Candy Corn Fruit Parfaits

Confession: I strongly dislike candy corns. As a kid I was always disappointed to find them in my trick or treat bag. But candy corns are such great inspiration for Halloween treats and decorations, I just had to share this.

You basically layer orange and yellow fruit in clear cups and top with whipped cream. I used mandarin oranges and pineapple because I love the combination, but you can also use mangos, melon, oranges – whatever. These cute little jars I found in Homegoods are perfect to use as cups, but you can use clear disposable plastic cups if you are having a party.

For a whipped topping that is lighter than the average whipped cream yet not full of “fake” ingredients I’ve been making this light whipped topping by whipping my cream and folding in Greek yogurt. Cuts the fat down and tastes delicious!

If you prefer to use whipped topping, go for it or if you want to have this for breakfast I say just top it with vanilla yogurt. But for dessert – I wouldn’t change a thing! Hope you try this, you will LOVE it!!

Ingredients

Light Whipped Topping:

  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt, (I use Chobani)

Parfaits:

  • 2 2/3 cups diced pineapple, fresh or canned
  • 2 2/3 cups jarred mandarin oranges, drained

Instructions

  • To make the lighter whipped cream, place a metal mixing bowl and metal beaters of a hand mixer into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Place the sugar into the mixing bowl and add the whipping cream. Using a hand mixer, beat just until the cream and vanilla reaches stiff peaks, about 2 - 3 minutes. Fold in the Greek yogurt.
  • In 8 oz jars or clear plastic cups place 1/3 cup mandarin oranges in each, then 1/3 cup pineapple. Top each with 3 tablespoons of whipped cream.

  1. I made these last night for my family on the first day of October. My daughter who cannot eat food coloring but loves candy corn loved this in fact my whole family loved this. (Drank the juice from the bottom, loved it) Such a wonderful idea. I think this will be a new fall family favorite. Also I used glass cups and it looked great.

  3. Where did you find the jars?

  4. made this last night – LOVE the topping!!!

  5. I made it using mango and persimmon. Looked beautiful and was so yummy!

  6. I made these two weekends ago for a Lia Sophia party I was hosting! I wanted a healthier twist to my foods and made these. Everyone loved them! Great idea, easy to make, and pretty cheap too!

  7. These are too cute!! Oh I wish I had seen these before yesterday when we hosted our Oct. dinner club! Maybe I'll make these Halloween night for us to enjoy at home.

  8. I like the whipped cream tip. What whipped cream to yogurt ratio have you found works best? Do you sweeten it? Plain yogurt or vanilla? I'm intrigued, and grateful for your wonderful ideas and recipes.

  9. LOVE the idea of folding in greek yogurt to make whipped cream lighter. Thanks so much! Will be trying this asap.

  11. i'm so glad i'm not the only one who hates candy corn! flavored ones aren't bad but i just don't like the originals. however, the giant gummy ones from williams sonoma are my drug. they are SO GOOD. these look yummy too!!!

  12. My granddaughters use their candy corn for art projects. They look great.

  13. These are such a cute idea!

  14. I agree, candy corns are pretty but they sure don't taste like CHOCOLATE (and that's all I wanted for treats LOL)
    This is such a pretty, healthy dessert. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

  15. These are so cute. I like 'seasonal' desserts so will have to try this.

    I love candy corn and could eat an entire bag at one sitting but I try (really!!) to avoid high fructose corn syrup and, of course, that's all those evil little things are.

  16. Awww so cute and healthy! I'm not much of a candy corn fan so these fruit parfaits will definitely make up for my lack of candy corn love!

  17. Umm maybe I'm thick but why is it called candy corn parfait and there's no candy corn? I happen to love candy corn btw. 🙂

    • Just the color pattern. Orange on the bottom, yellow in the middle and white on top!

    • fantastic idea!!! super healthy…. only mix up is candy corn is yellow on bottom orange in middle and white on top 🙂 I will be making these though for my Halloween party this weekend! Can't wait to try the lighter topping.

  18. I love these! What a good idea instead of eating all of that candy corn

  19. These are adorable! And a nice, healthier take on Halloween treats.

  20. I need those little jars! Where can I find them?

  21. I love candy corn and can wolf them down. But your recipe is a better choice. Thanks for sharing the whipped cream recipe as well.
