You’ll Want to Gobble These Right Up!

Turkey Pops

I’ve been busy working on all kinds of cake pops lately. I think I’ve made close to 40 different variations so far. (Trying to put together a book.) But, since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I wanted to make sure you don’t have dry turkey on the menu. So, choose a cake and frosting flavor and follow these directions for super moist cake pops. Then, use the following additions to turn them into Turkey Pops. You’ll need chocolate candy coating, almond bark or candy melts for the body. Use extra melted chocolate to “glue” the additions on.

Caramel Candy Corn
Turkey Feathers = Caramel Candy Corn
You can use the original flavor for brighter feathers.

Expresso Beans
Heads = Coated Expresso Beans
The brown ones. I found mine at the Fresh Market grocery chain.

Beaks = Orange chips from these Rainbow Candy Coated Chips
Wattle = Mini hearts from Casino Sprinkles.
They might be hard to find so try these.

ABC Pretzels
Legs = The “I”s from these ABC Pretzels. (Broken in half)
Found at the World Market Chain. But, you can also just use pretzel sticks.
These can also be inserted into the Turkey body while the chocolate is still wet.

Turkey Pops
Eyes = Americolor Edible Ink Pen

Hope you have a Happy Turkey Day!

I made these not to long ago for a club at University of California, Irvine. We were celebrating thanksgiving birthdays. Although mine did not turn out as pretty as bakerellas’ everyone thought they were so cute and tasty :D even though expresso beans, rainbow chips, and casino sprinkles are hard to find. I found alternatives such as chocolate covered almonds for the heads, orange nerds for the beak, and i used red icing for the wattle/gobbly part haha. it still was a success. i plan on making more of these every year and also trying out other recipes here such as those mini cheesecakes :D

I found that the chocolate coating dried too fast so we just made them w/o legs.
