Turkey Thursday

Now that Halloween is's time to get ready for Thanksgiving.
I am hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year.  
I'm planning a casual gathering (I'll give you peeks along the way).  
One thing I always like to have at parties/dinners/get-togethers is sweets.  
Shock, I know!

Here's a little treat I came up with using leftover Halloween candy.

this is what I started with

This is what I ended up with
I used black icing gel to make 'eyes'

These would make fun treats for a classroom.  
They would be great as cupcake toppers.  
A bunch of these displayed on a simple platter would look pretty cool too.  
It may be a little more time consuming, but how cute would these be on a stick?!?

Play around with your Halloween candy (if you have any leftover) 
to see what goodies you can make!  
Let me know if you do.  
If you have pictures, please post them to my Facebook page.  
I'd love to see!!

These are so adorable, Staci! Very clever. I tossed my candy corn because I ate so much that just looking at it made me want to hurl! I'll have to see if I can figure something out with the other candy we have.

Ahh! The black icing eyes really does the trick.

these are so adorable~ i would love to make for my son's ps class, but we have kids with peanut allergies. i wonder what i could use instead of pb cups?

staci @ lizard n ladybug said...

Thanks everyone!

@Tania, you could probably use Rolos. I'm pretty sure they are peanut-free.

Kattie said...

Very cute idea!
