One thing I plan to do this year with the kids, is make some edible Turkey's out of cookies and candy. They're super adorable, and the kids will love them! We've never tried them before, but they look super easy to make.
What you will need:
- Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, or Oreo style sandwich cookies
- Candy Corn
- Chocolate frosting
- Hershey’s Whoppers
- Mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
- White tubed frosting
Next, take the frosting, peanut butter cup, and whopper, and let's make a body. Unwrap the peanut butter cup (actually unwrap two- one to use, one to eat), and turn it on it's side. Smear a bit of frosting onto the top, and press the whopper into it.
From there, you will want to use the white frosting to create two eyes, and a small mouth on the milk ball- you'll want the smaller flat side of the peanut butter cup facing outward.
From there, cover the larger flat side of the PB Cup with more frosting, and press it onto the cookie, towards the bottom away from the tail fan. Use a second cookie to lay flat, and use frosting to secure the bird to the bottom cookie, so it has a 'stand'.
You can play around with other items- some people break the tip of a candy corn off, and use it for a beak on the whopper for the turkey.
For the next treat, you will want:
- Round, baked sugar cookies
- Chocolate or Vanilla Frosting
- M&M Mini's
- Orange tubed frosting
Using more frosting, secure 2 M&M Mini's in the middle to use as eyes.
With the orange tubed frosting, use the small round piping head, and pipe on two feet, and you have adorable Turkey sugar cookies for Thanksgiving!
