Happy Thanksgiving!

A couple of weeks ago, my mother sent me this link from Our Best Bites and asked me if I would think about trying to make little Thanksgiving turkeys as our Thanksgiving dinner place cards. Now, we have about thirty people in our family in all- including aunts, uncles, cousins, and their children, etc- so I knew it would be no easy feat. But it was fun, and cute, and although you can't use the idea for another year, you'll have a cute idea for next year!

  • Reese's Peanut Butter cups
  • Whoppers
  • Candy Corn
  • Black sprinkles
  • Package of Oreos (I went through three packages because the cookies kept breaking)
  • Frosting (chocolate is best because it's less conspicuous. You will also need yellow frosting though for the eyes)

  1. Push 4-5 candy corns into the Oreo so it looks like tail feathers. Do this gently! If you have a small enough funnel for your frosting, if you put some between the two cookies and then push the candy corn in, it'll help it stick better.
  2. Using some frosting, "glue" the two cookies together. It will be best if you put them against a wall upright so they can dry/harden so that they'll stick together.
  3. Using a knife, cut a section of the peanut butter cup so it'll be flat against the Oreos. Using the frosting, glue it to the cookies.
  4. Glue to the whopper to the top of the Reese's and to the Oreo cookies.
  5. At this point, you will need a candy corn for each turkey. Using a knife, cut the white part off of the candy corn. You will use this shortly.
  6. It's easy if you pipe this on- I have a variety of cake decorating supplies, so it was easier for me- but you can use a toothpick to put some yellow frosting on for the eyes and then a bit to attach the beak with.
  7. Using the smallest, roundest black sprinkles, gently put the eyes on. Also, stick the beak on so it's straight. Let dry!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
