  • Cupcakes
  • Chocolate Icing
  • Rainbow Twizzlers
  • Werthers's Butterscotch candies
  • Candy corn
  • orange M&Ms


  • Ice cupcakes
  • Cut 7 pieces of different colored Twizzlers to 2 1/2 " long. Can vary lengths if desired.
  • Press Twizzler tail feathers into icing and even further into cupcake so feathers won't fall out. They may lean back a bit, so try to make rather straight.
  • Press head (werther's candy) into position and then add a candy corn for beak and M&M for the gobbler.
  • With a toothpick, add two dots of icing for eyes on the head.
  • Gobble! Gobble!
