Just popping in quick today with these tasty treats - Candy Corn Jello Cups - they are a great last minute addition to any Halloween party or make a great after school snack for the kiddos.  The layers of lemon and orange jello go well together and are topped off with a homemade vanilla jello mixture.  Just the right amount of sweetness in this light snack!

These will take a bit of time as you need to wait for each jello layer to set before adding the next one - I think total it took about 4 hours.  They are so worth it though!  Enjoy!
