Gobble, Gobble

This has been a craft that my family and I have made as long as I can remember.  These turkeys are so easy and fun to make for kids and adults alike.  Parent's will especially like them because there is virtually no mess... oh, and you can eat the chocolate icing along the way!

1 can of chocolate icing
1 bag of candy corn
1 bag of chocolate covered cream drops
1 package of fudge striped cookies

1.  Spread icing on the bottom of the cream drops and place them on edge of the cookies, with the cookies stripes going vertically.
2.  Turn a candy corn on its side and apply a thin layer of icing.  Place on top of the cream drop.
3.  Cut of the white tips of two candy corn and spread icing on them.  Place them on the underside of the cream drop.
4.  Allow the icing to dry before standing the turkeys upright.
5.  Enjoy!

Wash, dry, remove the stems, and insert a popsicle stick into the apples.  Combine 1 tablespoon of water and the bag of caramels in a saucepan, stirring often, until all caramels are melted.  Dip and spoon the caramel over apples.
