Indian Corn on a Stick
This fun fall treat looks like colorful Indian corn.
3/4 cup margarine
60 large marshmallows
3 quarts popped popcorn
1/4 cup peanuts (or other coarsely chopped nuts)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped dried fruits (cranberries, apricots, pineapple,
apples, raisins, etc.)
Melt margarine and marshmallows over low heat. Pour over popped
popcorn and stir in nuts, coconut, and dried fruits. When cool
enough to handle, butter hands and mold popcorn mixture into ear of
corn shapes approximately 6 inches long. Place on a greased cookie
sheet or waxed paper to set.
Immediately while marshmallow is still
sticky, place a few pieces of nuts, and dried fruits on the shape to
resemble colorful kernels of corn. Insert a skewer or a wooden stick
or dowel in the end of each. Let cool.
When marshmallow is set, wrap with cellophane and tie with raffia
bow if desired.
Makes approximately 6-7 servings.
