- 1/2 cup powdered cugar
- 4 tablespoons milk
- Yellow and red food coloring
- 12 chocolate-covered cherries
- 24 Ritz crackers
- 36 candy corns
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Look at the photo as a guide. This recipe makes 12 turkeys.
Mix the powdered sugar with enough milk until you have a paste. Add a drop of yellow and then red food coloring to make mixture close to the cracker color.
Spread frosting mix on two crackers. Wait a minute until frosting begins to set.
Place two candy corn on one cracker with small pointy ends facing in and touching. These will be the “feet.” Lay a chocolate cherry slightly behind corn feet on its side with the flat side facing the back. Place remaining frosted cracker against chocolate cherry and press to hold.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in the microwave and dip one corn in chocolate to act as the “glue.” Attach a corn to the top of chocolate-covered cherry and against the vertical cracker as the “head.”
Let harden and enjoy!
