These are so easy to make and all ages find them fun and adorable. I suggest making them the day before you need them to give the frosting time to set.

How to Make Gobble Gobble Turkey Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP:
    Open both packages of cookies and candy corn. Unwrap 24 mini peanut butter cups.
    Place chocolate frosting in a decorating bag with small tip, or in quart size ziplock bag with small corner cut.
    Lay out on large serving tray 5 chocolate chip cookies at a time.
    (Work in sets of 5 for easier handling)
  2. CONSTRUCTION:
    Squeeze a dollop of frosting onto each of the 5 cookies near the edge. Add a dollop of frosting to 5 peanut butter cups on the top, or largest side. With one hand take a fudge striped cookie with stripes going vertical (upright, so that they appear to be the turkey feathers) and place into dollop on chocolate chip cookie, while at the same time with the other hand placing the peanut butter cup flat against the striped cookie so that it touches both cookies. (This is the turkeys body) With a toothpick or very small decorating tip place 2 chocolate dots by the largest part of candy corn to resemble eyes.
    Place a small amount of frosting on the other side of the candy corn near the largest part and gently place on top of peanut butter cup to resemble the beak and face. Squeeze out two chocolate legs to complete turkey.

    REPEAT PROCESS UNTIL ALL COOKIES AND CANDIES ARE USED!!

    **DO NOT COVER FOR AT LEAST 5 HOURS AND LET AIR DRY TO ALLOW FROSTING TO SET AND HOLD COOKIE PIECES TOGETHER. AFTER ABOUT 5 HOURS LIGHTLY COVER WITH SARAN WRAP TO AVOID DUST AND LET SIT OVER NIGHT TO INSURE FIRMNESS**
  3. AWESOME FOR PARTIES:
    Your serving tray should look similar to this when completed.
