Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

I’m not sure how many times I have said this in the last month, but it bears repeating: I am totally in love with Pinterest. While you can browse and bookmark virtually anything, I find it especially useful for finding new recipes and food ideas that I otherwise may not have noticed. Case in point: these incredibly adorable little candy turkeys. I saved these to my holiday board because they are so cute, but didn’t think I’d really have an opportunity to use them. And then it hit me – cupcake toppers! They look so regal sitting up there on the chocolate cupcakes, totally festive and worthy of a Thanksgiving dessert. Plus, these are a perfect project for kids if you have little ones that want to help out in the kitchen. (Or, big kids that love eating discarded pieces of candy. That would be me.)

This is all you need to make turkeys! Helloooooo candy ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is your ingredient list:

Cupcakes, tops flattened and lightly frosted (see Dark Chocolate Cupcakes and Chocolate Buttercream)
Oreo cookies
Whoppers
Miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups
Candy corn
Assorted icing – yellow, white and red

I am going to send you over to Our Best Bites for the step-by-step instructions on making these. Sara did a seriously awesome job of walking readers through how to make them, and I definitely couldn’t do it better! Plus, her turkeys are so stinkin’ cute. They would certainly take 1st prize in a turkey beauty contest. But my guys were just as delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t you just love the holidays?!
