I am not one to get creative in the cooking/baking department, but I caught these while scrolling through a BuzzFeed '49 Pinterest Mess-ups' list. As I was laughing at the comparisons, these ones caught my eye and I decided to make them for my loved ones this Thanksgiving. They came out pretty well!

I would recommend when placing the candy corn to put one in first then balance the other two on each side. This will allow the chocolate to evenly distribute over and when they cool, they will hold in place. I ended up doing half the wrong way and some of my Turkey's only have 1 or 2 feathers.. Thats ok though, my nieces and nephews hopefully won't notice!

Ingredients Needed? Rolo Chocolates, Pretzels, Candy Corn, Reese's Pieces (I cut them in half using a pill slicer) and Candy Eyes. Mommy Octopus called for White Candies and to get the eyes you would dip a toothpick in the melted chocolate and dot on. I just so happened to stumble across candy eyes at Target!

Start by placing three candy corn in the main weave of the pretzel then balance a Rolo in the center. Put in the oven (300 degrees F) for 5-6 minutes to melt the candy together.

Smoosh the candy eyes into the melted Rolo then place one half of a Reeses Pieces in between each eye for the beak.

Let cool in the fridge for 20 minutes then enjoy!

Aren't they cute?! I love how each of them has a different personality. I'm done being all Suzy-Homemaker now.. Back to makeup land where I belong. To see the original post that I got the idea from, click here! (Yes her's are better than mine.. I KNOW!)  MommyOctopus
