I have to admit that I could not find an ounce of candy corn in Newcastle, believe me I tried! Not even the American sweet shops that were popping up everywhere carried the most obvious of Halloween candy. In the end I just ordered a bag online, Newcastle you’ve let me down.

If, like me, you can’t find candy corn for love nor money, you can just substitute the little sweeties for more chocolate chips or M&Ms.  Just let your imagination run wild.  I’m absolutely going to give this a go with chopped Reeses peanut butter cups.  Ooof!
