How cute are these Nutter Butter Turkey Cupcakes?   They’re another fun way to use the Wilton Candy Eyes I love so much (who doesn’t love the silly faces they create?!) These guys (and gals) are a fun Thanksgiving Recipe for Kids.   Because the kiddos will love to help you assemble them – AND “Gobble” them up!

Nutter Butter Turkey Cupcake Instructions

You’ll need:

  • Candy corn
  • Nutter Butter cookies
  • M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, Dots, Tic-Tacs or other Orange Candy
  • Wilton Candy Eyes
  • Red licorice

Step #1 – Bake cupcakes per instructions on the box.


Step #2 – Allow your cupcakes to cool, then frost with chocolate frosting.

Step #3- Meanwhile, assemble the Nutter Butter turkeys.  Use a little white frosting to attach the Wilton Candy Eyes, orange candy nose, and red licorice wattle to the turkey.
