For many, Halloween candy is something you buy — not make. But homemade mellowcreme pumpkins, aka candy corn, are too good not to make. Their thicker shape gives them a chewy, unique texture that sets them apart from the aisles of store-bought candies, and DIYing them means they'll be fresher, creamier and have a more well-rounded, deeper flavor. Oh, and not only are these little pumpkins cute and tasty, but they just so happen to work perfectly as toppers on any Halloween cake.
