Candy Corn

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup nonfat milk powder
Food coloring

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Sift the confectioners sugar, salt and milk powder. Add to the pot and stir until it is combined

Once it cools, divide the dough into 3 pieces. Add desired food coloring to the doughs (yellow, orange).  One of the doughs should be white. Once this is done, roll each piece out into a rope. When you have 3 ropes, push them together so it forms 1 wide rope. Cut into triangles.
