When I was small I had a tradition of making gumdrop turkeys, using toothpicks to hold the gumdrops together. Each person had a candy turkey as their place setting.
I’ve carried on this tradition with my granddaughter. We’ve made our own funny version, usually using sour gummy worms, candy corns, and whatever else we choose each year. They turn out pretty hilarious, and we’ve given in to using a glue gun, instead of trying to stick everything together using toothpicks. Needless to say, the turkeys are not edible; they are for looks only! We have lots of fun and laughs making them!
