    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    These are really cute turkeys made out of apples that kids can make for school or just eat as a snack. They also make adorable Thanksgiving Table decorations. They can be made with either Fruit Loops or raisins. Rule: broken Fruit Loops must be eaten. Variations: head can be a cut out that is glued on or a large marshmallow with raisin eyes and a candy corn stuck into it for a beak.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Turkey

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 apple
    • 1/4 cup Fruit Loops cereal (if using Fruit Loops you will need a few raisins for the neck) or 1/4 cup raisins (if using Fruit Loops you will need a few raisins for the neck)
    • 6 -7 mini marshmallows
    • 7 -11 toothpicks
    • 1 green olives
    • 2 cloves

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make the feathers: Take raisins or Fruit Loops and slide onto toothpicks about 3/4 the way down. Place a mini-marshmallow on the end. You will need 6 or 7 "feathers" depending on the size of your apple.
    2. 2
      Stick the "feathers" into the back of the apple.
    3. 3
      To make the head: Slide raisins down toothpick and top with a green olive (head). Use cloves for eyes. If your olive has a pimiento you can pull it out the back of the olive and let it hang so that it looks like a turkey wattle.
    4. 4
      Insert three toothpicks under the turkey so it can stand freely.

      I made 8 of these for placecards at Thansgiving this year - what a hoot! I have a container of Coriander that came in a set, and I never use that in cooking, so used those for the eyes. Each one had character. Thanks for sharing.

      This was a great project to do with my kids, and the apple turkeys made adorable decorations on our holiday appetizer platters. They were a huge hit with the whole family!
