Weekend Cooking: Oreo Turkey Cookies

hosted by Beth Fish Reads

My discovery of this meme was completely by happy accident. While visiting Alex over at The Children's War, I happened upon her Victory through Cranberries post that she wrote for Weekend Cooking.

Hubby and I were visiting with family earlier this week, and his cousin had made these cute Oreo Turkey Cookies for Thanksgiving. I immediately fell in love with their cuteness and just had to share them with you guys so I had to take pics of them with my phone. Please forgive me for the quality of the photos. A photographer I'm not.

The ingredients are simple, and it would be a fun project for the kids to help with.

You'll need:

Candy Corn
Oreo cookies (double stuffed)
Whoppers (malted milk balls)
mini peanut butter cups
Chocolate frosting (either in a pre-made tube or homemade) - this will be the "glue"
pre-filled little tubes of yellow and red icing for the details

 The tail first - grab an Oreo, squirt a bit of the frosting in there to hold your candy corn "feathers."

Grab another Oreo (for the base) and put a dab of "glue" to hold the tail on. Lean it against something while it dries.

Unwrap your peanut butter cups and slice off a sliver so it can lie flat against "tail Oreo." Glue it to your Oreos.

Glue your Whopper head and just the white tip of a candy corn for the beak.

Add your fancy details with frosting tubes.

Have a great weekend,
Angela

  2. Those are absolutely adorable! And what a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy. :D

    I'm glad I found you! I went out to your profile from the comment you left, but your profile didn't link out to your blog, and it took me a few minutes to figure out I could probably find you through Weekend Cooking. *facepalm* So I'm here now, and will be subscribing through Google Reader! :)

    1. You got to meet Giada? How cool is that? I'm going to try your Maple-Glazed Acorn squash recipe very soon. I am definitely blessed this year in the squash department.

  12. These are over the top cute. I am bookmarking so that I can make these when I have some little ones over for a visit. I love recipes with not cooking for things like that.

    1. Thanks so much! Little ones would love to make these. The biggest problem would be keeping them from eating all of the supplies :)
