Candy Corn Shakes

Candy Corn Milkshakes

Aren't these adorable?! My kids loved them! I was mother of the year when I made them. Of course, they didn't look as good as these, but they didn't see the original to begin with! Here is the recipe from none other than Mels Kitchen Cafe. If you go on her main page, she has a cute button called "Spooky Eats" full of great Halloween snackies.

1 quart vanilla ice cream
Orange and yellow food coloring
Clear plastic or glass cups
Lightly sweetened whipped cream
Sprinkles, if desired

Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften for about 20-30 minutes. Spoon 1/3 of the ice cream into a medium bowl. Use orange food coloring, gel or liquid, to color the ice cream orange as desired. Stir well to mix and color.

In another medium bowl, spoon another 1/3 of the ice cream and color it yellow as desired. Stir well to mix and color.

Stir the remaining vanilla ice cream until it is smooth and creamy.

Spoon yellow ice cream into the bottom of a plastic cup, to fill the cup 1/3 full. You may need to wipe the cup down if streaks are in the upper part of the cup from spooning it in. Flatten it out as well as you can, trying to eliminate any air bubbles on the side.

Spoon in orange ice cream on top of the yellow to fill the cup about 2/3 full. Again, wipe down the inside of the cup, if needed, and smooth out the top of the orange ice cream. Top with vanilla ice cream to within 1/4-inch of the top of the cup. Smooth out the top.

Top with whipped cream and sprinkles, if desired. Freeze until ready to serve.
