Gobbling-Good Cupcakes

If you want to hatch a novel holiday dessert that your kids can help make, these tasty turkeys fit the bill. They're also great for a classroom party.

Ingredients:

24 frosted cupcakes
24 Nutter Butter cookies
2-3 Tablespoons of white frosting or decorator's gel
Mini chocolate chips
Fruit leather, various flavors and colors
toothpicks

Instructions:

To make each turkey: Press the lower portion of a Nutter Butter cookie into a frosted cupcake for the bird's head.
Use tiny dabs of frosting to stick on mini-chocolate chip eyes and a red fruit leather wattle.
For each turkey's tail: Use a butter knife to cut out 12 feather shapes (about 3-inches long and 1-inch wide) from fruit leather.
Lay 6 of the feather shapes on a flat surface and place a wooden toothpick lengthwise atop each so that one end of the toothpick extends about an inch below the feather. Layer another fruit leather feather layer atop each of the 6 shapes, sandwiching the toothpicks between them.
Press the 2 layers together to make them stick, then fringe the edges of the feather with a butter knife.
Now your child can stick the colored feathers into the cupcake behind the cookie head.
