Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousse #HalloweenTreatsWeek

by Erin

Like it or not, candy corn is an iconic Halloween treat. Thankfully everyone can enjoy this cheesecake flavored mousse that just looks like candy corn!

This post and recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.

We are halfway through #HalloweenTreatsWeek with plenty of goodies left to share! Today’s recipe is simple but still fun and festive. Years ago I fell in love with the ability to create mousse using cream cheese and never looked back, this recipe being no exception. All I did differently was to divide it into 3 colors and topped it off with a cute little candy ghost holding a piece of candy corn. But that piece of candy corn is the only thing that actually tastes like candy corn – I was merely going for the visual representation.

However, speaking of that piece of candy corn on top, I was a little disappointed to notice that candy corn doesn’t follow a gradient of orange to yellow to white, which is how I layered the mousse. Instead in order to be anatomically correct I should have done yellow first, then orange, and then white. Whoops. Granted you may not have ever noticed that if I hadn’t pointed it out. But that’s what I do, point out my mistakes for your judgement.
