Children of the Corn Dinner and a Movie


Children of the Corn is a classic creepy movie. I mean a cult of children who worship a demonic spirit named He Who Walks Behind the Rows.. no, thank you. It's absolutely terrifying. What's not as terrifying are these delicious corn-related recipes. Because if you are watching a movie about a demon that lives in corn, you gotta have some corn!

These recipes were created for my 31 Days of Halloween! Also check out more Movie-Themed Recipes here!


Candy Corn Jello Shots Halloween Cocktail Recipe

These candy corn Jello shots are soo cute! I've seen candy corn Jello shots before, but I always found it weird that a candy corn shot tasted like lemons and oranges. Seems wrong, right? So I created these shots that actually taste like a candy corn! I used unflavored gelatin so I could have control of the flavors. There's a vanilla layer, a butterscotch layer, a whipped cream layer, and I used honey for the sweetener. Delicious!

Popcorn Balls Halloween Recipe

Popcorn balls just scream Halloween and are just waiting to be paired with a scary corn-related movie. The freshly popped corn is coated in a simple sea salt caramel sauce for a very delicious treat. If you want to get fancy- roll them around in some sprinkles too.
