Indian Corn Day

B finding out what Indian corn feels like

It was all fun and games until I accidentally hit one carton with my foot, sending corn flying! We read our Thanksgiving books after lunch and then for snack, we made our own Indian corn. I considered doing this cute recipe, but went with a slightly healthier one from family fun.com. Here it is:
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. Could use green fruit roll ups as husks.
Here's how it turned out:W didn't really like the fruit and I prefer original rice crispy treats, but it was fun to make and try.
