Hello! Thank you SO much to Sheryl for having me over today to share a fun, yummy recipe with you, just in time for Halloween.
For those of you who don’t know, I’m Krista and I’m the everyday mom in Everyday Mom’s Meals. I started my blog in May 2010 and in the past 2 years, a whole wonderful world of foodie love has been opened up to me. I am a full time wife and mother to my husband of almost 10 years and our 8 year old son. I focus on simple, family style food that is perfect for everyone from the novice chef to experienced home cook. Some of our best memories as a family have been made around the dinner table, and I hope one of my recipes brings your family happiness and full stomachs very soon! Please stop by Everyday Mom’s Meals any time, and you can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest too.
This recipe is totally Halloween inspired. I love finding fun, festive desserts to treat my son with this time of year. Like me, he is a big butterscotch fan, and like his father, he loves candy corn. And then my friend told me about how her daughter likes to put candy corn in pudding and/or yogurt. Plus sometimes, she mixes in a little cereal. I decided all of these sounded like a parfait waiting to happen, perfect for little hands. These would be great for a classroom or Halloween party, or even something sweet before you head out trick or treating. (Like the kids need more sweet, right??!!) I wish you all a very safe, delicious and Happy Halloween.
Candy Corn Parfaits
1 (3.4oz) box instant butterscotch pudding
1 (3.4oz) box instant vanilla pudding
4 c. cold milk, divided
Captain Crunch Halloween Cereal (Original would work too)
Mix each pudding mix with 2 cups cold water. Whisk for 2 minutes each. Allow to set in fridge for 10 minutes. In small glasses, or parfait cups, add enough cereal to cover bottom. Spoon in about 2 TBS butterscotch pudding. Sprinkle with a few candy corn. Spoon in about 2 TBS vanilla pudding. Add more cereal. Spoon in 2 TBS butterscotch pudding. Top with Cool Whip and a few candy corn. (These are the layers I enjoy. You can switch them up any way you like!) Chill until serving.
*NOTE* One of the advantages to using the Halloween cereal is the orange pieces turn green in milk, and they will in your pudding parfaits too. I like this because it’s just more festive. If you don’t want the green color “oozing” through, use the original. Also, DON’T leave the parfait in the refrigerator longer than 30 minutes. The cereal will become soggy.
