Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousse

You may think this time of year is all about the Pumpkin spice, but there are many yummy flavours that go nicely with Fall and Halloween. We are always on the hunt for a sweet treat that fits the Fall theme. Something yummy to offer the kids on play-dates, serve to guests as a dessert or to just enjoy, well just because. This yummy dessert is great for Halloween and any celebration this time of year!

Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousse

Recipe yields 4 moderate servings or 6-8 mini servings


1 8 oz. package cream cheese

½ cup powdered sugar

¼ cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 8 oz. container Cool Whip, thawed

orange and yellow food color

candy corn for garnish

Candy Corn Cheesecake Mousse



  1. Beat cream cheese in a bowl with an electric mixer until fully smooth.  Slowly add powdered sugar, then milk.  Add vanilla and continue mixing.  Beat about 1 minute on medium to medium-high speed.  Fold cool whip into cream cheese mixture, and stir until fully combined.
  2. Scoop about 1/3 of the cheesecake mousse into a bowl, and color orange.  Color another third of the mixture yellow.  Leave the remaining third white.  One color at a time (starting with yellow), scoop mixture into a piping bag or large ziplock bag, and squeeze a layer of the cheesecake mousse into small dessert dishes of your choice.  Repeat with orange and then white Mousse.
  3. Refrigerate 30 minutes (or up to 1 day) before serving.  Garnish with candy corn if desired.
