Turkey Treats

We made these cute little Turkey Treats for school this week.  My kids loved helping make them and their friends loved eating them!  So fun!

This idea was another great Pinterest find.  Rather than attach each piece of candy with melted chocolate, I just put a blob of melted chocolate in the middle and let my kids add the candy.  I think that was faster and more fun for the kids.  So, I didn't use the chocolate wafer.  I also used Reese's Pieces in place of the orange M&M just because there are more orange candies in a bag of Reese's Pieces.  I would have for sure used M&Ms, if there had been a nut allergy in my child's class.

  1. These are really cute and my son loves rice cereal treats. When I got home with the candy corn, I noticed an egg warning on the label :/
    Do you have a specific brand of candy corn that you have found that are egg-free?
    If so, what brand and where did you purchase them?

    1. I usually use Brach's Candy Corn. Egg is not an ingredient for that brand, but it may be processed in a facility with products containing egg. My husband's egg allergy isn't so sensitive that he can't have things processed in the same facility. Egg just cannot be an ingredient. From the Brach's website:

      Sugar, Corn Syrup, Confectioner's Glaze, Salt, Dextrose, Gelatin, Sesame Oil, Artificial Flavor, Honey, Yellow 6, Yellow 5, Red 3.

      This product was manufactured in a facility where milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy are used in the production of other products.

    2. I also found online that Jelly Belly makes an egg-free candy corn. That information came from an allergy website. So, I would check the label. Maybe that brand doesn't cross process. They do have a peanut-free facility so maybe they are a little more allergen friendly. I hope these comments are helpful and you find some candy corn so you can make these cute treats this year!
