  • 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...
