Ingredients

  • 1 ounce tempered chocolate
  • 20 pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cranberries
  • 1 cacao nibs you could also use a nut

Instructions

  • Fill a piping bag with warm, tempered chocolate and cut a small hole across the end of the bag. 
  • Pipe a few circles of chocolate onto parchment paper on a baking sheet, the inside of a silicone cupcake tin, or chocolate disc molds. Don't make too many circles at once or you won't have time to attach the seeds before the chocolate hardens.
  • Bang the baking sheet, tin, or molds against a table to smooth out the chocolate. This makes a huge difference in the appearance of the discs.
  • Starting with the feathers in the back of the turkey, layer seeds to form feathers matching the image above.
  • Pipe a neck, head, scrawny legs, and feet out of chocolate onto each disc.
  • Attach the cranberry and the nib.
  • Leave at room temperature to harden. If not eating immediately, store in a sealed container.
