How to make cookies that look like Indian corn


  • 6 cups cereal (Kix, Cocoa Puffs and Reese's Puffs work great)
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • Green Fruit Roll-Ups



Prepare the treats

Tear off 12 (10 x10 inch) square pieces of plastic wrap and spread them out on your counter top. Combine corn syrup and brown sugar in a large pot. Stir and heat on the stove until boiling. Remove from heat and add peanut butter. Stir well. Add cereals. Mix with a spatula until coated. Drop by large spoonfuls onto the pieces of plastic wrap.

For additional colorful corn kernels, you could also mix in raisins, dried fruits, mini marshmallows or Reese's Pieces.


Shape treats into ears of corn

Cover the mixture balls with the plastic wrap and use your hands to form into the shape of a corncob. Leave the plastic wrap on the corn-shaped treats, allow them to cool, then unwrap.

I had the same trouble, finding solid green fruit rollups. For these, I ended up using a half-yellow/half-blue flavor. (I think it was a box of Despicable Me2 branded Fruit Roll-ups.) If you layer the colors on top of each other they turn into green. You could also use a caramel apple wrap. A lot of indian corn has brown husks, so the caramel color would be perfect. I can usually find those wraps in the apple section of the grocery store.

These are so cute! A nice, creative treat. But where did you find the green fruit roll-ups? I have looked all over and can only find reds and other warm colors, often in tie-dye patterns.
