Turkey Brownies

It's that time of year again.  The time for delicious smells coming from the kitchen and delicious food piled up on plates.  You know what I'm talking about.


This time of year is just so wonderful!  Everyone is just content sitting around the table and having a good conversation.  

But of course, it wouldn't be this time of year without the countless desserts that line the counter!  

These adorable little turkey's are perfectly festive and a great activity for you to do with your kids!  (Or younger cousins and siblings)  They have so much fun frosting them and decorating them up like turkeys!

They're also incredibly easy to pack up the ingredients and take them to wherever you're celebrating!

Turkey Brownies
Recipe Adapted from Crazy For Crust

Brownies (Homemade, or from a box)
Chocolate Frosting (Homemade, or from a can)
Candy Corn


Prepare brownies according to directions. Make them in a cupcake tin and only fill 1/3-1/2 full.  Make sure you spray your pan so they don't fall apart when you are trying to get them out!
After the brownies have cooled, frost the tops with your chocolate frosting.

For the decorating, you'll need four or five full pieces of candy corn for the feathers.  The eyes and nose are also made out of candy corn.  For the eyes, cut off the white tips and for the nose use the other part.  (You know what to do with the extra candy corn!)

I thought that the turkeys looked a little funny without pupils, so I added small dots of chocolate frosting to each white eye!  However, that step is completely optional!  

Enjoy making these delightful little desserts with the kiddos in your life!  I know I did!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! :)
