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!
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!
The leaves on our neighborhood trees are changing colors right before our very eyes. Packer season, pumpkin spice lattes and open windows have arrived! Running outside is finally tolerable without overheating, and the kiddos have to once again listen to nagging reminders about taking a coat with them before they leave the house. Shorter nights, soup suppers and everything orange are soon to come!
