Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and it is the perfect holiday for making all kinds of treats. Unfortunately most of these treats involve lots of candy, which means they aren’t very healthy! This Candy Corn Fruit and Yogurt Parfait is a healthy Halloween treat, with just a little bit of candy.
I love yogurt parfaits, and by layering fruit in Mason jars you can create a dessert that looks just like candy corn but is much better for you.
I used mango for the bottom yellow layer, mandarin oranges for the middle and topped it off with Greek yogurt. The candy corn on top is optional, although it does make it nice and colorful. The candy corn also makes it appeal to kids, who love the idea of a little candy to mix into their yogurt.
This is a perfect make ahead treat, either for an afternoon snack or for a quick and easy breakfast. But it you are making it ahead of time leave off the candy corn and add it right before serving. If you don’t the candy corn will bleed into the yogurt and then the Candy Corn Fruit and Yogurt Parfait won’t be as pretty.
