Candy Turkeys

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? Mine was great!

I convinced my mother to use my china with dinner and let me set the tables. I never get the opportunity to host a holiday to I am slowly trying to take domination over what I can. I also made all the desserts: Pumpkin pie, apple pie, and my candy turkeys.

I learned how to make these every year since I was 11 years old, and I have made them every year since. They are easy to make and are a great activity for kids.

You can't go wrong with the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate...

Candy Turkeys

You will need:
Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (one for each turkey)
Nutter Butter Cookies (same)
M&M Mini's (one tube per 5 turkeys)
One tube of Icing
Candy/Indian corn

  1. Take a Nutter Butter cookie and swirl some frosting on the bottom half of the cookie. Unwrap a Reese's and place the bottom part on the frosting.
2. Make a rainbow arch of frosting on the top of the Reese's cup.
 3.Take five Candy Corn and set in the frosting. Flip the turkey over!

4. Squiggle a crooked "T" with a tail shape on the upper half of the cookie, and pipe on a small straight line on the bottom.
 5. Apply green/blue/ or brown M&M's for eyes, orange/yellow for beak and feet, and one red M&M for the waddle, slightly to the side.
 And there you have it! Adorable and delicious turkeys to be sent home as a goody (in case you want all that leftover pie to yourself).

I like the geometrical pattern on the plate

 'Gobble, Gobble' them up as they tend to go fast!
