Thanksgiving Cupcakes

  • yield: Makes 18





  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread coconut on a small baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool.

  2. Step 2

    Ice cupcakes with chocolate buttercream. Dip top of each cupcake in coconut to cover; set aside.

  3. Step 3

    To make the turkey heads: Stick the point of a wet toothpick into the side of a marshmallow in two spots, about 1/2-inch apart. Fill the holes with chocolate sprinkles to resemble eyes. Cut a small triangular piece of gummy fish from the head of a fish, to resemble a beak. Cut a small slit in the marshmallow below the eyes, and insert the beak. Place marshmallow head on cupcake. Repeat with remaining marshmallows.

  4. Step 4

    To make the tail feathers: Insert 4 gummy fish, tails first, into each cupcake across from the heads.
