Candy-Corn Dots

In the spirit of Dr. Frankenstein, we created a hybrid that combines two classics: candy corn and the old-fashioned dots you used to get at the dime store -- perfect for party favors or classroom treats.

Cook's Notes

One box of confectioners' sugar yields enough white, yellow, and orange royal icing to make 10 strips of 60 dots.

    golanaraven, I'm sure you could easily make your own template. Just use some graph paper and make evenly spaced out dots, or pull out a ruler and measure the evenly spaced dots out. You don't even need to make strips. You could spell out your granddaughters name or do her initials. I like your red, white and blue idea. I'm going to try that this summer.

    I would love to make these candy dots for my grand daughter but the promised template is not where the magazine article sent me on line. I thought it would be fun changing colors for different events (red, white and blue for the 4th of July; pastels for Easter; red and green for Christmas etc) but without the template I would just make a mess out of it. Too bad. It was a good idea.
