Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays of the year. It’s full of family, fun, and of course, FOOD! So why not spend a little time with the little ones this year to create the perfect snacks and appetizers for your Thanksgiving celebration. These Oreo Turkeys for Thanksgiving Snacks, found over at Examiner.com, are the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving holiday table.
Oreos are about one of the yummiest cookies around, so when we find snacks that we can make with them, and are kid-friendly, how could we say no?! This is an easy snack and it’s a great way to get rid of all of that extra candy corn still sitting in the house from Halloween, along with those delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups you keep snacking on. We know you still have some!
Another great idea for these sweet treats? Create place cards with them for your Thanksgiving dinner table! Simple squeeze the place card into the middle of the Oreo, and voila! You have the most adorable (and edible) place cards around!
What you Need:
- Candy Corn
- Miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Candy Eyes
How to Make Them:
- Separate each Oreo into two pieces (not to lick, just to have the two separate cookie pieces! If you need some hep, use a knife)
- Add icing on the top of the Oreo’s icing and add the “feathers” of candy corn around the top of the cookie. Don’t forget to add two across the bottom to make the turkey’s “feet”! (TIP: Make sure you place the bottom “feet” at angles that will eventually hold up the Oreo turkey. Practice makes perfect!)
- Close the Oreo back up. Add more icing to help reattach it, if necessary
- Using icing, add the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with the widest part flat against the cookie.
- With more icing, attach eyes and a piece of candy corn to make your pretty little Turkey’s face!
That’s it! You’ve just created your Thanksgiving Turkey!
The kids are going to love helping out with this fun Thanksgiving project from the Examiner.com! Just be careful… you don’t want them to eat all of these cute snacks before Thanksgiving dinner is served! Enjoy the holiday with your family and all of us from A Parent Company wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
