Everyone knows that candy corn is the classic Halloween treat. It’s basically what makes Halloween, Halloween in our book. Don’t get us wrong — we love our scary no-bake snacks and the usual sweet and savory go-tos, but candy corn has our hearts *forever.* Because of our strong feelings, it’s a no-brainer that we would want to share the best of the best to make your very own candy corn Halloween desserts. The truth is that candy corn gets even better when you add it to other favorites like brownies, cookies and cakes in these 16 delectable recipes.

1. Candy Corn and White Chocolate Softbatch Cookies: These cookies will *absolutely* melt in your mouth. They’re so delicious that we might just volunteer ourselves as tribute to taste test them for the rest of our lives. Anyone want to help us? We thought so! (via Averie Cooks)


2. Candy Corn Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake: We’re digging this dessert not only because it’s a chocolate lover’s dream, but because the dark color in combination with the orange candy corn makes the perfect Halloween treat. One large cookie cake may be the ideal party dessert. (via Life, Love and Sugar)


3. Candy Corn Milkshake: Dreams really *do* come true. A milkshake that makes us feel like we’re eating a giant candy corn is our new go-to dessert, thanks to a smart pairing of the right colored ice cream. (via Baking Beauty)


4. Candy Corn Sugar Cookies: Don’t be fooled! These cake-looking slices are actually candy corn cookies in disguise. With two layers of colored cookie topped with white frosting, this treat might not be made of candy corn, but it sure looks like it. (via The Girl Who Ate Everything)


5. Candy Corn Bundt Cake Recipe: Bundt cakes are like your crazy aunt: They’ve been around forever and they just keep getting better every year. This Bundt is sporting some seriously cool color patterns on the inside, but still looks classic on the outside. (via Mom Foodie)


6. Candy Corn Donuts: The love we have for donuts is strong, so it’s only natural that we would want a Halloween-themed donut loaded with candy corn goodness. Plus, these donuts are baked, so that basically means they’re *healthy* and it cancels out all the sugar from the sweet icing. Right? (via Chez CateyLou)


7. Candy Corn Magic Bars: We don’t even know what “magic bars” means, but we do know that these things might be the most incredible dessert since the invention of chocolate. These bars are made with a graham cracker crust, and you see those chips? Yeah, those *are* peanut butter. (via Crazy for Crust)


8. Candy Corn and White Chocolate Blondies: The blonde brownie is such a fascinating dessert because it takes on the color of the candy add-ins you mix into it. In this case, lots o’ candy corn. Who wouldn’t love the orange and yellow colors?! (via Averie Cooks)


9. PB Candy Corn Pretzel Bark: Ah, the chocolate and peanut butter combination… It’s definitely one of our very favorite dessert flavors. Adding in that candy corn to a classic bark takes it to a totally different level of over-the-top goodness. (via Something Swanky)


10. Candy Corn Truffle Bark Recipe: We love these truffles because it’s like having the best of two very delicious worlds: You get a bark with a nice snap to it, but then the creaminess of a truffle on the inside! BONUS: It’s made with three cups of candy corn, so that’s always a major plus. (via The Gunny Sack)


11. Harvest Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake: This cookie cake is so well-decorated and beautiful, we think it could double as a spooky Halloween treat *and* a festive Thanksgiving Day dessert. Either way, we’re eating every last piece of this thing. (via Crazy for Crust)


12. Homemade Candy Corn: We always wondered how candy corn was made, and presto, now we have an answer! Hint: You’ll need a free afternoon in the kitchen and a whole lot of sugar. Thankfully, it’s very well worth it. (via The Kitchen Is My Playground)


13. Candy Corn Meringues: If the flavor of candy corn isn’t your jam, then these little guys are the perfect solution. The recipe doesn’t actually call for candy corn, just food coloring to keep it feeling like a festive Halloween treat. (via Make Bake Celebrate)


14. Candy Corn Cupcakes: What’s Halloween without some cupcakes that look and taste like the most classic Halloween candy there is? A sad Halloween, that’s what that is. We say the more candy corn the better, and the more cupcakes the better too. (via Damn Delicious)


15. White Chocolate Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats: Who knew white chocolate and candy corn was such a desirable combination? Well, now *we* know, and we have to say we’re going to use it for everything. (via Yellow Bliss Road)


16. White Chocolate Monster Munch Chex Mix: We absolutely *melt* for chocolate-covered Chex mix. It’s definitely a go-to on our party snack list. Throwing in candy corn is a super obvious addition to sweeten the mix up even more. (via Six Sisters’ Stuff)
