Colorful Candy Corn Sugar Cookie Stacks

October 14, 2014

Candy corn sugar cookie stacks are a sweet and simple Halloween treat.  Sugar cookie dough that has been colored yellow and orange and layered on top of one another.  Once baked, the cookie bars are topped with white frosting to complete the candy corn trio.  The bars are cut into triangles and each one is decorated with coordinating candy sprinkles and candy corn.  If you prefer a cookie with more of an artistic flair, you can mix the two colored doughs to create a marbled effect or roll the doughs into logs and twist them together (much like you would to make candy corn cookies). Candy corn are a festive sweet that anyone can bake.
