Here is a Yummy treat for the kids this Thanksgiving, Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pops. You have a Delicious Nutter Butter Cookie with Colorful Chocolate Feathers that everyone will love to eat. Not only do they taste good, but they will look great on your Table too.
Nutter Butter Cookies of course
Chocolate Melting Wafers Red, Orange & Yellow
Cookie Pop Sticks
3 Make n Mold Fine Point Decorating Bottles (Explained Below)
Edible Candy Eyes
Orange Starburst Candies (Optional)
Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pop Template
Click on Printables and print out the Turkey Template. Then I use a Clip Board to attach my Template too makes it easy and it holds it in place for when you add the chocolate. Then take a piece of Wax Paper and cover it up.
Next I created my Beaks using some Orange Starburst Candies I had on hand. This is optional you can also just create Beaks using some of the Orange Chocolate, but I wanted to add a little something extra. So all I did was Slice my Starburst and then cut out Triangles for the beaks. If you have a hard time cutting them you can stick them into the microwave for a few seconds to soften them up. I did not need to do that, but you can if needed.
The Make n Mold Decorating Bottles are just a plastic bottle I purchased at the Craft Store and they are used for Decorating with Melted Chocolate (These are my new favorite Toys). All you do is fill it up with the Chocolate Melting Wafers and Microwave it on 50% Power until the Chocolate Melts. Then you just add the Tip back on and you are ready for business.
The Bottle I used for the Yellow Chocolate is not a fine tip it is larger, BUT that is only because I did not have 3 of the fine tips on hand at the time. I recommend the Fine Tips.
So start with your Melted Yellow Chocolate and then fill in the center and the first section on the Feathers. Then Place on your Cookie Pop Stick and cover with some more of the Yellow Chocolate, then place your Nutter Butter Cookie on Top.
Next you will use your Melted Orange Chocolate to fill in the next section on the feathers making sure you touch the Yellow Chocolate so it all sticks together when set. Once you have the Orange done then take your Melted Red Chocolate and fill in the last section on the Feathers.
Now for my favorite part creating the Turkey Face. Using your Melted Chocolate as Glue add two dots where your eyes will go then place your Candy Eyes on Top. Then do the same for the Beak. Then using your Melted Red Chocolate add a Snood on the side of the Beak. Can I just say I did not know what that thing was called until I had to look it up for this post A Snood, what a weird word. It is just a flap of skin that hangs over the turkeys beak. It turns bright red when the turkey is upset or during courtship. Just some Education while I am at it in case you were not sure like me lol.
So there you have it The Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pop is Born !!! So once you are done with that stick it into the freezer for about 5 Minutes to harden and set. Then take it out and carefully remove the wax paper and it is ready.
To display them I took a Styrofoam Base and stuck the Cookie Pops in. I covered the base with some Shredded Paper that looked like Hay and added some Silk Fall Leaves Scattered on top. Perfect Centerpiece for your Kids Fall Party or Thanksgiving Day Dessert Table.
