Rumor has it that I was cleverly potty trained with candy corn. Not surprising then that it hold a dear place in my heart since I was young.

Making these Pumpkin Pie Turkeys is as easy as pie! You’ll need:
Step 1 – Cut Out Circles in Pumpkin Pie
The easiest way to do this is by using a biscuit cutter. You can use a cookie cutter as well, but I like the depth of the biscuit cutter a little better. Cut out as many as you can from your pie. Depending on the size of the pie, you’ll get 4-6 circles.
(Note: this pie was an extra large Costco version 🙂 )
Step 2 – Melt Chocolate Chips and Cut Reese’s Pieces in Half
Step 3 – Attach Peanut Butter Cup to Pumpkin Pie
After you’ve unwrapped your peanut butter cup, affix it to your pumpkin pie circle narrow side down on the lower half with a little melted chocolate.
Step 4 – Attach Candy Eyeballs and Reese’s Pieces
On top of the peanut butter cup, attach two candy eyeballs with melted chocolate. Then take half a Reese’s Pieces and attach it long ways under the eyes with chocolate to make the beak.
Step 5 – Apply Candy Corn Feathers
Place 5 pieces of candy corn at the top of the circle to form tail feathers, narrow side pointing down.
Let the chocolate harden and serve!
Tips for Making Pumpkin Pie Turkeys
- As I mentioned, I like a 1.5 inch biscuit cutter to make the round turkey bodies, but a round cookie cutter of the same size will also work.
- These Pumpkin Pie Turkeys will last a couple days in the refrigerator, but serving them soon after making them is best.
