I saw this pic on facebook and knew that my kiddies would LOVE making these babies. And how cute are they to serve on Thanksgiving? To have a tray of these out on the dessert table? Or use them for name tag holders and the kids can write their own names????
Last year we did Pine Cone turkeys. They looked great and provided great roughage, but hard to chew.
These will no doubt be easier!
Double Stuf Oreos
Reeses Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures
Candy corn (I grabbed mine half-price yesterday at Wal-Mart)
Malted Milk balls (Whoppers)
Frosting for glue (simple recipe follows!!!)
Remove top from one Oreo. "Glue" candy corns into place with a smidge of frosting. I use a frosting bag with a small round tip, but you can dot with a sharp, pointy knife, too)
FROSTING: Pour a couple of cups of powdered sugar into bowl. Add only enough water to make thick paste. You want thick, glue-like consistency, not sugar-cookie soft. Okay? It hardens as it dries.
Replace cookie top with smidge of frosting to 'glue' in place.
Glue that cookie (the one with candy corn feathers) to a cookie flat on the table. Leave to dry, propped against a wall or something so it stands up until the frosting dries enough to make it secure.
Flatten (I slice a thin piece off and eat it. Yes. I'm am that willing to take one for the team!!!) the wider edge of the peanut butter cup, add a dot or two of frosting, and glue it to the upright cookie. This is the belly. (Ho ho ho!!!)
Glue a Whopper above the peanut butter cup. This is the head.
Now dot two eyes onto the Whopper. And a tiny beak.
You can add two candy corn "wings" by gluing them slanty-upside-down alongside the peanut butter cup. And two candy corn "tips" make great feet.
Oreo Turkeys. How stinkin' cute is that?
