  • Cream 1/4 cup butter and sugar together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add egg and vanilla extract; mix well. Stir flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until batter is smooth. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 14 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine butter, cocoa powder, and milk in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar and mix until frosting is smooth and fluffy.

  • Spoon frosting in a piping bag fitted with a Wilton #10 tip. Pipe a circle of frosting near the bottom half of each mini brownie to create the turkey's head. Add two candy eyes. Add 1 red chocolate piece to form the beak. Pipe 5 lines of frosting in the shape of a semi-circle formation coming up from the head. Place a piece of candy corn on each of the 5 lines to form the turkey's feathers.

Super easy and people loved them. I did make pumpkin mini muffins as well! I put icing on each one in a circle. It held candy corn and the rest better. Thanks for the great idea Read More

I made this cute recipe following the recipe. It turned out great even though my oven wouldn t get over 286. (I just had to bake them longer). I took them to an Elks Thanksgiving dinner. The only problem: people were not sure if they were a decoration or a dessert. Read More

These are adorable! I m sure that the recipe for the brownies and icing were delicious but I went the easy way and bought icing and store brand brownie bites. We had an afternoon decorating session. Very fun and easy. Read More
