Candy Corn Inspired Dessert - Halloween Fun!

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays.  Unfortunately it's not one I have many family recipes to draw upon so I have gotten creative. 

This year I went down to our local Smart & Final (I always love going here when I'm creating a new recipe!).  The selection and sizes of cooking and baking items just can't be found at other stores.

Candy Corn is a favorite in our house so I got to work on creating a candy corn inspired dessert.  Being super easy, quick, and easy to do on a mass scale - it's the perfect dessert for that Halloween Party!

Ingredients:
  • 1 Package of Vanilla Pudding (or any yellow colored custard)
  • 1 Package of Orange Jello
  • 1 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon of Sugar

  • 1 Package of Candy Corns (for decoration)
  • 1 Package of cups (they should be whatever size you plan on serving in - First Street by Smart & Final has a great selection) 

Directions:

Cook the Jello according to the package (note this may need to be done the night before so that it is fully set prior to assembly). 

Cook the pudding according to the package.  Set aside and allow to cool completely.

In a mixer, add one cup of heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of sugar.  Mix until it has firm peaks. 

In the serving cups, layer in the vanilla pudding up about 1/4 of the cup. 

Next add small spoonfuls of the orange jello until the cup is about 3/4 full. 


Put the whip cream in a pastry bag with a large tip (you can also use a ziploc bag with a small opening cut at the corner). 

Top the whip cream (as you would top a cupcake) on the orange layer.  Add candy corns as garnish.  Serve and enjoy!
