For a lot of us, it has been a long time coming and for others like myself, I actually prefer to coast a bit to savor each moment of the Holidays so much more! Definitely not the sentiment of most local retailers who have had displays dedicated to all things Christmas from long before Halloween!
One of the things sites like Pintrest have done for me, is help me to explore ideas to make the Holidays even more fun and exciting for my kids. Check out this adorable idea from one of my favorite mom sites... "Mom's Living Well!"
Just precious for the kid's class Thanksgiving parties ... TURKEY POPS
What you will need: Lollipop sticks; Candy Corn; Small pretzel sticks; White Icing; Red Icing; Black Gel Icing; Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Drops (or you can substitute Whoppers or Junior Mints); and Double Stuff Oreos (make sure to get the Double Stuff so it holds everything together better)
Insert Lollipop stick, 5 candy corns, and 2 pretzel sticks into the Oreo crème.
Squirt a small amount of white icing onto the center of the Oreo.
Place a Hershey chocolate drop onto the top of the icing and press down gently.
Squirt 2 small drops of white icing on top of the Hershey chocolate for the eyes.
Dab a small amount of Black gel icing on top of the white icing. Gently squeeze the tube because the gel icing comes out fast!
Use the red icing to make the turkey’s snood (the red thing over the top of a turkey’s beak).
For the turkey’s nose, cut off the tip of a candy corn.
Place the tip of the candy corn on top of the red icing.
Place the turkey pops on a flat surface for the icing to harden. If you stand them up too early, the icing will drip down.
I bought a square piece of Styrofoam to stick the turkey pops in and painted it yellow.
