Turkey Cake Cones...a dessert that the kids will love for Thanksgiving

We came up with this fun Turkey Cupcake Cones the other day and my boys and their friends just loved them! They are easy to make a great edible craft that the kids can help make as well! These would also be a fun Thanksgiving treat for a school class party! A great way to get rid of Halloween candy as well!

Turkey Cupcake Cones

1 Box of Chocolate Cake Mix (we like Pillsbury)
1 Can of Chocolate Frosting
Chocolate Ice Cream Cones
Assorted Starburst Candy
Pretzel Sticks
Tootsie Rolls
Edible Eyes

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Mix the cake mix according to directions on the box. Fill the chocolate cupcake cones just to the edge of where the wider opening starts. We like to bake our cupcake cones using a muffin pan. We line it with foil, poke holes in it, then place the cones in the holes. This prevents them from tipping over…

The Chocolate Cupcake Cones

Bake for about 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and then frost with the chocolate frosting. We put assorted colored Starburst candy in the microwave for 5 seconds to soften and then cut them in half. Shape the pieces into feathers and press on the top of a pretzel stick. Poke them in the back side of the cupcake cone. We did the same with the tootsie roll. Shape them into the heads and press on a pretzel stick. You might want to secure them on the pretzel stick using chocolate cookie frosting (we like Betty Crocker). Cut out pieces of other Starburst candy to make the beak, wattle and feet. We just pressed ours on and they stuck, but you can also secure with cookie frosting. We pressed on edible eyes as well.

    Those are so cute and fun to make with kids… Wish that my nieces and nephew would be around at Thanksgiving so that we could make them. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday. Remember to vote on Sunday. Would like it if you linked back to us. Thanks.

    What fun. Love the little feet. I just finished making some turkey shaped sweets too and had to add feet. I don't know why I think their feet are kind of cute!

  5. SUPER cute idea. We are doing a second dinner the weekend of Thanksgiving for a sister who can't make it until then and no one wants to make pie again. I think we'll just make these! The kids will like them better too 🙂
