Cocoa Crispy Treats “Turkeys” with candy corn “feathers” and nose are fun to make and fun to eat!
What You Need (It may already be in your pantry!):
3 TBSP Margarine or Butter
1-10 oz. Package Regular Marshmallows (about 40 lg.)
4 cups Mini Marshmallows
6 cups Chocolate Crispy Cereal
Mini candy coated chocolate candies
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips for “glue”
Red Fruit Leather
Melt margarine in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add chocolate crispy cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture evenly into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan and cool slightly.
Microwave 1/2 cup of chocolate chips on high for 20 second intervals until melted (careful not to burn). Stir completely. Pour chocolate into plastic baggie, pushing into one end, forming an icing bag. Carefully snip off a tiny tip of the baggie. This is your “glue” for the candy faces on the turkeys.
While the crispy cereal mix is still warm, Use a lightly greased 2 or 3-inch cookie cutter to cut out 12 cereal rounds. Use 5 candy corn candies for “feathers.” Glue on the mini candy coated chocolate candy eyes and candy corn nose and mouth. Cut out a small piece of fruit leather for the gobbler and glue it under the candy corn. Place a popsicle stick up through the bottom of each turkey. Wrap individually in plastic wrap or goodie bags before refrigerating. Bring to room temperature before serving. You can freeze once individually wrapped.
