  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • Yellow and red food coloring
  • 16 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1/3 cup spreadable honey nut cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup honey


  1. Divide regular cream cheese into thirds; place in separate bowls. Tint one portion yellow and one portion orange with yellow and red food coloring. Leave remaining portion white.
  2. Using a 3-in. candy corn-shaped cookie cutter, cut two pieces from each bread slice. Spread honey nut cream cheese over eight bread cutouts. Layer with peanut butter and bananas; drizzle with honey. Top with remaining bread cutouts. Decorate top of sandwiches with tinted cream cheese to resemble candy corn.
