For an edible craft treat try making this fun looking turkey! Be advised though that while this craft is rated as easy, parental supervision is still needed. Also, as in all recipes, results can vary depending on humidity and other conditions.
You will need:
Bag of candy corn (for beak and eyes)
Bag of caramel candy squares (for the body)
Bag of Dove chocolate (for the base/feet)
Bag of striped chocolate cookies (for the tail and feathers)
Thanksgiving cup cake liners
Unwrap a piece of Dove chocolate to use as the base of the turkey. Place on a microwavable plate.
Unwrap a piece of caramel and stick on top of the Dove chocolate bar for the turkey’s body.
Take a piece of candy corn and push down on top of the caramel leaving the pointed end out. This makes the turkey’s beak.
Take another piece of caramel and push down on top of the first caramel. This is the head of the turkey.
Break off the little white ends of 2 candy corns and push in the top caramel for the eyes.
Take one striped chocolate cookie and apply to the back of the body to form the feathers.
Put the entire turkey in the microwave for a few seconds (about 8 seconds) just so that the candy and cookie can fuse together. Be sure and watch this the entire time as you do not want the turkey to melt, only to fuse together.
Place in freezer for a few minutes to help the turkey “set up” quicker.
Serve in a Thanksgiving cupcake paper.
