A Little Thankful Treat

This picture of turkeys was going around Facebook for a while, and my mom thought that I should do it.  
So here's a go:

I whipped up some butter cream frosting to put in the top of the Double Stuff Oreos to help hold the candy corn more securely.  Amazingly enough I was able to ignore any OCD tendencies and didn't bother lining up the word Oreo correctly with the candy corn.  I mean it was going to get covered up anyway.

Now, I used generic peanut butter cups and malt balls, which I think are actually bigger than the name brand.  You'll see what I mean in a bit.  But definitely get the Double Stuff Oreos - you need the extra cream!

And here's my finished product:

See, the bigger candy pieces didn't leave room for me to make the cute little icing legs/feet.  But, you know, I don't think the kids who will get to eat them will really care.  I'm sure they'd really prefer the larger candy.

And all my little turkeys ready for school in the morning!


  1. So cute! I'm now feeling "guilty" about the store-bought goodies I'm sending to Brad's school. . . :)

    1. Don't you dare feel guilty, SuperMama. I only had to buy one package of Oreos, and I could get the candy from dispensers at a local grocery store, AND there are only 7 kids (counting Isaiah) in this class. If I had to do more than that, I wouldn't have done this!
      Besides, there's no way I can write like you!


If you leave a comment, inquiring about a project idea, I should get an email; but you can also email me directly: cristymakesandbakes (at) gmail (dot) com.
Have a grand day!
