You’ll need:

  • 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.
