Cute Turkey Snack for Kids

Last year I made these Cute Turkey Snack for Kids. Then we put one at everyone’s spot at the table for Thanksgiving. There were a huge hit and so cute that I thought I’d share them with you.

start with 2 oreo type cookies

You will need 2 Oreos per Turkey. Break off the top cookie from an edge of one of the Oreos. This leaves the icing to “glue” the other Oreo on top. Press the second Oreo cookie perpindicular into the notch you created. They should stay together now as long as you are reasonably gentle with them.

add in candy corn feathers

Press about 6 candy corn around the perpendicular Oreo to make Turkey feathers. Note: I used double stuffed Oreos to give there more room to stick in the candy corn feathers.

here's our flock of Oreo Turkeys

I made all that I was going to make, using up one package of double stuffed Oreos.

Now add the chocolate turkey body

Next, we made the rest of the turkey using a whopper, mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup, red icing, light bulb sprinkle, white stick looking sprinkle, and a toothpick.

  1. Start out by making the feet from red icing (you can buy it premade in the baking isle all ready to pipe) leaving a little pile of red towards the back where the cookies meet.
  2. Now using a sharp knife cut an edge in the peanut butter cup so it lies flat. Place in the red icing to “glue” it.
  3. Using a toothpick make 3 indentations. Put a white sprinkle in two for the eyes (I pressed which turned the sprinkle to powder and left if flat) and a large bulb sprinkle in one for the beak.
  4. Now you will need to break the toothpick in half. Then stick on end in the whopper so you have the turkey head on a stick. Press the other end of the toothpick into the top of the Reece’s peanut butter cup.

Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea - cute for kids!
