Make use of leftover candy corn, Whoppers, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with this festive craft.

Candy turkeys

Most stores seem to jump straight from Halloween into winter holiday decor, but don’t skip over Thanksgiving-themed treats. Use leftover candy to make these festive “turkeys,” which are fun to pass out to friends or put on display at a holiday party.

Leftover candy:


Dots, gummy bears, or other gummy candy

Candy corn 

Reese’s peanut butter cups

Additional ingredients:

Oreos (note: pretzels can also be used)


Optional red food dye for decorations

Alternatively, these turkeys can drop less of a sugar bomb if made using pretzels instead of the Oreos. Simply coat a pretzel in frosting, attach the Whopper or Milk Dud to the center and attach a “fan” of 3 candy corns with frosting.
