    For each turkey you will need: 1 frosted cupcake, 1 marshmallow, 1 baking chip, 3 KIT KAT Bar sections and 3 REESE'S PIECES Candies.

  1. Bake and frost cupcakes. Prepare ROYAL ICING.

  2. To create turkey's beak, attach baking chip to the side of white marshmallow with icing. Pipe or dab brown icing onto marshmallow for the turkey's eyes.

  3. To create the tail feathers, break KIT KAT Bars along the natural breaking points. Attach on REESE'S PIECES Candy to the end of each bar section with icing.

  4. Assemble the turkey by inserting three "tail feathers" into cupcake with the candy piece at the top. Set the marshmallow head in front of the feathers, pressing gently into the icing. For a fun twist, serve cupcakes with a side of syrup for gravy.

    ROYAL ICING: Stir together 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons warm water and 3/4 teaspoon pasteurized dried egg whites (meringue powder). Beat until spreadable. Add additional water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to get desired consistency. Tint with food color, if desired. Cover icing with damp paper towel to keep icing from drying out. About 1/4 cup icing.
