tutorial. It took about 10 minutes to make this turkey start to finish. I used air popped pop corn to make it healthier but I'm sure premade or microwave would work just as well.
Here is the inspiration version made in full size muffin tins with jelly beans. You could actually get more of the oval shape with the M&Ms too if you poked them in on their sides instead of flat. I used chocolate chip muffin mix so the chocolate buttons went better with the flavor. I think that the whole batch was about $5.00 and it only took about 30 minutes. The mini muffins cook in 10 minutes, then I pop them into the freezer to cool them and then I just tinted a tiny bit of premade frosting yellow. The tutorial is here.
