Edible Indian Corn
What's your Take?

Ears a sweet fall treat that's great for a classroom or scout meeting — marshmallow cobs filled with colorful fruit kernels.

What you'll need

  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups of puffed corn cereal
  • 1 1/3 cups diced dried fruit (we used raisins, papaya, cranberries, and apricots)
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Fruit leather

How to make it

  1. In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows over low heat (about 5 minutes).

  2. Remove the mixture from the stove and use a wooden spoon to stir in puffed corn cereal and diced dried fruit. Allow the mixture to cool for about 10 minutes.

  3. Using buttered hands, shape each treat by pressing 1/3 cup of the mixture around a Popsicle stick. Add fruit leather husks to the bottom of the ear, slightly moistening them to help them stick if needed. Makes 15 treats.
