You will be as impressed as I was when I figured out that you can actually make easy taffy at home in the microwave! No fancy pans or stirring forever to create this sweet goodness. Okay, now that you are good and hungry, let’s get to it!
- ½ Cup Candy Corn
- 12 oz White Chocolate Chips

- Powdered Sugar
- In a heatproof bowl, microwave the candy corn until just starting to melt.
- Add in the white chocolate chips and continue to microwave until soft.
- Place the marshmallows on top of the mixture, and microwave once more until they are puffed.
- Place the mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer, and beat until room temperature.
- In a small bowl, make a batch of thick frosting with about 2 cups of powdered sugar and ¼ cup of heavy cream.
- Add the frosting into the candy corn mixture and beat until the taffy lightens in color and starts to lose its gloss.
- Add in more powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time until you can touch the taffy and it does not stick to your hand (about ¾ cup).
- Sprinkle powdered sugar over a large piece of wax paper, and place the taffy on top to rest for a few minutes.
- Divide the taffy into four pieces, and start pulling and folding it, coating your hands in powdered sugar as needed to avoid sticking.
- Roll out the taffy into thin logs and cut into small pieces.
- Wrap the individual pieces of taffy in small pieces of wax paper and twist the ends.
