I know there’s a lot of preparation for Thanksgiving, but put aside a few minutes to make these adorable caramel turkeys, you can use these to top a cake, use as a place setting or just a big bowl of them for a whimsical snack!

You’re bound to get a laugh when your guests see these 😂

Grab a bag of caramels and some non stick spray such as Pam

For each turkey, lightly spray a microwave safe plate and place three unwrapped caramels on it

Microwave in increments of 10 seconds until the caramels are pliable but not melted and be careful they get hot

I roll the three caramels into one ball, and then separate into pieces to make the shapes above

Assemble your turkey by pressing all the pieces together as seen above. These can be made ahead of time and placed in a freezer until you’re ready to use.
