Oreo Turkeys


Halloween has come and gone, but the candy still lingers.  These turkeys are our favorite Thanksgiving treat and a great way to use up all that candy corn!


Did I mention that Arielle won the Candy Corn Estimating contest?
Way to go, honey!


STEP #1

  • Do everything in assembly line fashion.
  • Lay out all the Oreos (I use double stuffed) on a Silpat mat or parchment paper.
  • Melt about 8 ounces of chocolate in a Gallon sized Ziploc bag.
  • Snip the corner 1/4" or less.  This bag will be used for piping chocolate "glue."


STEP #2

  • Put a dime-sized dot of chocolate on the lower center part of the Oreo.
  • Working quickly, place one Whopper on the chocolate spot of "Glue."


STEP #3
  • Working 3 or 4 Oreos at a time, pipe on chocolate to the remaining top portion of the Oreo.
  • Add five Candy Corn "feathers".  The largest Candy Corn should be in the center.



STEP #4

  • Put a dot of chocolate on top of each Whopper.
  • Attach a Candy Corn head.
  • Using "Writing Icing" (Not Gel), dot two blue eyes and a red "wattle"  (Or is it the Snood?) to the head and let dry.
Enjoy!  These are actually quite tasty.  They have become a Thanksgiving tradition at our house and grace our Thanksgiving table right along with the pumpkin pie!

  1. Go Arielle! It's always fun to win- what was the prize? Reminds me of the time (though this isn't exactly the same) when Zack was pulled out the 1 gold Hershey's Kiss out of a bag of 100 kisses (the others were silver) and his third grade teacher said he was the first to ever have done that. They were learning percentages or probability.

    These look like a mighty fun dessert treat- I might have to try it with our family gathering (we're going down to MD this year.) Kids will have loads of fun decorating. Which means I better store away that dish of candy corn in the living room right now...
