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.
