Today I’m sharing a fun Halloween cream puff recipe. I created these Candy Corn Cream Puffs for my new e-book, Simply Sweet Dream Puffs. There wasn’t room in the cookbook for this recipe and it got cut in the final draft. It’s such a fun cream puff, I’m excited to finally be able to share it with you.

To color the cream puff shells, just add 1/4 teaspoon of yellow soft gel paste food color to the cream puff shell recipe after beating in the eggs. The colored pate a choux recipe is my my cookbook.

White icing color turns the icing bright white, but it’s optional if you don’t want to buy it.
