Candy corn. When we finally got to do some real trick-or-treating (after that whole trick-or-treat on the wrong night fiasco), my daughter was disappointed that she didn’t get any in her bucket. So, I went out and got a bag (75% off since it was after Halloween).
I decided we’d put some of it to good use and craft a few candy corn turkeys as an after school treat this week.
I have to say they were both pretty excited when I brought our turkey ingredients to the table.
I gave each of them a marshmallow to use as the turkey’s body, a handful of candy corn for its feathers, and a cut piece of Twizzler Pull-N-Peel candy to use as legs and a waddle. I also got out some orange decorating icing for a beak (although candy corn would have worked as well), and some small dark candies for eyes.
They wasted no time getting creative!
Of course, their favorite part was eating their creations!
