Turkey Cupcakes


  • 20-24 unfrosted cupcakes
  • 20-24 Hershey Kisses
  • 1 C. white chocolate chips-I used white Melts divided
  • Orange gel food dye see notes below
  • Mini chocolate M&Ms
  • Chocolate frosting or chocolate peanut butter
  • 1 bag Reese's Pieces


  1. First you'll make the turkey faces. Unwrap all Hershey Kisses.

  2. Melt 1/4 C. or the white chocolate and stir in orange gel food dye. The liquid dye will cause the chocolate to seize so don't use that. OR you can use orange frosting! Dip the tip of each Kiss into the orange chocolate and let cool-see photos below.

  3. After the "beak" has cooled, use a red mini M&M and dip the side of it into the left over orange chocolate and press onto the beak as the "gobble." See photos.

  4. To make eyes, melt the rest of the white chocolate and use a small ziplock bag to make a mini piping bag by cutting off the corner. Pipe little dollops out and then press a brown or blue mini M&M into the chocolate while still warm and let cool.

  5. Use melted while chocolate or frosting to place the eyes onto the Kisses.

  6. Frost all your cupcakes.

  7. Use your Reese's Pieces to create "feathers" and work from the outside in, one color at a time. See photos. I did the same color order every time but feel free to mix it up! You can ever use candy corn instead if you prefer!

  8. Place a Hershey Kiss "face" in the center when you're done!

  9. Gobble, gobble!

Recipe Notes

You can use store bought candy eyes to simplify the design!
