Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousse

I’m forgoing a Friday cocktail this week and opting instead for this deliciously seasonal Halloween gem, Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousse. You don’t have to like candy corn to like this dessert. In fact, if you like cheesecake or cream cheese frosting, you will be in sweet, fluffy, creamy heaven. Cream cheese is mixed with powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and whipped topping to make a sinful yet light treat. The layers of yellow, orange, and white make for a cute-as-a-button presentation but, like any Halloween costume, this is just a facade: they are all the same flavor. Leave the food coloring out to make these desserts any time of the year. Make these this weekend and you’ll impress kids and adults alike. Get a spoon and dig in!

The ingredients:

Beat cream cheese until smooth and add in powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.

Fold in whipped topping and separate into three different bowls.

Add yellow food coloring to one bowl and orange food coloring to another bowl. Scoop each color of mousse into freezer or storage bags for easy layering into glasses.

Carefully pipe yellow mousse into the bottom of 4 glasses. Tap the bottom of the glass with your palm to help even out the mousse, if necessary. Repeat with the orange mousse and then the white mousse. Refrigerate until ready to serve, then top with a piece of candy corn.
