Ingredients

3/4
cup peanut butter
1
cup powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon vanilla
2
packets Gushers fruit snacks
1
Fruit Roll-Up (red and yellow)
1
Fruit Roll-Up (blue and green)
1/4
cup chocolate sprinkles
8
almond slices (cut just the 1/4
16
dried wild blueberries OR mini chocolate chips

Directions

  • 1 In a small bowl, use a fork or electric beater to mix the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla together. The mixture should resemble a soft clay. You want to be able to mold it and have it stay in place without melting. To firm up the mixture, add a tablespoon of powdered sugar at a time until the perfect consistency is reached. To soften the mixture, add a half-tablespoon of peanut butter until the perfect consistency is reached.
  • 2 Using 3/4 of the mixture, roll 8 balls the size of large grapes, then roll them into the chocolate sprinkles. Place these balls into a small candy wrapper. Roll the remaining mixture into 8 mini balls, about the size of a large blueberry. Gently press the blueberries for eyes and a small piece of sliced almond into the center for the beak. Place these small balls on top of the larger, chocolate spinkled balls.
  • 3 Gently set two Gushers into the two sides of the candy wrapper to form wings.
  • 4 Open and unroll the Fruit Roll-Ups. Cut them in half lengthwise, then press the red/yellow and green/blue pieces together to create a seam. With a pair of sharp scissors, cut this large, multi-colored piece of fruit roll-up into 3-4 inch by 2 inch squares. Gather them into fans then gently set these fans into the back of each candy wrapper to create tails.
  • 5 Refrigerate your sweet little turkeys until ready to serve.
