RECIPE | Creamy Candy Corn Jello Cups for Halloween

If you’re looking for an easy and edible Halloween project for the kids this year then you’ll definitely want to make these creamy candy corn Jello cups. They look like candy corn, even get dressed up like candy corn but don’t taste like it at all … which is especially nice for folks that really don’t care for the candy corn flavor.

It looks like pudding but these yellow, orange and white desserts are actually made out of Jello and an extra ingredient to give them a more solid color and creamy flavor.

    This is so cute! I love the Jello and Cool Whip mixed together and I like the idea that it won’t taste like candy corn. Very clever!
