It's hard to top the nostalgic appeal of real candy corn, but in my opinion these Candy Corn Snack Cakes, decorated to look like giant candy corn kernels, come pretty close. You can use your choice of brownies, rice crispy treats, or cake to form the basis of this recipe. They're covered with colored fondant, which most people might agree is not so tasty on its own. But imagine this: your brownies or rice crispies are slathered in chocolate frosting, then topped with a thin layer of homemade marshmallow fondant, which tastes exactly like--you guessed it--marshmallows! If you're an almond fan, you could use marzipan instead to add even more flavor.
