Deep-Fried Candy Corn Exists

fcandy2

What to do with all of that unwanted candy corn? Well, when in doubt, the answer is always “deep-fry.”

Amy of Oh, Bite It! knows this, and has created Deep-Fried Candy Corn. The process is simple, needing only Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough and all of that candy corn, of which you should have plenty. Wrap those sugar nuggets in dough, fry, and your upcycling is complete.

If you need to get your point across, and that point is mean-spirited and could be hurtful to others, there’s no better way to deliver your message than scrawled across a cake or cookie. Brought to us by artist, Sarah Brockett, Bold Bakery is a bakeshop concept that’ll do the talking for you.

Although this might appear to be the ultimate form of passive-aggressiveness, at least they’ll feel a bit better after slicing into their insult cake. Unless you decide to deliver the ‘whore’ surprise pie… that’ll sting for a while.

How To Pair Wine With Halloween Candy

101514-winecandy-header

It’s late Halloween night, and the kids are done tricking and/or treating. But they’re asleep now, and it’s time to do what any good parent would do…. Start drinking and raid their candy stash.

Be prepared this Halloween with this handy chart, that’ll help pair a wine with all that candy. Did your kids get an abundance of Skittles? Then you’ll want a dry white wine at the ready. Kit Kats are versatile, in that they pair well with a sparkling wine or medium red.

Did the kids get a lot of candy corns? Then there’s no hope for you this evening, and you should get better neighbors.
