Candy Corn Thanksgiving Turkey Lollipops

candy-corn-turkeys

I have the solution for candy corn overload this coming holiday. Take those Halloween treats and turn them into Thanksgiving turkeys! Through a little bit of trial and error I was able to perfect this recipe to turn candy corn into Thanksgiving turkey chewy lollipops.

I’m not normally cutsie creative, I don’t know what came over me. But my littlest son was delighted by these colorful turkeys. Of course, he was more excited about the prospect of a sugared treat. This guy is all about dessert, all the time.

I did a little experimenting with the baking the candy corn to net out with the right formula. I also originally just purchased one variety of candy corn and then went back to the store to buy two more kinds.

This would be a great activity to do with little kids as it takes a bit of hand/eye coordination that preschools love to practice. In the picture above you’ll notice the three stages needed to build the turkeys before heading into the oven.

The first stage requires shaping candy corn into a circle on top of a lollipop stick.

Stage two requires three different candy corn placed on top as featured in the picture above. And the final stage of building needs one Apple Mix candy corn, making sure to select one with a red end.

After assembling {and being careful not to jolt} I placed the pile of candy corn into the oven. I cooked the turkeys at 250* degrees for about ten minutes. You’ll definitely want to watch the candy corn carefully. If you let them bake too long they end up being a mess. The key is to take them out just as soon as you see they are soft, but not melting.

Once they are taken out of the oven, I attempted to secure some candy eyes. The eyes ended up not sticking on so well, so I took a little frosting I had on hand {in the color green} to secure any loose eyes. I just happened to have green frosting on hand, but white would probably work best.

    My iJAG class is having a Thanksgiving party on the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving break and this is perfect for the party. It’s great for Thanksgiving and I hope my classmates love it. 🙂

  4. no suggestion on OVEN TEMPERATURE for recipe

    • I suggest 250 degrees, but you’ll want to watch them carefully. I left my first batch in the oven too long and they melted together too much. Make sure to take them out just when they are first starting to melt.

  5. Oh my word!! These are some of the cutest turkey treats I’ve ever seen!! As a total (melted) lollipop nut, these are the bomb! 🙂
