Candy Corn Ice Cream Float

Today’s Candy Corn Dessert is a super simple take on a classic ice cream float with a pretty ombre effect. This Candy Corn Ice Cream Float would be perfect for a fall movie night or to serve at fall parties.

Candy Corn Drink Recipe

Every year, the first time my daughter sees packages of candy corn on store shelves, she begs for a package… even though no one ever seems to eat them!

As a special fall treat, I made these fun candy corn ice cream floats for a recent play date. The girls loved them — but I’d like to just casually point out how they both removed their candy corn garnish before enjoying their floats.

Luckily, these candy corn floats don’t actually taste like candy corn.

I used orange soda, lemon sorbet and whipped cream for a delicious twist on a creamsicle. The lemon sorbet adds brightness and creaminess to the orange soda as it slowly melts or is stirred into the fizzy drink.

If you don’t want to use orange soda, you can use San Pellegrino Sparkling Orange or a flavored, sparkling orange water. The lemon sorbet can also be replaced with lemon ice cream, lemon gelato or lemon frozen yogurt.

If you want to make these candy corn floats for a party, I would prepare the scoops of lemon sorbet in advance by scooping them onto a cookie sheet and then placing that cookie sheet back in the fridge.

Then, portion out the orange soda into the party glasses. When ready to serve, you can quickly transfer the pre-scooped lemon sorbet into the glasses of orange soda and then top with whipped cream and optional candy corn garnish. (A second set of hands will make quick work of this.)
