Halloween! Love it or hate – it comes with lots of candy. My solution – make Halloween candy work for Thanksgiving. I will keep making simple Thanksgiving treats until I run out of Halloween candies, so if you can relate, get creative with me and today we are making –
You will need:
- Oreo type Cookies – I bought a cheaper version at Walmart and it breaks very easy, but with certain skills you can avoid spending an extra dollar and still get the same adorable result
- Frosting – You can either buy a can of frosting or you can make it (you will need confectionery sugar, unsalted butter, and some milk)
- Head – Whoppers candy would make a perfect head, but feel free to improvise
- Feathers – Candy corn is the best solution, but you probably can experiment with with string type candy as well
If you refuse to spend extra money on a can of Whipped Cream, just mix a cup of confectioners’ sugar and 1/8 cup of softened, unsalted butter (stir in a bit of milk, if needed). The result will be practically the same.
Assembling a Turkey
I tried using a half of Oreo for each body, but if you find that your cookies break easy, just use the double. The tail is a full cookie with the corn candy feathers in-between.
Put the Whopper head in the middle of icing (it will also help to hold the tail in place) and use icing and candy corn tips to complete the turkey.
Just try not to get carried away – otherwise you (like me) will have a gang of Oreo turkeys sitting on your kitchen.
