When it comes to Thanksgiving, I love getting my kids involved.
I’m always looking for something fun or a little bit out of the ordinary.
Which is why I love these candy corn turkey cookies.
Personally I found it tough not to snack on the candy corn while making these fun items.
A couple of years ago I was responsible for the kids’ activity in my child’s elementary classroom.
And guess what!
This project was an absolute hit with the kids.
And why wouldn’t it be?
Cute. Fun to put together.
And the best part?
You can to eat it!
And even better, when you’re done, let the kids come up with new creations as well.
You can even display them for Thanksgiving and then chow down on them after.
Easy Candy Corn Turkey Cookies
Materials for candy corn turkey cookies:
- Double-Stuf Oreos
- White frosting
- Pretzel sticks
- Candy eyes
- Candy corn
Grab an Oreo.
Break a pretzel stick in half and carefully push the sticks inside the cookie to form the legs.
Do the same with 5 candy corns up top to form the feathers.
Use 3 small dollops of icing on the top of the cookie and add the candy eyes and a candy corn for a nose.
Note: If you don’t have candy eyes, do a dollop of white frosting with a black icing dot in the middle.
