Candy Corn Fruit Cups
For my daughter’s school Halloween party today, I signed up to bring fruit since I knew that I would take the time to make it festive instead of just being “boring fruit”. Maybe that will encourage the kids to eat the fruit and not just the treats. Today I made Candy Corn Fruit Cups.
Several times over the years I have had to bring fruit to my daughter’s Halloween parties. When she was in preschool I carved oranges into Jack-o-Lanterns. Then, two years ago for my daughter’s Girl Scout Halloween Party I made Candy Corn Fruit on toothpicks.
My plan was to make the same Candy Corn Fruit that I made in the past. However, when I went to the store, the banana selection was not good (they would be ready to eat next week). Rather than try another store, I decided to create an alternate Candy Corn Fruit. I found these Candy Corn Fruit Cups, but they seemed much to big to make for 25 kids plus siblings and parents. I decided to scale them down to a smaller cup. I was hoping to find plastic shot-glasses to make them in, but didn’t see any at Meijer. I did find condiment cups which worked fine. Even better they came with lids which were perfect for stacking them for transport and serving.
Our Candy Corn Fruit Cups were easy to make with pineapples, mandarin oranges, and whipped topping. I prepped all of the fruit first so that I could assemble all of the cups at the same time.
- 2 Pre-Cored Pineapples
- 13 Mandarin Oranges
- 8 oz Frozen Whipped Topping, thawed
- 50 condiment cups
- Slice Pineapple into thin rings (about 1/8") and cut into wedges that will fit in your condiment cups
- Peel mandarin oranges and separate into segments
- Place 2-3 slices of pineapple in the bottom of each cup
- Add 2 mandarin orange segments over the pineapple
- Top each cup with 1T whipped topping
- Spread topping with a spatula and cover each cup.
- I do not recommend using fresh whipped cream unless you will be serving immediately
