  • Keep pressing the mixture firmly so that it sticks.
  • When you are happy with the shape of your turkey, make 2 drumsticks and 2 wings out of the remaining mixture and stick onto the body. They should be sticky enough at this stage to hold, otherwise use a little melted marshmallow. Place in the fridge to set, preferably overnight.
