Step by step instructions for making homemade candy corn this Halloween, or anytime you need a candy corn fix.
Lay the strands on top of each other or side by side - yellow, orange, then white (this is the order of store bought candy corn) and press them together using your fingers. Cut into 4-inch pieces (I assume this is to make the next step easier, I think it is optional, or you could make the pieces longer).
Shape each 4 inch piece into a triangular snake with white on top and yellow on the bottom.
Alton Brown's original directions call for the color order as white, yellow than orange. But store bought candy corn is white, orange then yellow. I made them according to his directions, hence the pictures are in reverse order of the store bought version. The written instructions below are for the store bought order.
