Recipe – Turkey Snacks

From the title you may be thinking this is going to be a great after Thanksgiving Snack, but that is not the case! Those little turkeys are great all month long! Use them at the Dinner table as gifts on Thanksgiving or bring them into school or the office as a Holiday treat to share with everyone.

Materials:
Tulle
M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces
Pipe Cleaners
Googly Eyes
Glue
Small plastic hair ties

Instructions:

  1. Place candies into center of a Tulle square, tie together with the elastic.
  2. Cut brown pipe cleaner into 6 inch pieces and roll to about 2 inches. Wrap an orange pipe cleaner around to form beak. Example below.
  3. Add eyes to the sides of your Turkey and use red pipe cleaner for the wattle underneath the chin. Yellow pipe cleaner can be used to create the legs and toes.
  4. Stick pipe cleaner pieces into Tulle to stick into Turkey!

A Sweet Halloween Centerpiece!

The best part of this centerpiece? You can make it your own! I loved the aesthetic colors of this piece with just the Orange, Black, Yellow and Whites. The layers are as follows: mini marshmallows, black licorice, pumpkin peeps, mini marshmallows, Whoppers, Candy Corn, ghost peeps, colored gumballs, and topped with colorful candy lollipops.

Purple and Green would be another spooky combination together. Containers could be anything from a vase to a mason jar to champagne flutes! Another touch you could add is a colorful ribbon tied around the center of the glass. Whatever you decide to layer, we would love to know what you used and how it came out.
