'Ears a sweet fall treat that's great for a classroom or Thanksgiving snack -- marshmallow cobs filled with colorful fruit kernels.
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)
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.
