Candied Turkey

What You Need:


Bag of candy corn (beak and eyes)

Bag of caramel candy squares (body)

Bag of Dove chocolate (base/feet)

Bag of striped chocolate cookies (tail and feathers)

Thanksgiving cup cake liners

Microwavable plate

What to Do:

1. Unwrap a piece of Dove chocolate to use as the base of the turkey. Place on a microwavable plate.

2. Unwrap a piece of caramel and stick on top of the Dove chocolate bar for the turkey's body.

3. Take a piece of candy corn and push down on top of the caramel (pointed end out). This makes the turkey's beak.

4. Take another piece of caramel and push down on top of the first caramel. This is the head of the turkey.

5. Break off the little white ends of 2 candy corns and push in the top caramel for the eyes.

6. Take one striped chocolate cookie and apply to the back of the body to form the feathers.

7. Put the turkey in the microwave for a few seconds to about 8 seconds just so that the candy and cookie can fuse together. (Watch this! Not too much time, or it will melt.)

8. Place in freezer for a few minutes to help the turkey "set up" quicker. Serve in a Thanksgiving cupcake paper.
