Candy Corn Cream Cups





I am so excited to be posting over here on Doodles and Doilies.

I am Amanda Joy and I run the blog Joy in the Jumble.

I love my family, baking, crafting, photography, and my shop Bossy Sprockets



Halloween is my favorite time of year.

It was a blast to try out a new treat, that I can now share with you:)

These little dessert cups are the perfect size for the quick, sweet fix.

The layering of flavors blend well together and help in making it so that it isn't overly sweet.







Ingredients


Yellow Layer

1 3oz package Instant Vanilla Pudding

2 cups Milk


Orange Layer

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1 1/2 cups Candy Corn


White Layer

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

Coordinating Sprinkles

1 Candy Corn for each cup





Directions


Yellow Layer
Mix milk and pudding together in a bowl according to package directions, and let it start to firm up slightly.


Place 2 Tablespoons of the pudding in the bottom of the dessert cup.


Orange Layer

Make the first part of the orange layer the night before or at least 4 hours before.


On medium heat, pour the whipping cream in a saucepan and stir constantly to prevent scorching. Once the whipping cream is heated, pour in the candy corn, again stirring constantly until the candy has disintegrated and turned the cream a pumpkin orange.


Remove from burner, bring to room temperature, then place in the refirgerator for 4 hours or overnight.


Once the orange layer is fully chilled, place it in a mixing bowl and whip until soft peaks form.


Place 2-3 Tablespoons on top of the yellow layer


White Layer
Pour whipping cream into a new mixing bowl and whip until soft peaks form. Add the powdered sugar, and whip on high speed until desired consistency is achieved. Be careful not to overwhip, as it will begin to break down.


Scoop a dollop or use an open star frosting tip in a pastry bag.


Sprinkle with desired toppings.


The orange layer is super sweet, just it is tempered nicely by the vanilla pudding and whipped topping in each bite.


This rich dessert is the perfect portion size, to not go into a sugar coma:)
