Ingredients for Reese's Turkeys

Gather these ingredients to craft your delightful Reese's Turkeys:

- 12 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

- 12 Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups

- 1 cup of Reese's Pieces

- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips

- 1/2 Tablespoon of shortening

- 24 Candy Eyes

Crafting Your Reese's Turkeys

Here's how you can create these charming Reese's Turkeys step by step:

1. Melt the Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and shortening. Heat this mixture for about 25 seconds, stir well, and reheat if necessary.

2. Preparation is Key: Lay out all your ingredients to work seamlessly and swiftly during the crafting process.

3. Chocolate Base: Use a spoon to add approximately half a teaspoon of the melted chocolate on top of each Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Ensure the entire top is covered smoothly with chocolate.

4. Assemble the Body: Place a Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cup at the bottom center of the Reese's Cup.

5. Creating Feathers: Encircle the Reese's Mini with an arc of a single color of Reese's Pieces. Repeat this step with a second color, creating a second arc around the first. Lastly, place a third color arc on the outer edges of the Reese's Cup to form the vibrant turkey feathers.

6. Adding Personality: Affix the Candy Eyes to the top half of the Reese's Mini using a small amount of melted chocolate. For the beak, use an orange or red Reese's Piece and attach it accordingly.

7. Repeat and Enjoy!: Repeat these steps until all 12 Reese's Cups are transformed into charming chocolate turkeys.
