These have become our 'Thanksgiving tradition' since we saw them a couple of years ago. The candy corn is available in small bags at the HEB supermarket nearby. They have them year-round. I use the mini-M&Ms and I pull all the green ones aside. Instead of the black decorating gel, I use the chocolate frosting and dot pupils for the eyes on the green mini m&ms with a toothpick. I also usually ask the local bakery at the HEB to sell me a small quantity of yellow frosting (about $1) and I use a parchment pastry tube and a little #3 deco tube to pipe the legs and the beak. These are simple, fun and YUM! Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix in the bags are very, very good. Follow the directions and drop the cookies by spoonful on the cookie sheet. Bake about 13 minutes and they are terrific. Happy Thanksgiving!
