These Gumdrop Candy Peacocks are almost more fun to make than they are to eat. Kids will love making these colorful birds and then being able to snack on them later.

Gumdrop Candy Peacocks
Granulated Sugar
Prep time :


  • 6 large gumdrop fruit slice candies
  • 66 small gumdrops
  • 12 candy eye balls
  • 6 fruit-flavored breath mintd
  • 12 dried stands of spaghetti noodles
  • Royal Icing


  1. Prepare Royal Icing.
  2. To create head, stick a dried strand of spaghetti into bottom of a gumdrop. Push a breath mint into gumdrop for beak. Spread or pipe royal icing and adhere candy eyes. Set aside to dry.
  3. Push two gumdrops onto a dried strand of spaghetti, leaving room at bottom to adhere to base to make feathers. Make 4 more sticks. Use large fruit slice as base, and stick head into center. Push feathers around in a circular shape.
  4. Tip - If your peacocks don’t stand up, use a toothpick in the back to prop up.
  5. Other ideas for fun ways to use these Gumdrop Peacocks: Set up the pieces on a small paper plate and use as a place card for a big family meal. Let the kids make them to keep them busy while you are getting the meal on the table. If using for a table craft, use a marshmallow instead of icing. Cut the marshmallows so that there are two sticky sides, the candy eyes adhere nicely.
