Rated 3 out of 5 by buttercreamgal from The idea here was adorable. I made some changes to accommodate product I didn't own, like the sports ball pan. I just cut out a big circle to make the turkey body. The trouble I had was making the sticks stay on the backs of the cookies so everything would stay in place. I might just need more practice with the candy melts, but it was hard to find a balance between too much and not enough. The sticks either broke the cookies(too much candy "glue") or they fell off repeatedly. I also purchased ready-made pumpkins to cut down on all the steps. I think it would help having different lengths of the sticks, as well, to cut down on the guesswork of where to place the sticks, and get a mote accurate tiered effect We made some other changes that did work, like thinned cookie icing which we dipped the feathers in to add some dimension to the colors and make the more "feathered" Lastly, be careful if you change the cookie recipe. We went with a gingerbread, but it was too soft. Make sure you have a stiffer cookie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by achil from This is such a cute idea and everyone really did "Gobble it up." It was fairly easy, the hardest part was getting the chocolate shell just the right thickness so it wasn't too thick to hold the candy or too thin to get it out of the pan. It turned out really cute!
