Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.
Be a nut and putter your bumpkins. Have your own pumpkin patch right in your kitchen. After reading Melanie's helpful review, I thought it best to emphasize that you should add sugar to the dough until it is very stiff and leave it at that.
That's right folks, the Jimmy Buffett fan in me is sharing a "Buffett-inspired" recipe to get into the "swing of things" and gear up for tailgating season. Also lots of fun for kids' snacks or barbecues. I saw this in a little shop in Estes Park, CO and tried out some things to make a "copy" when I got home.
If you love caramel candies, this recipe will be like heaven to you! It is soft and wonderful. I use it to make homemade turtles candy, but you can use it to make anything you want. It is EXCELLENT!!
Note: I like to use a metal spatula to stir with so it helps keep it from burning.
The beautiful Anna, a barmaid at work, brought these in to share, and everyone demanded the recipe. We call the chocolate covered malt balls Maltesers, but the 'zaar computer didn't know that name. A tin about 10 X 8 inches that you would use to bake a bar or slice is perfect for this. I have found a 9X9 inch cake pan works OK too.
A fun snack to make and eat! This is a great recipe to get the kids to help you with. You can speed up the cooling time by putting the pan into the fridge for about 5 minutes. (Cooking time is cooling time)
