You can always add a tinge of your creativity to establish your signature dish. Here goes an interesting idea to make some colorful and sparkling bright cereal candies. Take a cup of flavored and sweetened corn. It would be great if it’s fruit flavored. Make sure to grind the corn well. Mix it with a frosting of your choice and then roll the candies with some colorful sprinkles. It is going to be a real treat to your loved ones. To add more colors to the candies, divide the ground cereal into six parts.
Take six different and bright colors of your choice. Now, combine the corn with the colors and stir it up well. It is now time for processing. Process the colored cereal one by one in the food processor until it reaches a fine texture. Then add about 1/4th cup of the frosting to the mixture and blend uniformly in the processor again. Make sure that the filling does not clump. You can add a few more spoons of filling if the mixture becomes dry. Then, dip the candies in the sprinkles and wait for it to set. Hope these candies add more fun to the festive season.
