While I may always be rushing to the store the last day a coupon is good, waiting for the dryer to finish so I don’t have to go to work without pants, and entering online contests in the last few minutes they run, when it comes to researching holiday treat ideas, I’m never running late! When it comes to actually making them I may cut it close, but I love browsing around looking for the cutest, most colorful, candy-packed recipes I can find. And I love eating them, too!

I may have mentioned last month that I’m a candy corn aficionado. It’s not my most favorite candy ever, but I sure do enjoy it just fine! However, as I also may have mentioned last month, I buy too much of it every year. Even when the season begins, it’s an awesomely cheap treat. And once Halloween is over and it goes on sale, it’s practically free! So yeah – I overbuy. But not one to waste sugary goodness, every year I look for a fun Thanksgiving dessert that incorporates candy corn into the recipe. This year I think that recipe I’ll be whipping up is these Candy Turkeys. Don’t they look gobble-gobble-good?!

This is a more adventurous endeavor than some other desserts I’ve made, but I’m excited to try some new things. I’m also excited to know that I can hide any mistakes I make by eating the evidence! What desserts are on your Thanksgiving agenda? Please share in the comments! 🙂
