Ears a sweet fall treat that's great for a classroom or scout meeting — marshmallow cobs filled with colorful fruit kernels.
In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows over low heat (about 5 minutes).
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.
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.
