Ah, the holidays. A time to hang with family and friends, to eat lots of food, and most importantly, to have fun! This recipe for Thanksgiving Oreo Turkeys brings the party as the end result is not only adorable, but these are so easy to put together that the whole family can help.
All you need are some fudge-covered Oreos and pretzels, some candy, and chocolate "glue" (made from melted chocolate chips). You'll be delighted at how much these look like real little turkeys!
- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 12 fudge-covered Oreo cookies
- 36 chocolate-covered pretzels
- 24 candy eyeballs
- 12 pieces candy corn
Melt chocolate chips and vegetable oil about 30 seconds in a small microwave-safe bowl. Remove and stir. Continue cooking in 30-second increments until chips are melted.
Assemble cookies using chocolate like glue. Spread on back of Oreo and attach 3 pretzels in a fan pattern to look like feathers.
Dip backs of eyeballs and candy corn in chocolate and stick to the front of the "turkey" to make a face.
Place finished turkeys on a plate and cool in refrigerator 1 hour to allow chocolate to set.
