Instructions

  • Cut yellow M&M's in half to make 16 "noses."
  • Slice Twizzler licorice sticks on a diagonal to make "wattles".
  • Melt candy melts in a small bowl in microwave for 30 seconds on 50% power. Stir. Continue with 30 second intervals (at 50% power), stirring between each heating cycle, until chocolate is melted.
  • Using a lollipop stick (or toothpick or small form), dab a bit of chocolate on the back of a candy eye. Place on nutter butter. Repeat with second eye. Dab a bit of chocolate on back of half M&M. Place on nutter butter for nose. Dab a bit of chocolate on Twizzler. Place on nutter butter for wattle. Repeat with all 16 cookies. Allow to set.
  • If needed, heat chocolate until melted again.
  • Spread a bit of chocolate across top half of chocolate wafer. Place 5 candy corns on each chocolate wafer for turkey feathers. Repeat with all 16 chocolate wafers. Allow to set.
  • If needed, heat chocolate until melted again.
  • Spread a bit of chocolate across bottom half of chocolate wafer (under the feathers). Stick the "head" of the turkey right beneath the feathers. Gently set aside. Repeat with all 16 cookies & feathers. Allow to set.
