DIY Candy Corn Bath Salts

candy corn bath salts

I’ve decided there are two types of parents – those who steal their kids’ Halloween candy and those who don’t. Yep, I’m one of the ones who immediately confiscates the Twizzlers. Ok, and maybe any Almond Joys. While I’m not proud of this behavior I feel it all equals out after years of changing poopy diapers.

But you know the candy that no one seems to fight over? Candy corn. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll eat it in a pinch. When the only thing left is either that or Smarties (yuck). So instead I decided to make bath salts with them because the sugar dissolves in hot water!

Just put 1/2 cup Epsom salts in a Ziploc bag and add food coloring to make it orange. Squish the salt around until the color is distributed and uniform. Put the salt and candy in a closeable container and you have a fun gift!

    Ahhhh, you’re one of THOSE moms, stealing her kids’ candy…lol! I think it is only fair that once a year the kids bring home the good stuff for you. I’d be stealing the Reeces and Kit Kat bars. Mmmmm…

    I never thought to make candy corn bath salts. So festive! What a sweet gift that would be. ;)

    I just love that idea! I’m not really big on candy corn either (although I love smarties!) but this is super cute, and an easy gift. And those shoes makes me wanna wear them on halloween! Great post.

    Is it wrong that looking at this picture makes me hungry? Candy corn has never been my favorite, but I don’t hate it either. I just found out you can make homemade butterfingers with them, so I’m going to be picking up a bag this weekend! Maybe the leftovers will go in bath salts. :)
