Turkey Cookies~Easy Thanksgiving Snacks
Looking for a treat for your child’s school class for Thanksgiving? Or maybe you just want to try something fun at home for a treat. These little turkeys are so easy and cute, you almost don’t want to eat them… almost.
What you will need:
Fruit roll up (yellow and red)
Chocolate candy coating
Candy eyes (check on the cake decorating aisle of your local Walmart or craft store)\
Begin by melting your chocolate in a dish that you can reach into to dip your pretzels and cookies. Have a handful of whole pretzels close. When your chocolate is melted, coat the pretzels well, using a fork to scoop them up. Before you put the pretzel on the wax paper to dry, give it a couple of bumps against the bowl to knock off extra chocolate back into your bowl. Lay your pretzels in groups of four like this:
Sorry about the awful picture, my kitchen lighting is terrible at night! While you let your pretzels begin to harden, dip your Oreo cookies one at a time in the chocolate. Make sure to knock the fork against the bowl a few times again to knock the extra chocolate off. Place the Oreo on top of your group of pretzels.
Before it hardens, place 2 candy eyes, a triangle cut from fruit roll up and a piece of red fruit roll up to resemble the waddle. Once the turkey hardens, these will be attached well. Candy corn would also make a super cute beak, but I couldn’t find any the day I went to the store. 🙁
Let them sit for a while to harden. They will be well stuck together. Put on a plate as an easy gift for a neighbor, add them to your Thanksgiving table, or just serve them to your family as a cute dessert! I guarantee everyone will love how adorable and creative these little turkeys are!
