Thick cake frosting

Steps in Making DIY Thanksgiving Turkey Macarons

Step 1 — Fill the macarons with melting chocolate wafers.

Step 2 — Wrap the macaron cookie in enough wafers to reach halfway.

Step 3 — Using a dab of frosting, “glue” the Snowball Melty on the cookie to make it look like a turkey nose.

Step 4 — To make the eyes, use a dab of frosting to “glue” two white pearl sprinkles together. Set it aside for a few minutes to harden.

After the frosting has been set, display the turkeys upright with these pumpkin place cards or on the table for guests and children to enjoy!
