    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
    • 12 ounces yellow candy melts
    • 6 ounces orange candy melts
    • 6 ounces red candy melts
    • 12 edible candy eyes
    • 2 -3 pieces orange Starburst candies (beak)
    • 6 lollipop sticks
    • wax paper
    • 3 plastic bottles (melting or decorating squeeze bottle with a cap with a small-medium round opening)


    1. 1
      Draw a turkey on plain paper and make as many copies as desired. The body should be the outline of a Nutter Butter cookie.(A template appears in the photo section.) Lay a piece of wax paper over each template.
    2. 2
      Cut the Starburst candies into pointy triangles so they resemble a beak. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Add yellow candy melts to one of the decorating bottles. I lay the bottle on its side in the microwave. Microwave at 50% power for one minute. Press the bottle, mixing the candy and continue melting in 20-30 second intervals. Don't overcook the candy melts.
    4. 4
      Yellow: Fill in the body and first row of feathers with the melted yellow candy melts. Immediately press the lollipop stick into the body area. Add a little bit more yellow on top of the stick and press a Nutter Butter cookie on top. Do the same with the remaining turkeys.
    5. 5
      Orange: Melt the orange candy in bottle #2. Fill in the next row of feathers. Repeat with remaining turkeys.
    6. 6
      Red: Melt the red candy in bottle #3. Fill in the outer row of feathers. Repeat with remaining turkeys.
    7. 7
      Add the candy eyes. You can reheat the yellow candy melts or use a small amount of melted white chocolate chips. Put a dab on the back of the edible eyes and attach to the turkey body.
    8. 8
      Add the beak. Put a dab of melted candy on the back of the beak and attach right below the eyes.
    9. 9
      Snood: It's that red thing that dangles on the turkey's face. You may need to remelt the red candy. Pipe a squiggly red snood onto the turkey face.
    10. 10
      Allow turkeys to harden. Enjoy!
