  • 14 cup butter or 14 cup margarine
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 28 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 12 cups chocolate frosting
  • 1 (12 1/2 ounce) package candy corn


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add marshmallows; stir over low heat until melted. Stir in cereal. Cool for 10 minutes. With buttered hands, form cereal mixture into 1-1/2-in. balls. Twist apart sandwich cookies; spread frosting on the inside of cookies.
  2. Place 28 cookie halves under cereal balls to form the base for each turkey. Place three pieces of candy corn in a fan pattern on remaining cookie halves; press each half onto a cereal ball to form the tail. Attach remaining candy corn with frosting to form turkey's head.
