Add variety to the typical Thanksgiving dessert options by making DIY turkey cupcakes from pre-made ingredients.


Thanksgiving dessert can range from the more sophisticated pies and tarts to the ‘cutesy’ cupcakes, and everything in between! Though grandma’s pecan pie may be the annual tradition to end the feast, consider adding on to your repertoire of dessert, with these adorable and easy-to-make turkey cupcakes that are sure to entertain and impress all ages. 

Though you are welcome to use your favorite cupcake and frosting recipe, you can make these semi-homemade by purchasing pre-made cupcakes, Nutter Butters, M&M’s or Mike & Ike’s, Twizzlers and candy eyes (which you can find at any craft store or Party City). All it takes is a few simple steps. 

Spread frosting on the Nutter Butter and attach two candy eyes. 

Then, either cut an M&M or Mike & Ike in half for the turkey’s beak and use frosting to attach it underneath the eyes. 

Lastly, cut the end of a Twizzler diagonally for the wattle ... and voila!
