I was surprised with how well this worked. Candy corns are little more than a lot of sugar, and blending this sugar with just a little bit of unsweetened cocoa powder will turn it into a thick chocolate glaze or sauce. All you need are one or more bags of candy corns (which you may be able to find at a 90% after-Halloween discount), butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, and milk:
Melt butter in a saucepan or skillet, then add a bag of candy corns. Stir about 10 minutes until the candy corns are completely melted, then stir in 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder. Add milk or cream to thin to the right texture; only a couple of tablespoons of milk or cream are needed. The entire mixture becomes a thick chocolate glaze, without any taste of candy corn. It pours well over a cake or into a mold, and hardens into a shell or shape with the consistency…and taste…of a Tootsie Roll. The candy corns with bags labeled "made with real honey" will certainly give a better taste, but cheap dollar store candy corn will work just fine.
