Candy Corn Remix

One can only eat so many pieces of candy corn before the sickeningly sweet, tongue-covering film inside the mouth requires the need for something, anything even remotely close to healthy. When the littles have OD’d on too much fall and Halloween goodness, here’s a snack that adds a little more fruit and a tad less sugar to their diet. Whipped cream optional, but oh so good!

Make this version of candy corn using mandarin oranges, pineapple slices and a dollop of whipped cream–in candy corn color sequential order, of course!

Love It Or Leave It

Candy corn, the fall version of those blessed marshmallow Peeps, can bring forth some strong emotional reactions. Whether it be the greatest fall snack to enter our homes or the  most disgusting, sugar-filled creation that ever came to be, it’s certainly a love it or hate it kind of treat. Luckily (or not, depending how you look at it!), this household loves to grab it by the fistful and nibble away until the bowl (candy corn-shaped, of course!) is empty. For you haters out there feeling that part of your autumn existence isn’t quite complete without having an affinity for the aforementioned artificial goodness, there’s no need to despair–you can enjoy the same yellow, orange and white goodness without dipping into the Brach’s bag! I introduce to you Candy Corn Jello– a fall treat for all to love!

To make this kinda candy corn, combine 2/3 C boiling water with 3 oz package lemon Jello. Pour into desired cup and chill until hardened. Repeat with 3 oz orange Jello, cooling first before pouring over lemon. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
