It’s officially those first days of November when Thanksgiving is imminent but we blissfully think it’s quite a ways off yet. The holiday celebrations are coming fast! This year we are not hosting Thanksgiving dinner but traveling out of state. So I won’t be making the turkey, salads or pies or anything for the actual Thanksgiving meal, but I’ll for sure be on the treat committee. I’m thinking fudge, cookies and maybe these adorable, festive mini Indian Corn treats.

To shape the corn shape it may help to rub a little butter on your hands to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands. Shape a small amount, about a palm-full of popcorn mixture, with your hands to shape into a corn cob shape. Set popcorn cobs on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Continue until all mixture is gone.
