Snacks that start with C - Candy Corn Cups

Candy corn: the quintessential sweet treat for fall.

But though it may be yummy, candy corn isn’t the healthiest snack choice for your little one.

This delicious alternative bears the colors of fall without all the sugar–and it’s still sweet enough to please the “sweetest tooth” in your house.

Made from wholesome ingredients like yogurt and fruit, candy corn cups pack a sweet punch that moms can feel good about giving to their kids.

We promise…this one is a winner!

This fun ABC Snack recipe will be a great addition to your fall festivities.

I love this idea! I’m not a fan of candy corn but using the candy corn to make the letter c is awesome! I think my children might like the fruit cups of candy corn, especially if there is whipped cream (although they eat yogurt!). I could see my children using the candy corn to make other letters too. Thanks for sharing!

Strange but true, we do this with jelly( I think it’s jell-o in USA?). And served with homemade custard. We put the fruit in the jelly until it’s set, and then eat😁. And for birthday treats, we mix in some condensed milk in the jelly with the fruit. Yes, sweet and decadent but it is a treat for the birthday boy/girl on that day🍧🎂
