A candy corn parfait is the perfect light snack for your little trick-or-treaters before they head out on candy collection duty and a fun party appetizer for people to spoon in between sweets. You could also bring individual servings to a school Halloween party with a piece of candy corn on top of every cup!
For a Halloween party at home, consider a DIY yogurt station with pineapple chunks, melon, and yogurt and let guests make their own candy corn parfaits. Offer add-ons like heart-healthy walnuts and almonds, whole oat granola, or mini dark chocolate chips to boost the flavor and fun-factor even more. You could try offering a few of Chobani’s fruity flavors – their pineapple yogurt would work really well with the fresh fruit.
Have a wonderful Halloween filled with candy, costumes, friends and family. Be safe, enjoy your sweet treats, and try to slip something nourishing in there somewhere, okay? 🙂
Happy Halloween from The Soul of Health and Sweet Foodie!
Here’s the recipe and original post from my friend and Tuesday partner-in-crime Abigail at The Soul of Health:
Happy happy Technique Tuesday!!
I hope you’re having a wonderful day!
This whole week on The Soul of Health I wanted to focus on giving tips and tricks to help you enjoy Halloween in a more nutrient dense manner. Or just survive it without eating 17 bags of candy!
In honor of Halloween Week and the delicious yet not so nutrient dense Candy Corn – Here is my Candy Corn makeover…
The Candy Corn Parfait!!
This parfait is fun, simple and a perfect afternoon snack before heading out to brave the neighborhood. This will keep your tummies full and will help keep your kids focused on the task ahead – Get to the best houses before all the
full size candy bars good flavored floss containers are gone!
This is a fun food activity the whole family can make together! You can usually find prechopped pineapple and cantaloupe in the produce department if you don’t feel like wrestling with chopping a whole pineapple!
Candy Corn Parfait:
- Chopped Pineapple
- Chopped Cantaloupe (Can use oranges or any other orange fruit you can think of)
- Greek Yogurt (I used Plain Nonfat Fage with a drizzle of honey)
Layer chopped pineapple on the bottom of your favorite glass or clear plastic cup (most likely the safest idea if young kids are involved). Then add a layer of chopped cantaloupe. Top layers with a dollop of Greek yogurt. To sweeten things up, you can add a drizzle of honey or use Vanilla or Honey flavored yogurt. Dig in!
