1

Bake and frost 42 cupcakes. Prepare Royal Icing following instructions below. Note that the royal icing is not the same icing you will use for the cupcakes.

Tip

For each turkey you’ll need: 1 frosted cupcake, 1 REESE‘S Miniature, 2 candy eyes, 1 REESE’S Peanut Butter Chip, and 3 sections of KIT KAT® Wafer Bar.

2

To create each turkey head, use Royal Icing to attach candy eyes and REESE’S Peanut Butter Chips to each REESE’S Miniature Peanut Butter Cup. Reserve enough Royal Icing to make the feathers.

3

Break KIT KAT® Bars into individual fingers. Use the reserved Royal Icing to attach three REESE’S PIECES Candies to each KIT KAT® Bar piece.

4

Attach the heads and feathers to the frosted cupcakes to decorate them like turkeys. Then, serve!

Royal Icing: Stir together ingredients. Add additional water, ½ teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Cover with a damp paper towel to prevent icing from drying out.
