DIY Chocolate Turkey Pudding Cups!

Hey All!

Today I’m bringing you another fun Turkey themed Thanksgiving treat that would make a fun dessert for your guests this year.  Who doesn’t love a cute turkey themed treat on Thanksgiving? I know I do! Check out these DIY Chocolate Turkey Pudding Cups! The entire thing is edible and it’s essentially little chocolate shot glass made to look like a turkey and filled with tasty pudding. It’s super yummy and easy to make!

Here is how to make them!

  • 1 silicone shot glass mold (found at Michael’s)
  • 2 bags of Wilton Dark chocolate Candy Melts
  • 1 box ghiradelli white chocolate pudding
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 package of small edible eyes
  • 1 container of christmas light sprinkles
  • 1 package of chocolate fondant (Found at Michael’s)
  • 1 disposable piping bag
  • 1 mini christmas light cookie cutter

First you melt the dark chocolate candy melts in the microwave. Once they are melted, pour chocolate into the silicon molds and place into the freezer over night.Pour remaining chocolate into the piping bag and cut off a small part of the tip. This will act as the glue. Once you place the mold into the freezer start cutting the feathers and molding the legs with your fondant. Work with the fondant to make it soft. Sprinkle a little bit of powder sugar onto a cutting board and roll out using a rolling pin just like you would for cookie dough. Use the cookie cutter and cut out 5 light shapes for each cup. That’s a total 40 light shapes!

Using the remaining fondant, pinch off some fondant about the size of a skittle and roll into logs for the legs. About 2 legs for each cup so you will need 16 logs. Pinch off some more fondant about the size of a mini M&M for the feet and roll into logs. It will be 3 mini logs for each leg so 24 mini logs. You then place the mini logs into a V shape with the 3rd toe going into the middle.

Next you use the melted chocolate in the pipping bag to glue the feet together. Add a little bit in the middle of the feet to hold all three pieces together. Repeat these steps with remaining feet pieces. Let those dry completely before moving. Take 5 of the feather pieces and piece them together using a little bit of chocolate behind a feather piece to glue them together. Repeat these steps with remaining feather pieces. Once done you should have 8 sets of feathers.

Once you pull out the chocolate cups out of the silicone mold and place them onto a cutting board. Use the chocolate in the piping bag to act as a glue again. Take 2 eyes for each cup and add a small drop of melted chocolate onto the back of the eyes and place them onto the chocolate mold.

Place chocolate cup onto its back so that the eyes wont fall off while the chocolate is hardening. Add a drop of chocolate under the eyes and place a yellow and red christmas light sprinkle onto the melted chocolate for the beak and gobble. Repeat steps with remaining cups and let dry for 20 minutes.

After all is dry you pick the cups back up and put them into a sitting position. Add melted chocolate to the bottom part of the feather piece. Place feather piece onto the back part of the chocolate cup and hold for 2-3 minutes. With the cups still being cold from being in the freezer the melted chocolate should harden fast. Using a cup or can, place the feet up against the cup or can. Carefully place a leg close to the feet and add a little drop of melted chocolate where the leg and feet meet to connect them. Repeat these steps with remaining feet and legs.

You then lightly flatten the back of the leg and add a drop of melted chocolate to it.

Place the flattened part of the leg under the chocolate cup and make sure it’s secure to the cup with your melted chocolate. Repeat these steps with remaining legs and let the chocolate harden completely. You can put them in the freezer to make it harden faster.

You then move onto your pudding! Using a large mixing bowl, combine the pudding mix, milk and pumpkin pie spice and mix for 5 minutes until combined. Pull out the turkey cups from the fridge or freezer and Pipe the pudding into the chocolate cups!

That’s it! You’re done! Keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve or serve immediately!

I hope you and your Thanksgiving holiday guests love these DIY Chocolate Turkey Pudding Cups just as much as I do!
