How to Make Turkey Pops – Gobble Gobble!

Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen and I have some friends – yes – believe it or not we have real life friends lol!!!  And they are crafty!!!

Katina and Shannon got together for a play date and were SO thoughtful to take photos of these ADORABLE Turkey Pops they made for their children for school!

My sweet friend, Shannon, and I had a fun time putting these treats together for our children’s Thanksgiving party at school!

 

 

What you will need: Lollipop sticks; Candy Corn; Small pretzel sticks; White Icing; Red Icing; Black Gel Icing; Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Drops (or you can substitute Whoppers or Junior Mints); and Double Stuff Oreos (make sure to get the Double Stuff so it holds everything together better)

Insert Lollipop stick, 5 candy corns, and 2 pretzel sticks into the Oreo crème.

Squirt a small amount of white icing onto the center of the Oreo.

Place a Hershey chocolate drop onto the top of the icing and press down gently.

 

Squirt 2 small drops of white icing on top of the Hershey chocolate for the eyes.

Dab a small amount of Black gel icing on top of the white icing. Gently squeeze the tube because the gel icing comes out fast!

Use the red icing to make the turkey’s snood (the red thing over the top of a turkey’s beak).

For the turkey’s nose, cut off the tip of a candy corn.

Place the tip of the candy corn on top of the red icing.

Place the turkey pops on a flat surface for the icing to harden. If you stand them up too early, the icing will drip down.

I bought a square piece of Styrofoam to stick the turkey pops in and painted it yellow.

Ready to go!

our kids are sooo excited for their Thanksgiving party!

    Hey!

    I made these today with 50% off candy and stuff from Mitch and Nina’s stash. Super cute, quick, and impressive.

    Thanks!

    They look so cute – shame we can’t get Candy Corn in the U.K! We occasionally receive gifts from friends visiting the U.S which includes Candy Corn, our children adore it! Anyway, it looks like a fun thing to do for thanksgiving – hey, we don’t have that here either lol. I still think it looks fun though!!

    I made these tonight and my Oreos kept cracking. I was using Wilton lollipop sticks….on at least 1/2 of the the Oreo cracked when I put in the sticks. Suggestions on keeping them intact?
