Candy Turkeys Video Transcript

Hi, I’m Chef Ted, and I’m here at the Rada Cutlery kitchen. Today we’re going to make some Candy Thanksgiving Turkeys.

I’m going to take 1 cup of some semi-sweet chocolate chips, I’m using the Rada Quick Grip Clips, which are great for keeping things fresh, great at keeping things from spilling, and this where you would use your double boiler, unless you have one of those handy induction range tops like I’ve got.

While I am getting this chocolate to melt down over here I’m going to break out some chocolate crème sandwich cookies. We’re going to twist them apart.

Then I’m going to take a snack-size peanut butter cup and put a little chocolate on it. Then I’m going to press it into the Oreo like so. Then I’m going to take some candy corn. These are going to be your feathers. You stick that into the filling of the sandwich cookie. Then you push this right into the base of the cookie.

Then I’m going to take a malted milk ball, put a little more chocolate on that, put it right up here on the top of it. Then I’m going to take one of the paring knives and am going to cut a tip off the piece of candy corn. Going to dip that in some of the chocolate and that’s going to become our beak.

After you get it this far you want to refrigerate about 10 minutes until the chocolate sets. Then I’m going to use a bit of ready-made red frosting.

And there you have it, the Turkey Treats! Great for Thanksgiving, and it’ll be fun for the kids to help you put them together!
