Time to Gobble, Gobble!
‘Tis the season to eat, loosen your belt, then eat some more. Better yet, forget the belt, forget all the buttons, and go with elastic-waisted pants. This is Thanksgiving, after all. And if you’re not careful, you’ll shoot an eye out.
Because there can’t be too much food on the holiday table…
Here’s a little something to gobble up for dessert.
Chocolate Turkey Cup
- chocolate melts (asst. colors)
- Hershey kiss
- gummy worm
- chocolate chip
- candy eyes
Coat a paper muffin liner with melted chocolate. Chill. Meanwhile, dip Pretzel sticks into chocolate. Dip the tip of the Kiss into orange chocolate for the beak. Dip a piece of the gummy worm into red chocolate. After all pieces have set, attach pretzel feathers, eyes, head, and gummy worm with more chocolate. (I attached a chocolate chip to the outside of the cup first, to prop up the head.)
Fill with candy, mousse, or ice cream. Enjoy!

No, we’re not talking about actual dirt. We’re talking about Dirt Cups. And if you’re a parent, you’re probably more than familiar with them. Kids love the staple ingredients to this dessert- crushed Oreos and gummy worms.

My jeans are yelling, “You’ve been eating Fall desserts every single day.”
