The Pin Junkie: Hershey's Turkey Nuggets

Hershey's Turkey Nuggets

Hershey's Turkey Nuggets

These are better than chicken nuggets - they're turkey nuggets!  (and they're made of chocolate!)

The hardest part of this project is not eating all of the candy in the bag before you're ready to make the project!  (I struggled with this part!)

The idea for this project came from Jill's Ink and is pinned from my Crafts - Paper pinterest board.  I had to do some improvising, since I didn't have all the needed materials.

You'll need:
a bag of Hershey's Nuggets
paper
scissors
glue

The original directions said to use a 1" inch circle punch for the head.  I didn't have one, so I just used a quarter to trace a circle.  The directions also call for googly eyes (which I also didn't have), so I just used a black marker to draw the eyes.  You'll also need to cut a 1" wide paper strip to wrap around the Hershey's Nugget.


The directions also say to use a scalloped hole punch for the tail.  Since I didn't have a scalloped hole punch, I cut out circles using scalloped scissors.  You'll need three paper circles in different colors.


Glue the three circles together but stagger them a little.  Then trim the bottom of the three paper circles to make it look a little more like turkey feathers.  Then just glue everything together.

I made these for friends at work, but this would be a great project for kids to do.
