Mini Harvest Corn Treats
How cute are these Mini Harvest Corn Treats? My kids had so much fun making these and I know yours will as well. These fun fall treats will be the hit at their class parties, a bake sale or your Thanksgiving feast. There are no rules, so make them your own. Let me know how they turn out!
- 12 cups Popcorn (Popped)
- ½ cup – 1 cup Sixlets Candy
- 10 Corn Husks (usually can find at any local grocery store)
- ½ stick unsalted butter
- ¼ cup Brown Sugar
- 1- 10oz bag of mini marshmallows
- Twine or string
1. Have your 12 cups of popcorn popped and ready to go. I used microwave popcorn but stovetop popcorn works just as good.
2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar together. Stir for about 3-4 minutes until sugar is dissolved.
3. Add marshmallows to saucepan and stir until melted about 2 minutes.
4. Immediately add popcorn and mix together.
5. Add sixlet candy’s and gently mix.
6. To shape the corn shape it does help to rub a little butter on your hands to prevent mixture from sticking to your hands.
7. Now, take some popcorn mixture and with your hands shape into a corn on the cob shape. To make mini ones, use about a palm full of popcorn mixture.
8. Set popcorn cobs on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Continue to do this until all mixture is gone.
9. Let cool, about 10 minutes.
10. Now, take one cob and lay towards the top of a corn husk, slightly wrap and twist the bottom. Tie with twine or string.
11. This recipe makes 10-12 mini harvest corns.
