6 candy corns

1 malted milk ball

1/2-inch length of red whip licorice

1 pair candy eyes (or white decorator icing)

A small amount of icing for glue
Insert 1/2 of a Keebler Fudgestripe Cookie into a frosted cupcake.
Insert 5 candy corns in front of the cookie to create tail feathers.
Use a malted milk ball to create the head.
Use a small amount of icing to adhere the tip of a candy corn onto the head for a beak.

Press the malted milk ball toward to front of the cupcake.
Insert a small piece of red licorice whip for the wattle.

In microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips and oil. Microwave on high for 1-1/2  minutes. Stir until smooth.
Dip each ball into chocolate. Return to wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes more or until chocolate is almost set.
Insert 3 candy corn for tail feathers . Cut the white tip off another candy corn; press into chocolate for the beak. Press in candy eyes, or pipe them on with white decorator icing. Let stand until firm.
Ingredients are per cocktails
Some layered cocktails require careful pouring of the ingredients down the back of a spoon. This one seems to hold up without using a spoon, but do pour slowly to achieve the layers.
All ingredients should be well chilled.
1 part coconut cream

1 part Stirrings peach flavored mixer

1 part banana liqueur

Splash of coconut rum
Pour coconut cream into the bottom of a martini glass.

Top with peach mixer.
