Y’all know I’m not a baker, and not too crazy about sweets.
However, I do have a family and they definitely are on the extreme end of being crazy about them. These are not difficult at all and the kids can help you out with them.
I got this recipe from Sweet Tooth. What a great idea.
If you haven’t noticed yet – I forgot the beaks! Oh well…they were still enjoyed and talked about and loved.
But it does look like they’re smiling (at least one of them), and the one in the back is obviously eating, no?
Turkey Brownie Balls
3/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 whole eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 bag candy corn
1 box Whoppers candy
1 box Passion Cherry Tic-Tacs
1 bag peppermint pearls
7 oz melting chocolate
For the brownies: (These are Sweet Tooth’s directions)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Beat together butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs
In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients and then slowly add the mixture to the wet
Mix in the chocolate chips until well-combined
Pour batter into a 9×13″ well-greased pan and bake for 22-25 minutes
Let brownies cool
With your hands, form 1″ balls with the cooked brownies
Lay them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
Use the edible marker to draw pupils on the peppermint pearls
Melt 1 square of baking chocolate according to the package’s directions
Using a toothpick, use the melted chocolate as glue to attach the pearls and tic tacs to the Whoppers. Let these dry for about 20 minutes
Melt 1 box (6 squares) of baking chocolate according to the package’s directions
Dunk each brownie ball into the melted chocolate with a spoon, tapping the spoon on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate
Place the ball back on the parchment paper covered cookie sheet, and attach the Whopper head and 3 candy corns.
Sorry little beakless brownie turkeys…..next year I’ll remember. I promise 😉
