Two-bite Turkeys@The Seven Year Cottage

No Thanksgiving feast would be complete without a turkey…

Or maybe even a whole gobbling rafter of them!

Two-bite Turkeys

  • Two-bite brownies
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate jimmies-sprinkles
  • Shortbread cookies (Murray)
  • 1/3c. chocolate chips
  • M&M Mini’s
  • Malted milk chocolate balls (bulk candy)
  • Edible eyes (Michael’s)
  • Yellow candy-coated sunflower seeds
  • Strawberry fruit by the foot
  • Miniature cupcake liners
  • Gallon & quart-size zipper bags

Melt chocolate chips and transfer to a quart-size zipper bag.  Seal and snip a tiny amount from one corner with clean kitchen shears.

To create turkey tail fans, squeeze five small dots of melted chocolate onto top half of shortbread cookies and quickly apply M&M’s in colors of your choice.

For faces, use melted chocolate to adhere two edible eyeballs, one yellow sunflower seed beak, and a wattle cut from a narrow strip of red fruit roll, to each malted milk chocolate ball.

Set all body parts aside, allowing “chocolate glue” to dry completely before assembling turkeys.

Spoon frosting into a gallon-size zipper bag, seal, and remove one corner with shears.  Pipe mounds of frosting onto two-bite brownies.

Holding brownies securely by their bottoms, gently roll wet frosting in a shallow bowl filled with chocolate jimmies for a feathered look.

Invert brownies and insert into cupcake papers.  Decorate each iced brownie with one colorful turkey tail, followed by a turkey head.

Arrange atop your Thanksgiving dessert buffet and enjoy!
