cute food.

See this girl? She rocks. I send her emails with links to recipes that say "make me this" and what does she do? She MAKES me stuff! I love her (well...for more reasons than just that, but making me food is awesome). So for "girl day" I sent Lorinda a recipe for Candy Corn Pudding Parfaits. Since she didn't want to transport parfait cups (what? I don't understand...haha) she made it as a layered treat. Yummy no matter what.Have you tried the Candy Corn Kisses or the Pumpkin Spice Kisses? Uh...YUM! Especially the Pumpkin Spice!

If you don't want to follow the link above (you should it has lots of yummy treats) here is the recipe:

Candy Corn Pudding Parfaits


  • 9 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Candy Corn Flavored Candies
  • 1 package (6-serving size) vanilla cook and serve pudding and pie filling mix
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
  • Additional whipped topping and candies for garnish(optional)


1. Remove wrappers from candies. Stir together pudding mix and milk in medium saucepan.

2. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Set aside 1/2 cup pudding; place plastic wrap on surface and refrigerate. Evenly divide 1 cup pudding among 4 to 6 clear parfait glasses. Cover loosely, refrigerate while preparing next step.

3. Add 9 candies to remaining pudding in pan. Stir until candies are melted and mixture is uniform orange color; cool slightly (about 10 minutes). Evenly layer orange pudding onto vanilla pudding in serving dishes.

4. Stir 1/2 cup whipped topping into cooled vanilla pudding. Evenly layer onto orange layer in serving dishes. Cover; refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with additional whipped topping and candy piece, if desired. 4 to 6 servings.


  1. I would ask for her email addy but since I'm in IL and she's probably in WA, it won't work. So, how do I go about finding a Lorinda here? eBay? Craigslist? Classified? Do I list an ad looking for someone that will cook me stuff or do they advertise on their own?

    Teach me, Jerrie, teach me!

    By the way, those things sound delish!

    PS - Could you ask her if she's thought about moving to IL?

  2. Lorinda does rock! I wonder if I sent her recipes if she would be so accommodating (sp?). I'm guessing probably not. So sad for me!

  3. Pumpkin spice kisses!!!??? YIKES! I must have them!!

    Looks delish. I'll have to give it a try!

    I'm doing a Pumpkin "Boston Cream Pie" tonight as an experiment...

  4. mmmm this sounds good. is it as good as the yummy summer parfait we once had ?? I think that would have made a lovley picture, dontya think?

  5. Yummy! I am officially jealous! (And I was scrolling through checking out your Week in the Life photos... they're great!)


Comments are great. They are like the Grande, 2-pump, Cinnamon-dolche, non-fat latte of the computer...Really! Thanks for the bloggin' coffee!
