How cute are these Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies? They’d be perfect on the table at Thanksgiving. To make them, you’ll need:
- Candy corn
- White Frosting
- Gumdrop or Dots for nose
- Wilton Candy Eyes
Step #1: Choose your candy for the turkey’s nose, wattle, and feet. Use a serrated knife to “saw” the M&Ms in half. I used the red ones as the turkey wattle and the brown ones as the turkey feet. Really, you could use similar candy for any of these parts. It’s a fun way to use up any leftover Halloween candy (if there is any). Yes, some will break. You may have to eat your mistakes. I have really been having fun making seasonal treats from the Wilton Candy Eyes. I also used them to make Spider Cupcakes and Elmo Cupcakes. You can buy them at craft stores that carry cake decorating supplies, or on Amazon.com.
Step #2: Break the Oreos in half and use the part with the most white frosting on it as the base to hold the turkey upright. Add additional white frosting on top to provide extra support.
Step #3: Secure the candy corn to the back of one half of an Oreo as turkey feathers.
Step #4: Add frosting to the back of the Nutter Butter cookie where the turkey feathers will go. Press together.
