It’s become a tradition to roll out the marshmallow pops and cupcake toppers for holidays at our happy place. The little people love these over your fancy pumpkin pie any old day. After making turkey marshmallow pops I learned that they are better on top of a cupcake than on a stick. They sit just right on a cupcake and you can overload candy corn without worrying about weight, which is an issue when your toddler waves the stick around in excitement.
Making turkey pops or cupcake toppers:
marshmallows, cut in half
m&ms or candy corn for feathers
icing (we make our own)
candy cupcake balls for the eyes
Warm your icing (ours is powdered sugar, cocoa, and milk) and dip half a marshmallow and a cookie. Allow them to set on parchment. Dip the balls for eyes into frosting to adhere to the marshmallow, add a tip of candy corn for a beak and a sliver of the twizzler for the snood. Draw the pupils with a toothpick. Add the candy corn and the stick on back with a dollop of frosting. Allow the whole turkey to set in the fridge for at least one hour before serving.linked with the inspiration board
