  • My favorite season is here!! It’s finally time to break out the Halloween treats and goodies, with candy corn being the main one!

    I love the butterscotch taste of candy corn. There are so many ways you can incorporate them into your Halloween desserts! I’m always on the look out for party-friendly desserts – especially ones that you can set out on the table for easy serving or to add a gorgeous aesthetic to the dessert table.

    Candy Corn Trifles are particularly fun and festive using Halloween colors and Halloween’s most popular candy. They’re layered with Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ white cake, Betty Crocker whipped white frosting and candy corn, giving them the perfect sweetness for any Halloween party!

    Let's put them together...

    Step 1: Gather all your ingredients.

    Step 2: Divide the Betty Crocker cake batter into two bowls. Using food coloring, dye one yellow and one orange.

    Step 3: Bake cupcakes for 10 to 15 minutes at 350F.

    Step 4: Once the cupcakes are baked and cooled, cut them in half (horizontally) and set aside.

    Step 5: In mini mason jars, layer a yellow cupcake, orange cupcake, frosting, and a sprinkle of candy corn.

    Step 6: Repeat once and frost the top.

    Step 7: Add candy corn to the top for garnish.
