It doesn’t look like candy corn, but it tastes like it. If you have glass dessert dishes, this dessert or snack is food fun for the harvest season.
It doesn’t taste like candy corn, but looks like it—that’s the fun!
Layering: Unlike the picture, to follow the coloring of candy corn, put the white layer on the bottom, followed by the orange and the yellow on top.
Liqueur: You can add a tablespoon of liqueur to any of the layers (one layer works best; try Grand Marnier in the orange layer or Limoncello in the yellow layer).
Garnish: You can add whipped cream and sprinkles as you like.
RECIPE: CANDY CORN PUDDING
For the white layer: 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk and 2 packages gelatin
For the orange layer: 1 package orange Jell-O
For the yellow layer: 1 package custard pudding or lemon Jell-O
Optional garnish: whipped cream and/or pieces of candy corn
1. PREPARE the white layer. Per package directions, pour water in a small saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin. Allow to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat until the gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sweetened condensed milk. Add to the dish and allow to set for 1/2 hour or more in the fridge.
2. PREPARE the orange layer. Make the Jell-O according to package directions. Let stand 15 minutes; then add to the dishes and allow to set for 1/2 hour or more in the fridge.
3. PREPARE the yellow layer. Make the custard or Jell-O according to package directions. Let stand 15 minutes; then add to the dishes and allow to set for 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.
