Fall is my favorite time of year and candy corn is one of my favorite fall treats. And, mixing a handful of candy corn and a handful of dry roasted peanuts takes my favorite snack to a whole new level. Yum!
Try this simple and tasty fall-themed candy corn Jell-O treat with your kids. It’s the perfect snack for fall school days or family movie nights.
Candy Corn Jell-O Treats
First, gather the supplies you’ll need.
- 1 box of lemon Jell-O (or another flavor that’s yellow)
- 1 box of orange Jell-O (or another flavor that’s orange)
- Whipped cream (We prefer the spray kind.)
- Candy corn to top your treats
- Containers for your Jell-O cups. We used clear plastic cups, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
Prepare the yellow Jell-O according to the package directions. We used the “rapid set” method on the back of the box because Emma was anxious to eat her dessert!
Divide the liquid among the containers. Place the Jell-O into the refrigerator until it begins to set. Using the rapid set method, this took about 30-45 minutes.
When the yellow Jell-O is beginning to set, prepare the orange Jell-O. If you choose the regular set method, you will need to let it cool down before you start the next step. After the Jell-O is cool, slowly pour it on top of the yellow Jell-O.
If the yellow has set correctly, the orange Jell-O should sit right on top of the yellow. If the two colors start to mix, let the orange cool a bit more before continuing.
Allow the Jell-O to fully set, top the candy corn Jell-O treats with whipped cream and sprinkle on some candy corn. Now, dig in!
