One week until Thanksgiving!!! Enjoy this adorable Thanksgiving themed guest post by Becky and be ready for our exciting new Thanksgiving mini-blog series starting this Sunday...
These just sounded so cute for thanksgiving, so I had to try them. The idea for this is from the Food Network, and you can find those instructions here.
For each candy turkey
-mini Reese's cup
-5 pieces candy corn
-blue food coloring
|Put 4 pieces of candy corn into an the cream of an Oreo.|
One of the recommendations I saw was to use a double stuff Oreo,
I think this helped because they were pretty close to breaking open.
|Melt chocolate on a small plate. I used chocolate chips.|
Dip the larger end of the Reese's to coat the bottom.
|Stick the Reese's to the other Oreo, use the melted chocolate like glue.|
|Do the same thing with the Whopper for the head, dip it in |
chocolate and glue on top of the Reese's. Break off the white tip of the last candy corn
and glue it to the Whopper for the beak.
|Take the Oreo with the candy corn feathers and glue it to the back of the other Oreo.|
|I thought it needed eyes, so I took a little bit of food coloring|
on the end of a fork and made small dots for eyes.
|I also experimented with making larger eyes with mini hot chocolate sized marshmallows.|
|I glued on the marshmallows with the chocolate, and put the |
food coloring dot on the marshmallow.
I don't think I like this one as much.
When I decided to do this, I was almost sure they were going to look terrible. I think they don't turned out too bad, not as good as the food network I'm sure, but pretty good. They were also much easier than I thought to make, and the chocolate really worked to hold all the pieces together..
