The kids and I had a ball making these tasty turkeys for Thanksgiving one year. The treats would make a fun favor at each place setting on your Thanksgiving table—if your family doesn't gobble them up first! —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 28 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate frosting
  • 1 package (11 ounces) candy corn
  • 28 malted milk balls
  • White candy coating, optional

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add marshmallows; stir over low heat until melted. Stir in cereal. Cool for 10 minutes. With buttered hands, form cereal mixture into 1-1/2-in. balls. Twist apart sandwich cookies. If desired, remove filling and save for another use. Spread chocolate frosting over each cookie half.
  2. Place 28 cookie halves under cereal balls to form a base for each turkey. Place 5 pieces of candy corn in a fan pattern on each remaining cookie half; press each half onto a cereal ball to form the tail. Use frosting to attach 2 pieces of candy corn to each cereal ball to form turkey wings. For each head, attach a malted milk ball with frosting; cut white tip off additional candy corn and attach to head with frosting to form beak. If desired, place melted white candy coating in a piping bag fitted with a #1 round tip; pipe onto head to form eyes. Allow to stand until frosting has set. Store, tightly covered, at room temperature.
