Frozen Turkeys Marshmallow Craft!

Hey y'all! It's almost time to thaw out your Thanksgiving turkeys!

But you know, I like frozen turkeys too. Especially when they're so cute..and su-weet like these!

Say Hello to the good people Tom!
Well..he would, but his mouth is kinda frozen shut!  ;o)
You will need:
Blue Nerds-for the snood
White Sparkling sugar
Blue food color spray
Blue Airheads
Berry Blast Mike and Ikes
Blue candy melts
Candy eyes
Canned frosting
Pretzel sticks
Protect the surface on which you will be spraying your marshmallows. Now spray your marshmallows! 

Warm the frosting in the microwave for a few seconds. Mine took less than ten. Now dip the mallow bottoms in to coat and sprinkle on the sparkling sugar.

Let set.
Oh y'all know how I love making bird legs.

Remember when I made these! Or how about these?!

Melt candy melts in the microwave in 30 second intervals on 50% power, stirring each time. 

You can put the candy in a baggie and snip off a tiny corner to pipe, or pour into a squeeze bottle with tip to pipe. Or you can do like I did and use a decorator bag with a tip.

Lay down a sheet of wax or parchment paper to prepare the turkey legs on. Now just pipe a turkey foot..hehe..and place a pretzel leg into it. Hold in place just till it stands on it's own.

Pipe some feet without pretzels as well. Let set to harden.
Use the candy melts-you could use the frosting just as well-to attach candy pieces.

I used a sharp pair of scissors to snip off a little triangle of blue Airheads candy for my beaks. Oops...which i totally hung upside down on all my poor, cold turkeys! 
Looking good from up here!
Eeek! How cute is this?!
These are not only adorable, but yummy too!
That's All Folks!

Happy Thanksgiving from my house to yours.

Sweet thoughts, Karen  :o)
