These fun and adorable treats are perfect for building relationships with the small people in your life. Watch smiles form and grow as you build your turkeys with your children, siblings, nieces & nephews, or little friends. And besides, who doesn’t like to have miniature turkeys around for the week of Thanksgiving?
You will need:
Oreo cookies – 1 per turkey
Large marshmallows – 1/2 per turkey
Candy Corn – five per turkey, plus a few extra
Small amount of frosting
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
Mix all ingredients to make frosting.
Assemble your birds:
Spread a little frosting onto a cookie.
Press half of a marshmallow (cut around the middle “east/west” fashion) onto the cookie, NOT centered.
Place 5 candy corn evenly spaced above the marshmallow. These are the feathers that make your gobbler’s fan.
Break a tiny piece from one of the extra candy corn, and stick it to the marshmallow with a teeny bit of frosting. This is the gobbler’s beard.
Your bird is complete!
Adorable. Such a cute idea! Happy Thanksgiving to your family.
