Strawberry Turkeys

While Stacia occupied herself in BAKING MODE and DECORATING MODE...Allie and I bonded by shoveling the driveway outside...and THEN....we decided to prove we are as good as any 12 year old on Tick Tock. I saw these earlier and thought it would be fun, as the oven is on the blink and we wouldn't have a turkey, to make these. Now, we WILL have a turkey  - Cory is bringing it. I'm making a ham in the Nesco. 

Allie - still attaching mallow and then pretzel to that...

We started with high hopes....these little strawberries were going to look just like turkeys....we watched a couple of times and commenced.  Hmmm....

We immediately began to wise crack about how OUR turkeys looked bowlegged, or like middle-aged men that couldn't get off the couch. One or two looked like they needed a restroom....We were having great fun! 

Stacia finally said, "I think you're supposed to stab the marshmallows and THEN attach them." AH....yes, that did make a difference. 

She went on to say, "Normally I just watch until the two of you work it out or it blows up!" ::snort:: Can you believe the bake snobbery going on in THIS house? It's kinda perfect.  We laughed so hard we had to make a video clip in case we ever start a you tube channel of "Real Cooking." 

In the end, I think they turned out good. The legs fell off when we dipped them, so we ended up coating one side while we held them....but it will be quite enough chocolate.

I love to work in the kitchen with friends and family. Stacia doesn't appreciate our help with cake decorating (understandable). THIS was perfect. We set up at the table and had a blast. Stacia worked in the kitchen and had a blast...WE provided levity for her stressful moments.  It worked well. Lots of laughing...stress and peeling and such tomorrow. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
