A festive way to serve a "turkey" for Thanksgiving, this pudding is an easy dessert for the kids to make.


  • 2, 3.4-ounce, boxes vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1, 15-ounce, can sliced peaches packed in fruit juice, drained
  • 1 oval shortbread cookie
  • 1 candy corn
  • 1 small sliver of red licorice
  • 1 mini chocolate chip


  1. Make pudding with milk according to package directions; transfer to a shallow, round baking dish and chill.
  2. Arrange peach slices against the left side of the dish to form turkey feathers for the tail. Place the shortbread cookie horizontally. 2-inches from the upper right side of the dish to form the head.
  3. Stick the wide edge of the candy corn gently underneath the pudding, pointing toward the right edge of the dish to form the beak. Lay the red licorice crosswise over the candy corn, letting it extend 1/4-inch below the beak. Place the mini chocolate chip on the cookie to form an eye.
