Oreo Turkey Cookies are super cute and a super easy Thanksgiving dessert that kids can make. All you need are cookies, candy corn, candy eyes and chocolate!
If you're looking for cute Thanksgiving desserts for kids of all ages, check out these easy Oreo turkey cookies. They're super easy, and you can put the kids to work -- kind of like an edible Thanksgiving craft!
When it comes to Thanksgiving, the more desserts to choose from, the merrier! You have your traditional Thanksgiving desserts like pumpkin pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake, but it's always nice to have something fun, as well!
We used the chocolate creme Oreos because we are all serious chocolate lovers, but you can use any flavor. Just don't use the super thin ones, because the candy corn won't fit.
How to Make Turkey Cookies with Oreos
For these easy turkey cookies, you'll need:
- Oreo sandwich cookies, or any brand of sandwich cookie
- Chocolate chips
- Candy corn
- Candy eyeballs
First, press the pointed side of the candy corn into the creme filling. You don't need to take the cookie apart -- just gently press them into the middle.
Then, add little dots of melted chocolate where you want the eyes and beak. You can use a toothpick for this or whatever is easiest for you.
I actually found it was easier put the chocolate directly onto the cookie instead of on the eyeballs and candy corn. My kids got way more chocolate on their hands the other way, but you can do what works for you!
After you press the eyes and beak onto the cookie, you're done! Now, just repeat the process until you have as many turkey cookies as you need!
Aren't these little turkeys cute?! We had a lot of fun making these Oreo turkeys-- even the grumpy teens liked them!
