Turkey Cookies

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to share one more super easy recipe that you can do, or rather, the kids can do! These turkey cookies require minimal “from scratch” and are absolutely so adorable. The kids think that they are so cute but without a doubt they devour these scrumptious turkey cookies in mere moments, or so it seems!

Since my kids always love anything homemade, I thought they would get a kick out of semi-homemade this year. And I was right! These are super big hit and I think that you and your family will love how easy they are to make and how seriously yummy they are too. And hey, don’t worry if they don’t turn out exactly the same, no two turkeys are alike anyway – just enjoy yourselves and Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

 

Ingredients

  • Peanut butter filled chocolate cookies
  • White Chocolate discs or bark
  • Candy eyes
  • Red hot candies
  • Orange sweet tart hearts
  • Food coloring

 

ingredients

 

Directions

Set aside a little bit of the white chocolate discs. (These will be melted later to adhere the feathers to the back of cookie). Place the rest of the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted. Make sure to stir the chocolate each time.

Divide white chocolate equally into 4 bowls.

Add food coloring until desired color is achieved.

 

in-process-1

 

Add each chocolate color to its own sandwich size baggie. Make sure to spoon the chocolate to one corner.

 

in-process-2

 

Snip (just a little bit) the very corner of the baggie to create a piping bag.

Take a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. Then take your first chocolate bag and pipe out a feather design (about 2 inches tall).

 

in-process-3

 

Continue piping all 4 colors until you have piped enough for the number of cookies you are making. (Pipe extra because some will break)

Let those harden (few minutes) In the mean time you can start putting on the eyes, beak, and wattle. Attach these using leftover chocolate from the piping bags. Pipe a little bit on the back of each eye, nose, and wattle. Let those harden (I put mine in the freezer to make it quicker but you can also let them harden at room temperature).

 

in-process-4

 

Once everything is hardened flip the cookie over.

Take the white chocolate that you held back and melt in the microwave. Spread on the top half of the cookie.

 

in-process-6

 

Take your feathers (very carefully) one at a time and in a fan motion stick them on the white chocolate. Leave them facedown until hardened. Do not rush this step, if you turn it over to quickly the feathers will fall off. Make sure the chocolate “glue” is completely hardened.

 

in-process-7

 

All Done! Now is the time to enjoy them with your kiddos and make the best memories during this season of Thanksgiving!

In His Grace,
