Oreo Turkey Tutorial

I LOVE these cute turkeys!  I saw them a few years back online and knew immediately that I needed to make them.  I have made these a few times in the past years and just  made a batch for our fall party.  They were a hit and so I thought I would do a post on them.  After a few tries I have finally figured out the easiest way to put them together.  I am sure there are several variations out there, but this is how I make mine in case you want to give it a go!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 tube of chocolate cookie icing that squirts through a small tip
  •  I tube of orange or yellow decorative icing with a small tip to apply
  • Double stuffed Oreo cookies(must be double stuffed)
  • 1 bag of candy corn
  • 1 box of whoppers
  • 1 bag of mini chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups.

OK SO HERE IS MY BIG TIP: Make sure you trim your Oreo body with one flat side so it sits nice a flush to the bottom Oreo.  Also make sure you trim your Reese’s cup the same way.  This will fit the turkey together nice a tight.

  • Squirt some icing on the top half of the creme for extra “glue” for the candy corn feathers.

    Insert five candy corn pieces, point side down into the filling of the Oreo to make your feathers.

    Put some icing on the flat side of your Oreo and then attach it to the whole Oreo on the back-end.

    After that attach your Reese’s cup the same way. Add some icing to the flat side and put it on with the small side facing out.

    Put 2 good size dollops of choc icing right next to one another on your whopper. One will glue the “head” to the back of the Oreo and the other on the bottom to glue it to the Reese’s cup.

    Add some icing to 2 candy corn wings

    Lay him down on his back to let the head dry in place for a few minutes and attach the “wings” on either side of the peanut butter cup facing the pointed end up.

    Once the head seems secure stand him up and add three dots of icing to the face. Press the 2 mini chocolate chips in for the eyes and the tip of a candy corn for the beak. You can use your orange icing to pipe on little legs and if you have red icing (i didn’t do this step, it was too late!) you can pipe on a little gobbler. and your done(well at least with one)!

    Here is my little guy all done. All I can say is “Strut Mr. Turkey that’s a fancy way to walk!”

    Here is my little turkey “army” as my husband said. 25 turkeys took about 1.5 hours from start to finish.

    Have fun makin’ your turkeys!
