How to Make Turkey Lollipops
This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below.
Putting together these turkey suckers is truly a simple process.
Start by sticking together 2 yellow Jolly Ranchers vertically, making sure that they are touching.
Then take your red, orange and green jolly ranchers and stick them above the yellow ones in a fan motion.
Also, be sure to leave enough space so that you will be able to place a lollipop stick in them later.
Once you have all your Jolly Ranchers in place pop them into the oven until the Jolly Ranchers melt together (should take around 5-6 minutes).
After removing from the oven immediately roll the end of a lollipop stick in each melted sucker towards the bottom.
Quickly add the candy eyes, Tic-Tacs and Red Hots.
If the suckers start to harden, grab a lighter. Carefully, hold the flame for a few seconds where you want the candies to go. The flame will melt the sucker just enough so that you can stick the candies on.
Then, let them set at room temperature until they harden (about 10 minutes). Now, they are ready to serve.
I hope you enjoyed this easy-to-make and super cute Thanksgiving dessert recipe.
Have a fantastic Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble!
