A Fun Thanksgiving Treat

A friend of mine posted this on her Facebook page and I just had to give it a try.
 The picture is my creation. As you'll read later, my girls had some issues with theirs, but the cookies were still tasty. It was a pretty fun and quick treat to make. 
You'll need:
  • Oreo cookies (Double Stuff works best... I chose the non-chocolate version)
  • miniature peanut butter cups
  • candy corn
  • white frosting (the directions call for white gel icing, but it didn't hold the peanut butter cups in place, which is why pictures of the girls' creations are not on display)
Take an Oreo apart. This will be the base of your turkey. Stick another Oreo into the "base" cookie. (Remind your children to be gentle, as the frosting easily "cracks"). Use the icing to secure a peanut butter cup to the cookie. (This might work better if you set the head on the "base". It will still look like it's near the middle of the "body"). Insert candy corn, pointy piece down, into the filling of the Oreo "body." (This is another "gentle" task or your cookie will break, which happened to us). Use gel icing to make the eyes on the peanut butter cup. Break a piece of candy corn and use the pointy end for the beak. Use the icing/frosting to secure the beak on the peanut butter cup. Enjoy!

The person who gave me the idea said she can't find any candy corn, so she might try pretzel sticks for the feathers. Wish I had thought of that BEFORE I sugared up my kids!

We just did this! So what if it's after Thanksgiving. ;) We decided to head outside to run off the sugar.

I, of course, picked the coldest day of the week to make them, so we just ran around inside instead when we were done eating them.
