Sweet Turkeys Cookies

Sweet Turkeys


Makes 16 cookies


Prep time: 20 minutes


8 Nabisco® Pinwheel cookies, or similar, for the body


8 Keebler® Fudge Stripe cookies, or similar, for the tail feathers


½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (for adhering pieces together and to make the eyes)


16 pieces of candy corn for the face


Chocolate sprinkles, optional


Sweet Turkeys Cookies-2

1. Cut cookies in half with a knife and set aside.


2. Melt the chocolate chips gently in a microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water on the stove.


3. Dip the back of a teaspoon into the melted chocolate.


4. Use the melted chocolate like glue and apply to both cut ends of the half pinwheel.


5. Apply half of a striped cookie to the pinwheel on the striped side with the curve facing up.


6. Apply melted chocolate to a piece of candy corn and attach it to the top portion of the pinwheel cookie, point downward (like a beak).


7. With a toothpick, apply 2 chocolate dots on the candy corn for eyes. Add a chocolate sprinkle to each dot for a 3-D effect, if desired.


8. Place the “turkeys” back to back for support on a dish or cookie sheet while the chocolate hardens.


For each bird, you’ll use ½ Nabisco® Pinwheel cookie or similar for the body, ½ Keebler®


Fudge Stripe cookie or similar for the feathers, and 1 candy corn for the face.
