Okay…so we did not actually make these with candy corn, but they kind of look like candy corn right? These are very similar to our Fourth of July popsicles but made to look like candy corn. A fun new twist for a theme of Candy Corn Treats. We used a recipe from Kraft which can be found here and made a few of our own changes. Or you could make your own using colored juice or Kool-Aid.
Here is the recipe from Kraft with our changes included…
Candy Corn Popsicles:
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Orange Flavor Gelatin
1 cup sugar, divided
2 cups boiling water, divided
ice cubes 2 cups cold water, divided
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
COMBINE dry orange gelatin mix and 1/2 cup of the sugar in medium bowl. Add 1 cup of the boiling water; stir at least 2 min. until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to 1 cup of the cold water to measure 2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is completely melted. Pour evenly into 16 (5-oz.) paper or plastic cups, adding about 1/4 cup of the gelatin to each cup. Freeze 1 hour.
MEANWHILE, combine dry yellow gelatin mix and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in medium bowl. Add remaining 1 cup boiling water; stir at least 2 min. until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to remaining 1 cup cold water to measure 2cups. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is completely melted. Refrigerate 1 hour.
SPOON about 3 Tbsp. of the whipped topping over orange gelatin in each cup; top evenly with yellow gelatin, adding about 1/4 cup of the gelatin to each cup. Freeze 1hour or until almost firm. Insert wooden pop stick or plastic spoon into center of each cup for handle. Freeze an additional 4 hours or overnight. To remove pops from cups, place bottoms of cups under warm running water for 15 sec. Press firmly on bottoms of cups to release pops. (Do not twist or pull pop sticks as you may separate the white layer from the others.) Store leftover pops in freezer.
