Thanksgiving Turkeys (Cookies)

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Mom2Rose

These are not made with real turkey, LOL! My mom made these for me when I was a kid and now I am able to make these with my daughter. Gotta love those family recipes! This is a fun recipe too to have your kids help you with! If you don't want to use peanut butter cups, my mom used to use the Brach's chocolate covered mints (not flat ones) but the ones that were shaped like pb cups.

These turned out SO cute!! I made vanilla cupcakes with chocolate icing and did the turkey design on the cupcake. They were so easy that my 9 year old sister was able to decorate them. We brought them to my grandparent's house for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved them. Thanks for the excellent recipe!!
