I found a wonderful recipe from Glorious Treats, that pays homage to the the candy corn. I don't really care much for the actual candy but I do love the colors~ so Halloween-ish! Its a very easy recipe and its soooo delish. Definitely doing this one next year;)
- 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup milk or cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 small container (8 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed
- orange and yellow food color
- candy corn (for garnish)
Beat cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer until fully smooth.
Slowly add powdered sugar, then milk (or cream).
Add vanilla. Continue mixing.
Beat about 1 minute on medium to medium-high speed.
Fold cool whip into cream cheese mixture, and stir until fully combined.
Scoop about 1/3 of the Cheesecake Mousse into a bowl, and color orange.
Color another third of the mixture yellow.
Leave the remaining third white.
One color at a time (starting with yellow), scoop mixture into a piping bag or large ziplock bag, and squeeze a layer of the Cheesecake Mousse into small dessert dishes of your choice.
Repeat with orange and then white Mousse.
Refrigerate 30 minutes (or up to 1 day) before serving.
Garnish with candy corn if desired. (I used Jack o' lantern peeps)
Recipe yields 4 moderate servings or 6-8 mini servings.Recipe Source: Glorious Treats
