Nutter Butter Turkey Cupcakes
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
- One box cake mix (I chose chocolate)
- Chocolate frosting
- 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.
Step #4 – Press about six candy corn candies into the back of the cupcake for the turkey’s feathers.
Step #5 – Next, gently press the Nutter Butter cookie into the cupcake as well. Enjoy!
