Make a DIY Turkey chocolate sucker with only a few supplies to add a yummy addition to your Thanksgiving desert table.
But I have to admit, that I just love these turkey chocolate suckers. They are the cutest things and will make a great addition to my Thanksgiving dessert table, especially since they are not Pumpkin Pie related.
All you need to make these turkeys is this Candy Turkey Chocolate Sucker mold, some milk chocolate Candy Cocoa Melts, Lollipop Sticks , and a package of M and M candies.
Start by melting your chocolate in the microwave on 50% power for 2 minutes. Stir your chocolate and repeat. Keep an eye on it since you don't want it to burn. Trust me, burnt chocolate is HORRIBLE smelling.
Once you have your chocolate melted, spoon some into your turkey sucker mold and add your sucker stick. Turn the stick in the mold base to coat it completely. Now tap the mold carefully on the counter to bring all the air bubbles in the chocolate to the top.
Place your mold into the refrigerator for 10 minutes to set. Pop out the sucker from the mold when the back side looks clear and the chocolate has slightly pulled from the mold.
Dip the end of one of your sucker sticks into the melted chocolate and tap it into 3 of the indentions in the turkey sucker. Quickly add 3 different colored M and M candies on to the chocolate. I don't like to see the "M" on the candies, so I turn it upside down. Only work in small sections so the chocolate doesn't harden up before you can get the M and M on.
It won't take long, but once the candies are on your sucker, use a little bit of cling wrap or a small bag, and tie it on the turkey sucker with a matching bow.
Now you have a chocolate turkey that will be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner as a dessert, a party favor, a place card, or as a Thank you gift.
