I try to stay away from candy most of the time.  It does not agree with my hips in any way shape or form.  I also find that too much sugar just plays havoc with my immune system overall. But during the holidays, all that changes.  I turn into a little kid and try get my fix for the next year and then some.  Not very adult of me, but what’s a girl to do? I’ll pay for it in January, but I do enjoy the next few months.

The recipe for candy corn truffles is very easy to do.  Basically, it is a lot of chopping, and rolling and a bit of cooking all put together in one decadent bite.  So be prepared to get those hands right into the mixture and start making some scrumptious little bits of heaven.

Candy corn balls ingredientsTo make these delicious truffles, you will need these items:

The first step is to combine 4 tbsp of butter with 20 Golden Oreo cookies and 1/3 cup of candy corn in a food processor.  I use my food processor all the time in the fall. It makes crumbs for truffles and crumbles so quickly and is easy to clean, as well.  Pulse the mixture until it is nice and crumbly.candy corn balls mixture

Combine the white chocolate and marshmallow fluff in a bowl and set aside, then cook together some sugar, evaporated milk, and butter for 3 minutes, stirring the whole time.  Add the cooked mixture to the chocolate and fluff mix.  

Roughly chop up another 4 cookies and the remainder of the candy corn.  Add them to the soft mixture and combine well.Place this in the fridge until it is firm but not completely set.  When it is cooled, add it to the crumb mixture and pulse again.  It will be the consistency of very thick cookie dough now.

Grease your hands and shape the crumb mixture into 30 balls about 1 inch in size and set aside on a plate..Rolled candy corn ballsNow you will roll the balls into your choice of coating.  I used shredded coconut, chocolate sprinkles and chopped pecans.  Roll the Oreo Candy corn balls in your choice of coating.

    Yes, want to make these but not sure why the amount of evaporated milk is left out of the recipe! A whole can?? How many ounces?

      Hi Mary Ann, I apologize for the confusion. I showed the evaporated milk amount in one of the photos but neglected to mention it in the ingredient list. It’s one cup. Thanks for letting me know about the omission.
