What are candy corn pudding cups?

Candy corn pudding cups are festive treats perfect for fall and Halloween. They are made of layers of vanilla-flavored pudding to look like adorable candy corn. They are then topped with cool whip, sanding sugar, and candy corn to make a fun Halloween treat.

Ingredients: 

  • 2 (5.1-ounce) packages of vanilla instant pudding
  • 6 cups of cold milk
  • Orange food coloring
  • 1 (8-ounce) frozen cool whip tub, thawed
  • Candy corn
  • Orange and yellow sanding sugar
  • 7 (9-ounce) clear plastic cups

How to Make Candy Corn Pudding Cups 

  • In a large bowl, pour both packages of vanilla pudding and add the milk. Then mix according to package instructions. This will make 6 cups of pudding.

  • Divide the pudding so there are 2 cups of pudding in one bowl and 4 cups of pudding in another.
  • In the bowl with the 4 cups of pudding, add 5 drops of orange food coloring, mixing between each drop until desired orange color. No need to color the pudding in the other bowl.

  • Then in a plastic cup, add 4 spoonfuls of the yellow vanilla pudding for the bottom layer. Then 8 spoonfuls of the orange-colored vanilla pudding for the second layer. (The pudding ratio should be about ⅓ yellow and ⅔ orange, with a little extra room for the cool whip on top.)

  • Next, cover the top with the thawed cool whip. 

  • Finally, add candy corn and sanding sugar on top of the cool whip.

  • Serve chilled or at room temperature.

  • Store any leftover pudding in an airtight container for 5-7 days.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Candy corn is my favorite during fall and Halloween. Some people don’t love it as much as the rest of us. If this is the case, you can omit the candy corn from the top of some of the pudding cups if you prefer. 
  • Make a giant candy corn pudding trifle. If you want to wow your guests, create a large trifle with the same gorgeous layers. You will need to double or triple the recipe if you opt to do this. 
  • You can use other pudding flavors if you would like. Try banana, lemon, or other yellow-colored puddings. You want to be sure to use a pudding flavor that is light in color so that it can be easily changed with food coloring. 
  • In order to get nice even layers of pudding, gently tap the cup on the counter to even out the layer before adding the next layer.

Storage

You will want to store these in the fridge, covered. These will last about 4 days. It is best to add the whipped topping and candy corn right before serving.

Can I eat these warm or cold? 

I prefer to serve these chilled. The flavors really stand when chilled, but you can also serve them at room temperature if you prefer.
