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.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 24 Oreo Double Stuff cookies
  • 12 miniature peanut butter cups
  • 12 malted milk balls
  • 236.59 ml candy corn
  • 113.39 g chocolate frosting
  • 113.39 g white frosting
  • red food coloring

Directions

  1. Place one Oreo cookie as the base. Put one teaspoon of chocolate frosting on top.
  2. Place one small peanut butter cup on it's side so that the top and bottom are perpendicular to the base -- and stuck in the frosting. Place a teaspoon of chocolate frosting on the top(widest part) of the p-butter cup.
  3. For the second cookie. Stick some candy corn into the Oreo 'stuff' along one edge for the feathers -- pointy side down. They should fan out around the edge. If you have trouble doing this, you can help them stick with some white frosting.
  4. Place this second Oreo cookie (the tail) on it's edge and sticking to a dab of brown frosting on the back of the peanut butter cup.
  5. Place a dab of chocolate frosting on top of the peanut butter up (for the head). Place a malted milk ball on top for the head.
  6. Take a small amount of the white frosting in a separate dish. Mix in red food coloring.
  7. Use a toothpick with the white and red colors to place eyes, and wattle. You can pinch off the small pointy top of a candy corn and dip it in brown frosting for the beak.
  8. Your turkey is complete!
