Makes 42 cupcakes
Gobble gobble…welcome a few extra turkeys to your table with this fun Thanksgiving themed cupcake recipe with edible KIT KAT tail feathers.
2 1/2 cups chocolate frosting
84 candy eyes
42 REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips
42 REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures
32 KIT KAT Milk Chocolate Bars
1/2 cup REESE’S PIECES Candies
1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
1/2 tsp warm water (will vary based on desired consistency)
3/4 tsp meringue powder (pasteurized dried egg whites)
1.Bake and frost 42 cupcakes. Prepare Royal Icing following instructions below. Note that the royal icing is not the same icing you will use for the cupcakes.
2.To create each turkey head, use Royal Icing to attach candy eyes and REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips to each REESE’S Miniature Peanut Butter Cup. Reserve enough Royal Icing to make the feathers.
3.Break KIT KAT Bars into individual fingers. Use the reserved Royal Icing to attach three REESE’S PIECES Candies to each KIT KAT Bar piece.
4.Attach the heads and feathers to the frosted cupcakes to decorate them like turkeys. Then, serve!
Stir together ingredients. Add additional water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Cover with a damp paper towel to prevent icing from drying out.
