This is truly my favorite time of year. Not only the colors, but the food is fantastic!!! I came accross this recipe and thought it looked fun for a treat at Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy the whole experience of making these delightful treats. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
1 bag candy corn
1 package Double Stuffed Oreo Cookies
1 box regular size Whoppers
1 bag peanut butter cups ( I use Reese’s)
1 tube of black piping gel
1 can of white vanilla icing
Yellow food coloring
Red food coloring
2 plastic zip lock bags
Put your peanut butter cups in the fridge to cool. If you have cold hard chocolate to work with it makes it a lot easier.
Put some of the white vanilla icing into a bowl. This will be your orange. Mix red and yellow food coloring with the icing to create your desired orange. Then put that into a plastic bag and set it aside for later. Do the same for a thing of red.
First you will be creating the tail using 1 Oreo cookie and 6 candy corns. Gently, with one candy corn pull apart just one side of the Oreo. Be careful not to break the cookie. Put a good amount of icing in between the two sides. This will help the candy corn stay. Place 6 candy corn (white side down) in between the cookie. Use picture as a guide.
Take your white icing and squeeze a generous amount onto the top back of an Oreo cookie. Take the other Oreo and put the bottom into the icing to have it stand up. If it doesn’t stand, add more icing! Once you have it standing up put against something so it doesn’t fall until the icing is dry.
Remove your peanut butter cups from the fridge. Take your knife and cut off the very bottom so you have a flat surface. Put icing on the bottom of it the bigger flat. Bump it up against the bottom and back of your Oreo cookies. Use picture as a guide.
Next take your Whopper and squeeze more icing on it on one side. Place the whopper on top of the peanut butter cup to make your head.
Find a piece of Candy Corn that has a nice big white end. Using your sharp knife cut the color off leaving you with the white end. Place some icing on it and stick it on your whopper as the beak to your Oreo Turkey. Hold for a moment.
Put some frosting on the back of a candy corn and place it on the side of the peanut butter cup with the small end pointing up. Do this on each side for the wings. Make sure to hold for a moment to get them to stick!
Take your icing and place two white dots as eyes. Get your tube of black piping gel and place a black dot on each eye to make them come alive.
Using your bag of already created orange icing, cut a very small hole in the corner of the bag. Making small lines of icing, pipe the feet.
Using your bag of already created red icing, cut a very small hole in the corner of the bag. Pipe a strip under the nose for a gobble. It’s okay if it looks messy. Those things are silly looking anyways!
Repeat with the rest of your supplies and make a whole flock of turkey cookies!!
