Halloween is seriously one of my favorite holidays!

I love getting the kids dressed up to trick or treat, carving or decorating pumpkins and making fun Halloween themed foods for snack or dinner the weekend before the holiday to celebrate.

Today's post is one of those fun Halloween recipes. It's actually super easy too, which makes it even better!

Are you a candy corn lover? My daughter Ella, and I are!

This Candy Corn Fruit Salad dessert doesn't actually taste like candy corn, but just layered in individual serving dishes to look like candy corn. We had to top it off with some pieces of candy corn, to make it even more festive!

My daughter helped make this recipe and your kiddos can too. Even the little ones! They can help whip the cream with the hand mixer, stir in the fruit, and layer it in their own dishes for serving. It's so much fun to get them interested in trying and making new recipes!

The mascarpone adds a delicious burst of flavor to the fruit salad. The fruit and marshmallows add some texture. It's simply delicious and unique!

  1. I just love this idea so much! It's not your ordinary Halloween treat, it's better because it's so unique. Plus I won't feel so guilty eating it because it has fruit!
