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.
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.
