candy corn parfait recipe

One of the perks of being a food blogger is that I get invited to use fun products and be as creative as I want with them.  Betty Crocker and Big G Cereal challenged a large group of food bloggers to use their cereals to come up with a fun Halloween treat.  I had a few ideas in my head, I had some complicated pops and cookies, but I thought that this creation was something that I would love to bring to Will’s class Halloween party.  Easy and kid-friendly.  It is so fun and festive and different than the average Halloween cupcake or cookie.  You could put the parfait in clear plastic cups and they would travel really well.

After I finished making these parfaits, Ava wanted some of the Cocoa Puffs that I was using sprinkled over her banana yogurt.  Then it hit me that I could have made this a breakfast parfait, using vanilla yogurt.  How cute would that be for a Halloween brunch?

This fun dessert took about 15 minutes total to make.  It was a huge hit with my under 6 crowd and also the over 30 crowd.  Even if my recipe doesn’t get picked to be featured on the Betty Crocker website, it is a winner.
