Happy start of the week – well, at least I hope it will be with these festive bars! I’m sure many of you are huge candy corn lovers – I must confess that I’m not a fan of the candies – you are probably thinking “what’s wrong with her?” I really don’t have a solid reason for not being a fan (maybe a bit too sugary) BUT I do like these bars that look like candy corn (they are orange flavored).
With Halloween around the corner, you might want to whip up a batch of these!
- 3/4 cup butter melted, slightly cooled
- 1 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
- 4 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 4 drops yellow food color
- 3 drops red food color
- 1/2 cups soft butter
- 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
- 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 tsp vanilla (I used clear)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- – candy corns for decorations
Today these bars are making their way to the DIY Guy’s work place to share with his co-workers. While I enjoy baking the treats – I can’t eat all the treats!!
