Healthy Halloween: Vegan Candy Corn

Vegan Candy Corn
1/4 cup golden syrup (look for Lyle’s brand)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup gluten-free flour or tapioca flour + more for mixing
Food coloring*
Parchment paper

1. Take the golden syrup, vanilla, and melted coconut oil and combined using a whisk in a bowl. Then add in powdered sugar and mix until totally combined. Next add in small amounts of flower until it all blends together. 
2. Lay out parchment paper and spread the dough on to it, and knead. Add more flour into it until it becomes clay like. Once it is clay like divide the dough into three equal sections. 
3. Now add the food coloring*. You will need yellow and red, or if you have orange you can use that. If you don't just create the desired shade of orange. To mix the food coloring into the dough, just kneed it until the color is evenly distributed. Once you have achieved the desired colors, wrap the dough in parchment paper and stick in the freezer for about 10 minutes. 
4. Remove from freezer and place on parchment paper. Roll each ball out into ropes and arrange in order of yellow, orange, white. (The dough might become very soft, if this happens just throw back in to the freezer and let it harden back up.)
5. Use a knife and cut the dough into candy corn shapes. 
Storage: Keep in refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve. 
*If your feeling daring, try making different combos of colors and creating your own unique candy corn!
