Candy Corn Cookies – Halloween Treat

Lemon Candy Corn cookies from a cake mix were created to add to a “Pop Corn Box Challenge” that we were asked to take part in.   We were given a blank popcorn box and asked to decorate it for halloween.   I used pattern paper, die cuts a little burlap and a little ink to makeover my container.

Melt the candy melts – I use a bottle in the microwave. Place a dollop on the cookies and spread around. Spread the icing around and let it harden.

Mix the powdered sugar with the lemon juice a little bit at a time until you have the consistency of glue.  Place a small dollop on the center of the cookies and let harden.
