How awsome! My grandkids had a wonderful time assembling these. They did a center piece which consisted of a tray of Cocoa Puffs to set the turkeys on display. It was so cute! They will remember this for years to come. Thanks for the recipe and ideas! Please post more.

These were a HIT! We got small 4" pie tins and turned them face down and built our turkeys on these so they were on a silver platform! We too, took the top layer cookie off so the base had the white filling exposed. From there we cemented the vertical Oreo on with the icing. One suggestion is to be sure you have the orange candy corn ahead of time. It was kind of hard to find after Halloween. We first used brown candy corn which was crumbly and fell apart easily. We finally located the orange and these worked fine. The brown ones that did work were a whole different look. We had fun mixing it up and had 4 varieties of turkeys. We made icing eyes and used Christmas candy corn to make the wattles and the beaks. I gave these out to friends and with a grin told them "We were making these turkeys last night and we thought about you!"
We will definitely make these again. They made a wonderful dessert table display!

Really cute Pam. I am not sure what we did wrong but gravity took over with all the candy decorations and we could not even get one that would stick together. My son and husband tried a pass at it then I thought they were just being men, so since I decorate cakes professionally thought it would be a snap, but I didn't have any luck. I wish I could get them to stick. I tried decorator frosting and spreadable cake frosting neither worked to hold the candies.

Found these to be EXTREMELY time consuming to make and not near as easy to make as inplied. Picture did not match instructions. Eyes and waddle difficult to create. Been working on these for 1 1/2 hrs and only have 6 done. Cute idea tho.

Very cute cookies! I bought candy "eyes" since I couldn't make them look good. I made these for my sister's kindergarten's Thanksgiving party, and I know they will love them. Thank you so much!

These are too adorable. I wish I had found this at Halloween so I could hoard some candy corn! I will be making these next year with my granddaughter for sure. Thanks for the creativity.

These have become a Thanksgiving tradition in our home. You need to remember to buy the candy corn in October though, I've never been able to find it after that.
