When you think Thanksgiving foods, there’s turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, apple pie…

Where’s the chocolate?

I know, so much food—but you gotta have chocolate, right? Here’s a way to dress up some store-bought truffles for Thanksgiving.

These pudgy little turkey truffles are super easy to make and so freakin’ adorable! Set one on each plate for your guests or make up a whole tray of turkeys!

Here’s what you’ll need: milk chocolate truffles, autumn candy corn, sliced almonds, milk chocolate candy coating wafers, a black edible marker and a strawberry Fruit by the Foot™.

First, microwave the candy coating according to package instructions. Now place a dollop of chocolate onto wax or parchment paper, about the size of a quarter. You can spoon it on, but I used a piping bag. Next place 5 sliced almonds on the melted chocolate in a fan-like pattern for the feathers.

While the chocolate is still melted, but NOT HOT, unwrap a truffle and stick it in the middle. Let set completely.

Gather up your autumn candy corn. This is different from your run of the mill average candy corn—it has an orange tip instead of the traditional white tip. Perfect for making turkey beaks! Slice off the tip of the autumn corn for the beak.

Attach the candy corn beak by dipping in the cut end of the candy into leftover melted chocolate and placing it in the middle of the truffle.

Cut the Fruit by the Foot™ into small teardrop shapes for the wattle (yeah, I had to Google the name of that red turkey thingy). Wattle is a great name for it!

Dip the end of the Fruit by the Foot™ into the melted chocolate and place it under the beak.

Add 2 dots with a black edible marker for eyes.

Now you have sweet turkeys that are almost too cute to gobble!
