Reese’s Turkeys

Reese's Turkeys

Made these yesterday for the Young Women at church as their Thanksgiving treat.  They are so cute and were super easy to put together.  The idea comes from a blog called “Mom on Timeout”.

large Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, for how ever many turkeys you want to make (I bought 2 snack size bags of these, there were around 14 in each bag)

small Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, same amount as large (one bag was enough to cover the 28 large ones)

bag of Reese’s Pieces

package of candy eyes (I found them at Michaels)

melted chocolate, to use as “glue” (I used chocolate candy melts)

1  Unwrap all peanut butter cups.

2  Melt about 1/2 cup chocolate chips or candy melts in small microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30, until smooth.  Pour melted chocolate into ziploc sandwich bag, seal bag and snip the corner off of one end of the bag.

3  Attach small peanut butter cup to large cup along one edge with melted chocolate.  “Glue” 2 candy eyes on small cup and then glue one orange Reese’s Piece so that it sticks out away from cup for the nose.  Next attach 5 Reese’s Pieces, 3 yellow and 2 orange, along the top of the turkey, above his head, for the feathers.

  1. These are so cute. Cuter than the apple turkeys with gumdrops tails I use to make for the table décor. Happy Thanksgiving. Alice
