- Bag of candy corn (for beak and eyes)
- Bag of caramel candy squares (for body)
- Chocolate square (for base/feet)
- Bag of striped chocolate cookies (for tail and feathers)
- Thanksgiving cupcake liners
- Use a chocolate square as the base of the turkey. Place it on a microwavable plate.
- Unwrap a piece of caramel and stick on top of the chocolate piece for the turkey's body.
- Take another piece of caramel and push it down on top of the first caramel to make the head of the turkey.
- Take a piece of candy corn and push it down on the top piece of caramel (pointed end out). This will make the turkey's beak.
- Break off the little white tips off two pieces of candy corns and push them both into the top of the same caramel for the turkey's eyes (see photo).
- Take one striped chocolate cookie and apply to the back of the body to form the turkey's feathers.
- Put the turkey in the microwave for a about eight seconds just so that the candy and cookie can fuse together. (Watch this! Not too much time or it will melt.)
- Place your turkey int the freezer for a few minutes to help it set up quicker.
- Serve your tasty treat on Thanksgiving-themed cupcake paper.
