Couldn’t resist the cake pops again–only this time we’re making turkeys…a pack of them.
Or is it a gaggle?
You will need:
tub of frosting
colored mini chips
red Starbursts (2 should do it)
peanut m&ms (red, orange and yellow)
food color markers
Start with the cake pop recipe from a few months back–this time we used chocolate cake and frosting. Dip them in Chocolate melts, and insert the sucker sticks. Now take them to the freezer to chill up a bit.
Sort out some yellow and orange mini chips–these will be your beaks.
You will use the markers to draw on the eyes.
Stick the mini chip beaks onto the M&Ms with the candy melts. We took tiny pinches of red Starbursts and shaped them into little waddles–and stuck them on the same way.
Then draw on the eyes with the edible markers.
Aren’t they just dang cute?
Stick the candy corn “feathers” on with the chocolate melts. It worked best to lay the turkey down like this to hold the feathers on while they dry. The candy melts set up quickly–so while they are setting you can add the cute little turkey heads–stick them on with the chocolate as well.
Now they are ready to grace your Thanksgiving table or—if you’re like us–they will make the perfect little neighbor treats.
Or you could just eat them all by yourself…
