Twinkie Turkeys

This Twinkie Turkeys recipe looks like a lot of work, but the results are sooo cute! I’m going to grab my Twinkies & Starbursts the next time I’m at the store and give this a trial run. They’re going to look awesome on the Thanksgiving table this year!

Twinkie Turkeys Ingredients:

Twinkie Turkeys Directions:
  1. Place Twinkies in freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet or cutting board by covering with parchment or wax paper.
  3. Take each of the colors of the melting chips a place into separate zippered sandwich bags.
  4. Microwave each for 45 seconds and knead to insure that they are melted and smooth.
  5. Clip corner and pipe stripes to resemble feathers on the wafers.
  6. Place on prepared paper and into refrigerator for 10 minutes to set.
  7. Cut each Starburst in half diagonally and mold to resemble a beak. Set aside.
  8. Melt chocolate candy chips by microwaving 30 seconds then stirring and repeating until melted.
  9. Take each frozen Twinkie and make two cuts: a 45 degree cut and a vertical cut (see picture below).
  10. Take the straight end cut piece and dip in chocolate shaking off excess and place on paper.
  11. Take the middle piece and dip in chocolate shaking off excess and place on paper sandwiching the wafer between two pieces at the vertical cut.
  12. Dip remaining Twinkie piece in chocolate shaking off excess and place diagonal cut against other diagonal cut so that this “head” is oriented upwards.
  13. Place beak on the head.
  14. Place 2 eyes above the beak.
  15. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to set.
  16. Lift each Twinkie to separate from paper.
