Candy Corn Pudding - Quick Halloween Treat

We had a few friends stop by for dinner tonight on just a moment’s notice. Since I didn’t have a menu planned, I had to whip up a quick dessert.

I simply took plain vanilla instant pudding and mixed it with food coloring. I used classic yellow food coloring gel for one layer. I used neon orange food coloring gel, with just a couple drops of classic red to darken it a bit, in the other layer.

Mixed it thoroughly and then used freezer bags with the corners snipped as piping bags. The top layer is Cool Whip (also piped)!

Randomly scattered some colored gum balls that were left over from baby.sweets4ever’s birthday party and my dessert setting was complete!

What a fun dessert (and thanks for the flashback)!

Sounds yummy! I wonder how it would be if you did butterscotch for the darker layer and kept vanilla for the lighter one? Will have to keep this in mind for our Halloween party.
