Candy Corn Cupcakes and Jell-O

I was in the mood for something cute so I decided on candy corn themed treats. I have 2 easy ideas, and they are both treats from boxes, so they are super super simple.

The first one is a cupcake. I used a yellow cake mix divided it in 2 bowls and colored half yellow and half orange. The directions are below.

The second one is Jell-O. One box of lemon and one box of orange topped with whipped cream. The directions are below. Just another way to add some delicious, simple fun to your Halloween.

Candy Corn Cupcake
Recipe Partly from:

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
3 Large Eggs
1/2 cup Butter, not Margarine
1 cup of Water
Yellow and Red Food Coloring
Yellow Cupcake Papers

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in the microwave. Put cake mix, eggs, butter, and water in a large bowl and mix on low for 1 minute and on high for 1 minute.

2. Put half of your batter in a separate bowl. Color half the batter yellow, approx. 50 drops, and half your batter orange, approx. 50 yellow drops and 8 red drops. Mix well. 

3. Fill 18 cupcake papers 1/4 full with yellow and 1/4 more with the orange batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Candy Corn Jell-O

3 oz box Lemon Jell-O
3 oz box Orange Jell-O
Heavy Whipping Cream
Powdered Sugar

1. Prepare lemon Jell-O according to the fast set directions and divide between 5 glasses. Place in fridge for about and hour and a half. 

2. Once the yellow Jell-O has chilled prepare the orange Jell-O according to the fast set directions and pour on top the 5 glasses of set yellow Jell-O. Place in fridge for another hour and a half.

3. Whip enough heavy cream sweetened with powdered sugar to put on top of the 5 glasses.
