Candy corn is by far my favorite Halloween candy and I am pretty sure it has rubbed off on my kids! I was so excited when I discovered candy corn Oreos last week, and the bag was gone within three days. I eat candy corn by the handfuls, but I have had some major will power the last two days and have stayed away from the big bag in my kitchen. Since I have such a great love for these sweet and delicious bites of pure sugar, I thought it would be appropriate to do a post solely about candy corn! I will start with a super scrumptious dessert that my kids (and I) absolutely love! As I have mentioned before in my Sand Pudding post, I have a major love for cheesecake and the dessert here has a very similar taste! If you like cheesecake, try this easy recipe!
- 1 package 8 oz. cream cheese
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 small container 8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed
- orange and yellow food color
- candy corn for garnish
- Beat cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer until fully smooth Slowly add powdered sugar, then milk
- Add vanilla and continue mixing
- Beat about 1 minute on medium to medium-high speed
- Fold cool whip into cream cheese mixture, and stir until fully combined
- Scoop about 1/3 of the cheesecake dessert into a bowl, and color orange Color another third of the mixture yellow
- Leave the remaining third white
- One color at a time (starting with yellow), scoop mixture into a large ziplock bag, and squeeze a layer of the dessert into small dessert dishes of your choice
- Repeat with orange and then white
- Refrigerate 30 minutes (or up to 1 day) before serving
- Garnish with candy corn if desired.

Next up is an adorable candy corn banner that you can download at: In His Grip. I used star brads to connect each triangle, but you could also use ribbon. It is a super cute (and free) decoration and I love the scrapbook look of the banner!

You can use candy corn, candles, and any glass or vase to add a colorful decoration to your table! It is fun to use different sizes and shapes for the glasses and vases. Put some candy corn in a container, add the candle, and top it off with more candy corn! You could also use a plate filled with candy corn and mix in some tea lights.
