The Best Oreo Turkeys

For the past few Thanksgivings my mother-in-law brought these adorable Oreo Turkeys, but this summer she passed away and we all wanted to continue the tradition. Last night I got online to look for a recipe since I had never taken a picture or asked for the directions. Nothing looked quite right.

Today the girls and I put our heads together and remembered...

Grandma Weese's Oreo Turkeys


Oreos with chocolate cream
Hershey's Kisses
Red Hots
Candy Corn
chocolate icing (we just bought a can)

Cover the top of an Oreo with chocolate icing. Place the Kiss near one edge and arrange the candy corn for feathers. Place a dab of icing on the point of the Kiss and add a Red Hot. Too cute!

  Happy Thanksgiving!

How wonderful to continue on with this tradition! I think we will have to do these for Christmas, as we've missed doing them today.

Happy Thanksgiving, Jena, to you and your family.
