Apple pie is a classic Fall dessert. We decided to keep the heat out of the kitchen, take those flavors, & turn them into a cool creamy dessert instead. Apple pie cheesecake parfaits are a cinch to whip up & are bound to be the season’s new favorite sweet treat.
A stunning dessert, these Strawberry Pretzel Salad Parfaits put a creamy new spin on the classic strawberry pretzel salad. Featuring layers of flavor infused freshly whipped cream, buttery cinnamon pretzels, and ripe berries- it’s a dessert destined to impress.
This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
I know, I know, there’s nothing at all healthy about the typical little candy corns I love to over indulge int, but here I can offset all the sugar — a little bit, anyway — with these inspired candy corn fruit parfaits.
The sons have been asking for this all week, for dessert! And any day I can pass off fruit as a delicious dessert, that they actually RE-request, is a great day.
And I know there’s those crazies (kidding!) out there who don’t particularly care for candy or sugary sweets. Well, this is a perfect sweet treat for them while still being able to be festive.
In all honesty though, candy corn just might be our favorite Halloween treat (well, aside from those fun-size Butterfinger bars) so it makes sense that we’d be all about a candy corn-inspired confection.
I mean it’s a fruit parfait that’s every bit as sweet and colorful as the real thing. The best part: they’re super easy to scare up!
Note to self: Monitor the sons when there’s a ratio involved between the fruit portion and the sugary one! They went a little cool-whip happy, but I can’t really blame them.

Candy Corn Fruit Parfaits
- 1 cup pineapple chunks in 100% juice I used 1 Dole fruit cup
- 1 cup Mandarin oranges in 100% juice I used 1 Dole fruit cup
- 1 small container of non-fat Cool Whip
- 2 small bowls or cups to assemble parfaits
- Strain the pineapples and Mandarin oranges. Spoon half of the pineapple chunks into the bottom of the dish, creating a solid layer.
- Spoon half of the Mandarin oranges on top of the pineapples.
- Top with a dollop (obviously the sons and I need to re-visit that definition), or two, of Cool Whip
