Rice Crispy Turkeys
3 TBSP Margarine or Butter
1-10 oz. Package Regular Marshmallows (about 40 lg.)
- or -
4 cups Mini Marshmallows
6 cups Chocolate
Mini candy coated chocolate candies
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips for "glue"
Red Fruit Leather
Melt margarine in large pot over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add chocolate crispy cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture evenly into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan and cool slightly.
Add the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 20 second intervals until melted. Stir. Pour the chocolate into the plastic baggie, pushing into one end, forming an icing bag. Carefully snip off the very tip of the baggie. This is your "glue" for the candy faces on the turkeys.
Round Turkeys: While the crispy cereal mix is still warm, Use a lightly greased 2 or 3-inch cookie cutter to cut out cereal rounds. Using Candy Corn for feathers, stick them into the cereal around the top half of the circle. (I used 5 Candy Corn on each turkey). Glue on the mini candy coated chocolate candy eyes and Candy Corn nose/mouth. Cut out a small piece of fruit leather for the gobbler and glue it under the candy corn.
Rectangle Turkeys: While the crispy cereal mix is still warm, cut the mixture into 3-inch long rectangles. Using Candy Corn for feathers, stick them into the rectangle along the sides and top - refer to the picture for correct placement. Glue on the mini candy coated chocolate candy eyes and Candy Corn nose/mouth. Cut out a small piece of fruit leather for the gobbler and glue it under the candy corn.
For Turkey Pops: Place a Popsicle stick up through the bottom of each circle or rectangle.
Wrap individually in plastic wrap or goodie bags before refrigerating. Bring to room temperature before serving. Can easily be frozen once individually wrapped.
Each 9x13 pan makes 12 circle or 12 rectangle turkeys
