Candy Corn Jello cups are a super easy and festive fall treat. Made with pineapple and orange jello, topped with whipped cream, they are to-die-for!
Oh my goodness, I love fall treats. At least once a week, you will find me in the kitchen making some kind of festive dessert. My daughter and I make Monster Pretzel Hugs almost weekly. We have also made Halloween Dirt Cups and Super Easy Spider Halloween Cookies recently.
A new favorite, these layered Candy Corn Jello Cups are super easy to make. They’re made up of pineapple jello, orange jello, and cool whip.
Since Candy Corn is typically around for for the entirety of fall, these treats add a festive flair to Halloween or Thanksgiving tables. (Maybe even Christmas, if you ask Buddy the Elf.) Plus, in my opinion, they taste way better than actual candy corn!
Next time you’re at the store pick up a few boxes of Jello and some cool whip and whip up these treats. (Pun intended.) Make sure to check out all of our fun Halloween desserts on our Halloween page.

How to Make Layered Candy Corn Jello Cups
- Island Pineapple Jello
- Orange Jello
- Cool Whip
- Orange and Yellow Sprinkles (optional)
Other Items Needed
- Clear Dessert Cups
- Gallon Sized Ziploc Bag (optional)
Prepare pineapple Jello according to package directions.
Once it’s dissolved and mixed, pour evenly into dessert cups. (Photo 1)
Refrigerate cups for at least 1 hour. (Photo 2)
Prepare orange jello and pour on top of the yellow layer. (Photo 3) Again, refrigerate for at least two hours.
Top with cool whip.
To pipe the cool whip into a swirl, cut the corner off of a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Spoon cool whip into the bag and use it to swirl cool whip into each jello cup.
Add orange and yellow sprinkles, for extra flair.
As a sidenote: can I just tell you how much I’m loving these dessert cups? They have been proving very useful. We use them to make these layered jello treats, yogurt parfaits, or just to serve snacks in for parties.

This is such a fun idea for fall and Halloween! I love how easy they are to make, they’re a perfect snack for after school or a gathering.
Adorable! Absolutely perfect for my next Autumnal get-together! Love the candy corn theme without “actually” being candy corn!
These are so fun and so easy to make and as someone who hates candy corn, maybe I’m the only one, I LOVE these!
