Chocolate Cupcake Turkeys & Candy Corn Mix

For some last minute treats I made these for the boys classrooms.  Pretty easy to make and you can make these up for tomorrow for the kiddos!

First I wanted to make another type of Turkey Cupcakes, this time I started with Chocolate Cupcake recipes.  Then I decorated them to look like Turkey's.


Mom's Chocolate Cupcakes (not mine but someone's hey it was the title):

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup oil
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon vinegar

Directions:1. Mix all ingredients together until moist and well blended.
2. Put in cupcake cups and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
3. Frost with your favorite icing.
4. To make a layer cake, double the recipes and put in 2 round cake pans.
5. Increase baking time to about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I followed along steps I found for Totally Terrific Turkeys.

Step 1: Frost Thin Base Layer
Step 2: Add "Globs for head" you can add one for tail I didn't
Step 3: Add Candy Corn Tail & Beak
Step 4: Add Eyes and Sprinkles


And we of course had to do one more recipe so I made up some Candy Corn Mix recipe found on I Heart Nap Time (She also made cute bags, I used the holiday ziplock bags).
5 Cups Honey Nut Chex
4 Cups of Mini Pretzels (I used the bag of large I had)
1 pkg of Vanilla candi Quick (I used Wiltons Melts)
1 Cup Candy Corn (found in my bulk section)
1 Cup Candy Corn M&M's (I couldn't find used Reese's Pieces)

Mix all your dry ingredients in a big bowl. Melt the candi quik in the microwave for one minute and pour over your mix. Stir it around and then lay on wax paper to dry.

There you go some quick and easy recipes that can be made up and even given as gifts!

  1. Sigh - we're not allowed to bring in homemade treats to my kids schools because of food/peanut allergies, but I have been volunteering in both of their classrooms and I know they would have gone crazy for these.
