choice for a fun cookie add-in. I couldn’t go without some sort of chocolate though, so to match the candy corn, white chocolate was in order. And yes, Target had that in stock.
Candy selection in Canada can sometimes be dismal. It’s not just a problem for one store, it’s a problem for all Canadian stores. I’m not sure if candy corn is available outside of North America, but if you can’t find it in your country, I understand! There are so many types of candies, candy bars, and chocolate bars that we can’t get here in Canada, so I have to travel over the border to get supplies for recipes. Luckily, I’m only an hour away from the nearest border crossing, so I’m able to do that. Unfortunately for some, that’s not an option. I get lots of questions about where to find certain treats or ingredients from countries around the world, and I’m usually not able to help with locating them. If there is a certain candy or ingredient that you need for a recipe, always try Googling it, and seeing if you can get it mailed to you. I also have lots of success with Amazon.
Since candy corn is made entirely of sugar, it is likely to melt in the heat of the oven, so try to keep the corn pieces away from the outside of the balls of cookie dough. You can place some on top of the cookie before putting them into the oven if you want the candy corn to be seen better.
The recipe is after the break! Enjoy!
