Easy Turkey Suckers Kids Will Love
How cute are these easy turkey suckers! They are so unique and would make a great addition to your next thanksgiving party, a treat for kids to take to school or a way to surprise your coworkers. Seeing the physical changes of the candy once under heat while making these turkey suckers, could turn this recipe into a fun learning project.
- Jolly Ranchers – orange, yellow, green, red
- Orange Tic-Tacs
- Candy eyes
- Red hot candies
- Sucker sticks
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees
2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
3. Unwrap Jolly Ranchers
4. Stick together 2 yellow jolly ranchers vertically, make sure they are touching. Then take your red, orange and green jolly ranchers and stick them above the yellow ones in a fan motion. Leave enough space so when they come out of the oven you can put a sucker stick in them.
5. Stick in oven for about 5-6 minutes. Keep a close eye on them and take them out when you get the melted desire you are wanting.
6. Immediately roll the end of a sucker stick in each sucker towards the bottom.
7. Quickly add the candy eyes, tic-tacs and redhots. If suckers start to harden, don’t worry, get a lighter and stick the flame carefully where you want the candies to go to and hold for a few seconds. It will melt the sucker just enough so you can stick the candies on.
8. Let them set at room temperature until harden, about 10 minutes.
9. Then they are ready to eat!!
Here are a few other fall recipes you’re going to love:
I know I’ve been a little pumpkin crazy and Fall JUST started. It’s felt a lot like fall for the last few weeks though since I’ve been waking up to chilly mornings, ending the day with cold evenings. A slice of cake always makes these things better, right? And a cake that looks like a pumpkin?! It doesn’t get much better than this!
Pumpkin Spice Frappuccinos are all the rage this season, but the price doesn’t exactly work for me. That’s why I came up with this delicious Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino recipe. I am not a coffee drinker, but I do have a weakness for Starbucks.
