Fall Candy Corn Fruit Cocktail

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

It's time for fall recipes!  I have been making a couple recipes and went on a hunt for a few more simple, easy to make recipes that are kid-friendly for snacks or maybe for a fall gathering.  One that I love and my kids recently enjoyed is this healthy, candy corn-inspired fruit cocktail.  Candy corn is a popular candy during this fall season.  The color combination is well-known and screams autumn.  If you haven't tried this already, I suggest making this easy cocktail either for your kids or just to indulge yourself.  I originally made it to include in a roundup of fall recipes published at Jacksonville Moms Blog.

How to Make Candy Corn Fruit Cocktail

 What You Need:

  • 5-6 slices of Orange-colored fruit like mandarin oranges or peaches
  • Half a cup of Yellow-colored fruit like pineapple
  • Whip Cream
  • Orange and yellow-colored sprinkles, optional for topping
  • Candy Corn for topping, optional

  1. Use a glass bowl or cup to make cocktail.  You can start with placing either orange or yellow-colored fruit in cup or bowl.  To make it match the candy corn exactly, start with yellow fruit first. If you are using canned fruit, strain the juice. 
  2. Add in the orange-colored fruit.  Strain the juice from this if you need to, as well.
  3. Swirl on a heap of whip cream from the can to the top of the cocktail.
  4. Dash on sprinkles or throw on an actual Candy Corn as a topping.
