Turkey Time...

Okay... in preparation for the big Thanksgiving day, I thought I would post a really cute idea people could use to take to the dinner. These will definitely impress family and friends!

*We actually have a friend (Andy) staying with us right now for work. His wife Sharon (left back in Colorado) put together a fun little package of Turkey cookies for us. She is so so nice. My kids loved them as much as I did. So, I asked for permission to post the idea (I think she got the idea from a friend, so not sure where it came from originally).  But the credit and the actual cookie goes to Sharon. Thanks Sharon!*

What you'll need:

  • Keebler fudge stripe cookies (for the feathers)
  • Chocolate cherry cordial (for the body)
  • candy corn (for the face)
  • Hershey kiss (for the feet)


Super easy... just melt the chocolate with a candle or a lighter on the candy where you need it to stick to the next piece. Don't need to melt too much, just enough to use the melted chocolate like glue. 

First you'll melt the bottom of the cherry cordial and stick it to the center of the fudge stripe. Then melt the tip of the cherry cordial a little to stick the candy corn on for the face. Then melt the top of the hershey kiss to stick to the bottom of the cordial for the feet.

Thats it! Hope you enjoy the idea! Happy Thanksgiving!
