Turkey Cupcakes- Big Green House

Turkey Cupcakes- Looking for a fun, simple and quick dessert for your Thanksgiving dessert table? Look no further! These turkey cupcakes are just what you need. Chocolate cupcakes topped with chocolate frosting and decorated to look like a cute gobbler.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Chocolate cake mix + ingredients called for on box
  • 16 oz chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • M & M candies
  • Candy corn
  • Edible candy eyes

Chocolate Cake Mix: Any brand or chocolate variety will work. Just be sure to stick with a “standard” size box of cake mix. Anywhere from 15-18 oz is fine.

Want to Make Your Chocolate Cupcakes Homemade? This cake batter will also make cupcakes. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes. Makes 24 cupcakes.

Chocolate Frosting: Same as the cake mix. Use your favorite brand/chocolate flavor. See directly below for a few homemade ideas.

M & M Candies: We used regular chocolate M & M’s for our candies. I purchased a regular package and used only the red, brown, yellow and orange colors.

Edible Candy Eyes: In my grocery store, the edible candy eyes are located in the baking aisle. They were located in the section with birthday candles, sprinkles and cupcake wrappers. If you can’t locate them in a store, see the recipe card to purchase them from Amazon.

How to Make:

  • First, prepare cupcakes according to box instructions/recipe. Let them cool completely.
  • Next, frost cooled cupcakes.
  • Sprinkle top of the frosted cupcakes with chocolate sprinkles.
  • Place candy eyes in the middle of the cupcakes. Then, place an M & M candy vertically underneath the eyes.
  • Gently insert a few candy corn above the eyes to create feathers.
  • Enjoy!

Storage: Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.
