How To Make Corn Ribs – Riblets

It’s official, TikTok has brought out their “latest and greatest” trend, this time with homemade corn cobs. During the cooking process, the corn curls up slightly and resembled the curved rib shape, i.e., ‘corn riblets.’ No need for a fork. Just pick up with your figures and start nibbling. Yum!

These corn “riblets” are so fun to eat, visually stunning and kid-friendly. They allow you to enjoy the crunchy exterior while savoring the sweet and juicy flavors and true essence of corn. 

Honestly it was super yummy but took some SERIOUS muscles to cut through the cobs of corn. In the end it was totally worth it! These Corn Ribs make a great weekend BBQ appetizer for your friends and family but for me, I kept them all to myself while streaming Netflix. Yay Me!

How To Make Corn Ribs – Riblets


2 corn
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin powder
½ tsp garlic powder, optional
a pinch of salt

Dip Sauce

1 tbsp yogurt
1 tbsp mayo
1 tsp smoked paprika


Preheat the oven to 375ºF/190ºC.

Chop the corn into riblets. The easiest method to do this is to place the corn vertically on
chopping board. First chop in half and then into quarters leaving the center core attached.

Combine olive oil and all of the spices

Brush the seasoning over the chopped corn ribs

Bake for 25-30 mins until it gets crispy and curl

Cooking Options

You can then either bake the corn ribs in an oven for 25/30 minutes or an air fry for 10 minutes. Either way, they should come out tender and golden.

A favorite flavor option: Modern-day American cuisine has popularized the elote, which is essentially roasted or boiled corn on a stick covered with mayonnaise, crema, chile powder, salty cheese, lime juice and a good spicy hot sauce. Mexican street corn has become a staple at food trucks, food festivals and street fairs across the country.

Note: Everyone has their preferred dipping sauce so you may want to experiment with flavors not only for the dipping sauce and/or brushed on flavors.
