Candy Corn & Peanuts

This party treat takes all of 2 minutes to prepare: that is, if you move REALLY slow.  I learned this trick from my dear friends Tom and Jenny at one of their famous Halloween parties.  The PERFECT combination of salty & sweet.

Candy Corn & Peanuts

Makes 2 cups


1 cup candy corn

1 cup salted dry-roasted peanuts


Mix candy corn and peanuts together in a bowl and serve.  Try not to eat the whole bowl in one sitting.

    My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting you and your mother at Surrey’s in NOLA on Saturday morning (Nov 3). I am a huge fan of Y&R and think you are a wonderful actress on the show. I was excited to find that you are also a food writer and chef. I also love to cook and as we travel around to my son’s football games and on vacations, we are always looking for interesting places to eat. I always write a review on tripadvisor to inform others of the wonderful places to dine and our experiences. I always said that when I retire from teaching that I would love to open a restaurant since I find so much pleasure from cooking and eating new dishes! I am glad to find your website and can’t wait to try some of your recipes! Thanks again for taking the time to visit with me and my husband and for allowing a quick picture!

  3. I’ve been “nuts” for this sweet & salty treat for years! The peanuts truly help balance the sweetness of candy corn and is a necessity for me. I once had too much of a good thing (candy corn) by itself and I paid for it.
