One way I know that I am getting old is that I no longer like candy corn.
Like, it was only a couple years ago that I had one of my friends over to make those homemade butterfingers out of candy corn because our husbands said they didn’t like candy corn and we were all “WUT?! YOU DON’T LIKE CANDY CORN?!”
So obviously, we needed to trick them into eating (and enjoying) candy corn.
But now, bleh.
I even bought all those fun ones that came out this year. Pumpkin Spice, Caramel something-or-another, S’mores.
Nope. Hated all of them.
But I do love regular foods dressing up to look like candy corn. I made these cookies a few years ago and I absolutely had to make these Candy Corn Pudding Pops this year because I’m currently eating Fudgesicles like it’s my job and I figured these were kind of close to that.
Super simple – you use box pudding mixes and then you just layer them in popsicle molds and freeze overnight. These don’t taste like candy corn (if you can find candy corn pudding, go for it) but I used a cheesecake pudding for the white layer (white chocolate would also work) and then french vanilla with food coloring for the other two layers.
They turned out super cute and my kids were obsessed.
