Turkey Pops

I can't believe it has been over two weeks since i have posted anything! It has been a busy month! I have two more recipes to post that I will do tomorrow, since I have the day off for American Thanksgiving. This one is a treat I made for my co-workers for today. I found it on Pintrest and followed the pin to Kellogg's Rice Krispies site. 

Of course, nothing ever turns out like the picture (seen here) but here they are. Basically you make rice krispie squares, but instead of cutting them into squares you roll them into balls.

The recipe said to dip them then stick them, but i found it easier to dip with the sticks already on them. I used a bit of royal icing to make the eyes, beak and waddle.

I had a hard time making the balls, so I just panned it, cooled it and cut it, then squished each square into a ball. The recipe said it makes 24, but I got about 30. Plus a few leftover squares. I used melted chocolate chips with a bit of shortening to thin it out for the chocolate dip. And i also realized after completing them all, i put the candy corn on upside down. Oops.

We are currently getting our first big storm of the season. We are supposed to get about 6 inches of snow and then rain on top of that. I'm glad I got my winter studded tires on this past weekend, perfect timing! I do not have to leave for work for another 3 hours, so I am thinking of going for a walk, maybe I will take some pictures of the snow before the rain takes it away!

Hope everyone is having a great week! Happy Thanksgiving to my American Neighbours!
