My favorite fall treat is candy corn. Mixing a handful of candy corn and a handful of dry roasted peanuts take my favorite snack to a whole new level! Have you tried that yet?
Speaking of candy corn, here’s a fun candy corn themed snack that you can make with your favorite kiddos!
Candy Corn Jello Cups
First, gather the supplies you’ll need.
- 1 box of lemon jello (or another flavor that’s yellow)
- 1 box of orange jello (or another flavor that’s orange)
- Whipped cream (We prefer the spray kind.)
- Candy corn to top your treats
- Containers for your jello cups. We used clear plastic cups, but you could also use clear bowls or mason jars if that’s what you have on hand.
Prepare the yellow jello 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 amongst your containers. Place your jello into refrigerator until it begins to set. Using the “rapid set” method, this took about 30-45 minutes.
When your yellow jello is beginning to set, prepare your orange jello. If you choose the ‘regular’ method, you will need to let it cool down before you start the next step.
When your orange jello is cooled down, pour it on top of the yellow jello. If the yellow has set correctly, the orange jello should sit right on top of the yellow jello.
At this point, we let the jello fully set. I left our cups in the fridge for another two hours while Emma was at youth group. When she got home, our treats were ready for the next step.
Once our jello treats were fully set, we topped them with some yummy whipped cream. If you don’t like whipped cream, another option is to top it with vanilla pudding.
We topped off our whipped cream with some candy corn. Then, it was time to dig in!
What’s your favorite Halloween treat?
