Visiting friends or family at Thanksgiving is the smartest way to deal with the holiday because you’re letting someone else go through the hassle of making a turkey. But the folks at Vat19 have an even better idea: make a 20-pound gummy turkey as part of an epic Thanksgiving candy spread.

Everything in this magnificent feast is made of candy, or cookies, or anything with enough sugar to ensure you don’t feel like taking that traditional post-Thanksgiving nap. You’ll instead want to run a marathon, or spend the rest of your day brushing your teeth before they rot out of your head.
