There's a Nutter Butter marathon going on at my house this fall. The inspiration for this recipe was the Crafty Kitchen. It's a project that's geared toward preschool kids. So....I felt if a 5 year old could make these, I should be able to also! http://www.craftbuds.com/crafty-kitchen-turkey-cookies/
- 8 Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
- 8 Oreo Double Stuff cookies
- 4 ounces candy corn
- 16 M&M's
- 8 small red jelly beans
- 1⁄2 cup white frosting
- black decorating gel (in a tube)
- white decorating icing (in a tube)
- Create the tail feathers: Push 7 candy corns into the sides of the double-stuff oreos.
- Add the turkey body. Add frosting to a plastic bag. Snip a small piece from the corner. Pipe or spoon a dab of white frosting onto the center of the Oreo. Press a Nutter Butter cookie on top of the Oreo cookie. I had some leftover melted peanut butter chips and used that instead of frosting in this step.
- Add the face: Cut 8 candy corns in half for the noses. Pipe or dab a fat "T" onto the upper area of the Nutter Butter cookie. Press two M&M eyes into the frosting. Next add the candy corn nose, then add a red jelly bean (lengthwise) below the nose.
- Eye detail: (Option 1) Using a tube of black decorating gel, pipe a dot on each eye. You can then follow up with a tiny dot of white icing if you want extra detail, using a toothpick. (Option 2) Switch the colors and pipe a dot of white frosting onto the brown eyes, then add a tiny dot of black gel with a toothpick.
Super cute! Fun to make with kids! Accidentally got the small circular nutter butter cookies but it still worked!
