Cute Thanksgiving Desserts
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Minis
Small candy eyes
Miniature candy corn
Orange cake frosting in can
1 cup chocolate candy melts
In a small, microwave safe bowl, heat your candy melts on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. This will become your food “glue.”
Dip the side of your peanut butter cup into your melted chocolate and place it onto the top of your Nilla Wafer (the front will form the face).
Using a pair of food tweezers to pick up your candy eyes, dip the backs in your melted chocolate, and place them onto the front of your peanut butter cups (towards the top). If you can manage it with your fingers, feel free to do that, but they are pretty tiny!
Dip the yellow ends of 3 pieces of candy corn into your melted chocolate and place them onto the back of your peanut butter cup, lower – towards the Nilla Wafer.
Next, dip the white ends of 2 pieces of candy corn into your melted chocolate and place them in between the candy corn spaces, sticking the opposite way (towards the top of your peanut butter cup).
Use your orange frosting to draw on a beak and let your little guys set for about 15 minutes for the chocolate to harden. Serve your little Thanksgiving dessert turkeys and enjoy!
