What do you need to make Turkey Candy?

  • Brownies – Just make your favorite box mix or buy some at the store.
  • Chocolate Frosting – I used a can of icing but you can also use my favorite chocolate buttercream recipe.
  • Candy Eyes – find these at any craft store or on Amazon
  • Candy Corn – these make the turkey feathers!

How to make Candy Thanksgiving Turkeys

  • Cut circles in any size out of your brownies.
  • Frost the brownies with chocolate frosting.
  • Place about 4 candy corns on top of the brownie to look like turkey feathres
  • Add candy eyes and then pinch off a tip of the candy corn to use as a nose.

These are the cutest little turkeys – they’re almost too cute to eat but nope – I’ll eat three!

Recipe Swap

  • Make Reeses Candy Turkeys by using peanut butter cups in place of the brownies. You don’t have to frost them – just use a bit of frosting or melted chocolate to make the candy corn and eyes stick.
  • Use a different color frosting for the eyes – or use M&Ms or even chocolate chips or mini Reese’s pieces.

  • Use a round cookie cutter to cut circles out of your brownies. My cookie cutter was 1 3/4” in diameter. I’d say don’t go smaller than 1 1/2” or larger than 2”.
  • Frost each brownie with chocolate frosting. Place 4 candy corn pieces upside down sticking up from the frosted brownie to simulate the turkeys feathers.
  • Place two eyes on the face of the turkey.
  • Cut the tip off of a candy corn and add it as the beak.
  • Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Recipe Notes

  • You can bake a box brownie mix (9×9 or 9×13 size) or make my homemade brownies (linked above) or use my homemade brownie mix recipe.
  • Amount of turkeys will depend on cookie cutter size and pan size of brownies.
  • Instead of brownies, use regular size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
  • Instead of candy eyes, use M&Ms, frosting, or Reese’s Pieces.

  1. Oh my goodness, Dorothy!! These are seriously the CUTEST thing ever. I’m totally making these for Deacon to take to school – I’m not one of those “crafty” bakers, but I can handle these!!

  2. Oh my … I think they look adorable and fun! The perfect way to brighten up my kitchen (and to have fun with my 6 yr old son and my 2 yr old granddaughter in the kitchen)!!!!
