In this informative email, they had a recipe to make Turkey Pops. They are certain to please young palates everywhere.
The Kellogg's recipe used melted chocolate to coat the krispie, I used chocolate frosting. Chocolate frosting is quicker and more "user friendly". I also used the candy corn tips for eyes rather than purchase any small white candies.
For Thanksgiving I will go the "dipped in chocolate route", but for this example I felt the need to keep everything as simple as possible.
Rice Krispie Turkey Pops
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- - or -
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups rice krispie cereal (a shout out to Kelloggs for the great recipe)
- 1 container chocolate frosting
- 1 1/3 cups candy corn
- 24 lollipop sticks or wooden ice cream sticks
Directions1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using two butter coated sandwich bags, shape mixture into balls slightly larger than golf balls.
5. With chocolate frosting, coat the top half of the krispie ball. Add 4-5 candy corns (pressing top of candy corn down into ball) along top to create feathers. Add eyes.
6. Press candy corn into center for nose.
Arrange pops in a glass for easy transportation, and enjoy!
