Candy Corn Turkeys
Activity DesignerJulie Kirkwood
We have been making these fun turkey-themed snacks every Thanksgiving since my oldest child was a toddler. This treat was shared with me by a friend who writes Caffeine and a Prayer. They are easy to make and fun... All you need to create these adorable snacks are a couple of Hershey's kisses, some candy corn, icing, and round crackers.
What You'll Need
How We Did It
I assembled all of our ingredients on a tray. This makes a great treat for a class Thanksgiving party...or you can just make a few for a special family snack.
Next, they counted out five candy corns for each turkey and placed them in a fan shape for the tail feathers, with the pointy side down and the tops of the candy corn sticking up a bit from the cracker.
We lay the turkeys on a wax paper-covered plate and put the little gobblers in the fridge for about 10 minutes to cement the frosting before getting them to stand up (see next two steps).
Next, we placed another Hershey's Kiss on our tray, one for each turkey. This will serve as a little stand for the turkey to lean on. A little bit of icing on the back of the cracker will hold the turkey onto this Hershey's Kiss.
