Step 2: Preparation
Next, you'll need to add water. The amount of water you add depends on the thickness of syrup you desire.
For thin syrup, add an amount of water equal to the amount of candy corn.
For a really thick syrup, add less than the amount of candy corn -- up to half as much water as you added candy corn. For example, if you chopped one cup candy corn, use one half cup water for the thickest syrup possible.
