Candy Corn Jell-O Salad

by Laura

I have been seeing candy corn inspired recipes everywhere lately and was inspired to do my own for Halloween dinner week.  I thought it would be fun to do a layer Jell-O salad using those candy corn colors.  I did my in individual servings in custard cups but you can always make it in a 9 x 9 baking dish too.
Not only does the salad have the fun layers but it tastes delicious.  It begins with some island pineapple flavored Jell-O with some crushed pineapple mixed in.  Next is a layer of orange Jell-O mixed mixed with some whipped cream to make a creamy orange layer.  Then it is all topped off with whipped cream.  So yummy and fruity – it could even pass for dessert.
I also have a great giveaway going on today with some detail’s about my recent trip to Montana.  Be sure to check it out and enter!

Candy corn treats have been very popular this year! I made a Candy Corn Breakfast Parfait and shared it as part of my Halloween week. This Candy Corn Jello Salad looks like a great desert option, and I am thinking would be neat made in a Jello mold.
