Healthy Halloween Candy Corn Fruit Cups



Hello Friends:
(Small rant) I want to start off by saying this recipe did not want to allow me to be great. Let me start off by saying that this recipe was weeks in the making. In my latest Dollar Tree haul. I mentioned how I purchased candy corns for a recipe I was going to do. Well, let's just say it took a little longer than expected. I first went on the hunt for fresh tangerines. My local store did not have any so I purchased canned mandarin oranges. I see that I'm really starting to be a perfectionist, sorta kind of. I had a vision in mind. I had no issue finding the candy corns, I settled for the canned mandarin oranges and now I was on the hunt for clear glasses. I had no idea how hard it would be to find clear cups. I had in mind little small dessert cups. Typically, I could find a set at my local Homegoods. I went to several stores and only found regular glasses. I went to my local Dollar Tree to see if I could find the stemless wine glasses (I think that's what they're called.) They were out of stock. I was willing to settle for the clear plastic tumbler cups. I really wanted some without the rim my local Walmart didn't sell them. On a whim, I stopped at my local thrift store and found a super cute tasting set. Bingo! Just what I was looking for. If I were serving these to friends and family I wouldn't put them in a large glass. I wanted to present them how I would serve them. That's just me... One more thing. The cups do not have the candy corn topping because I found them after recording the tutorial. sigh.
Thank you for reading my rant . I just want you guys to know that I really do appreciate you stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

  20. This sure looks good. My twins and I love fruits but aside from just slicing the fruits up, I want to make sure that the food looks presentable for them too. This definitely fits my criteria!
