    Cooking Creation's Note:

    In an effort to stray from the normal Thanksgiving treats for kids (Oreo Turkey Treats, Candy Pilgrim Hats, etc.), I came up with these. Only five ingredients paired with a little bit of time and patience and you will have cute, delicious turkey treats that your guests will gobble, gobble up!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Turkey ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 medium strawberries
    • 8 ounces chocolate candy melts
    • 12 pieces candies, pearl candy, white
    • 12 pieces candies, heart-shaped, orange
    • 42 pieces candy corn, divided

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the chocolate candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in increments of 30 seconds, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted. Allow the chocolate to cool for a few minutes before using as it is easier to work with chocolate that is slightly thickened.
    2. 2
      Cut off the tops of the strawberries and reserve the tops (these will be used for the wattles). Place a strawberry in the bowl of melted chocolate and stir it around with a spoon until it is completely coated. Lift the strawberry up out of the chocolate and allow some of the excess to fall off. Place the strawberry onto wax paper. Repeat with the remaining strawberries.
    3. 3
      Assemble the "eyes". Place two pearl candies side-by-side on the top part of the "face" of the turkey and hold them there for a few seconds, until they stay on their own. Dip the tip of a toothpick in the melted chocolate and dot the center of the pearl candies with the chocolate to complete the eyes. Repeat with the remaining strawberries.
    4. 4
      Make the "feet". Place two orange candy hearts at the bottom where feet would go and hold them there for a few seconds, until they stay on their own. Repeat with the remaining strawberries.
    5. 5
      Make the "beak". Take 6 pieces of the candy corn and cut the yellow and white parts off, so you have just the orange portion remaining. Cut each orange piece into a triangular shape. Dip the tip of a toothpick in the melted chocolate and apply some of the melted chocolate to the backside of a "beak". Place the beak onto the strawberry under the eyes and hold it there for a few seconds, until it stays on its own. Repeat with the remaining "beaks".
    6. 6
      Make the "wattle". Using a sharp paring knife, cut very thin slivers off of the reserved strawberry tops. Drape the strawberry sliver over the beak and gently press it into the chocolate. Repeat with the remaining "wattles".
    7. 7
      Place the turkeys in the freezer for 5 minutes, to allow the chocolate to slightly set. Allowing the chocolate to slightly set at this point helps the candy corn (feathers) stick to the chocolate and strawberry easier.
    8. 8
      Make the "feathers". This is the hardest part but after a little practice, it really is easy. 6 total pieces of candy corn go into the top of each strawberry to make the "feathers", 4 on the top and 1 on each side. With your toothpick, poke four small holes in the very top edge of the strawberry where the 4 top candy corn would go. Gently and carefully press the pieces of candy corn into the holes. I find that this is easiest if you steady the strawberry with your other hand by placing the toothpick in the backside of it as you press the candy corn pieces inches For the remaining 2 side "feathers", you must cut the candy corn at an angle to make them fit more easily into the sides. Make small holes with the toothpick for the side "feathers" and press the candy pieces in as you did with the others. Roll your toothpick around into the melted chocolate and spread a thin layer of the chocolate at the base of the "feathers". This will give some extra support for the candy corn. Hold the candy corn in place for a few moments, until they stay on their own.
    9. 9
      Return the turkeys to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, to allow the chocolate to completely set.
    10. 10
      Enjoy!

      I was so excited to make these but it totally didn't work. The candy corn wouldn't stay in the chocolate. They all kept falling off. Such a bummer! At least the chocolate covered strawberries were good!
