NUTTER BUTTER TURKEYS

READY IN:

45 mins

SERVES:

8

YIELD:

8 turkeys

UNITS:

US

INGREDIENTS Nutrition

  • Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
  • Oreo Double Stuff cookies
  • ounces candy corn
  • 16 M&M’s
  • small red jelly beans
  • 1cup white frosting
  • black decorating gel (in a tube)
  • white decorating icing (in a tube)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Create the tail feathers: Push 7 candy corns into the sides of the double-stuff oreos.
  2. Add the turkey body. Add frosting to a plastic bag. Snip a small piece from the corner. Pipe or spoon a dab of white frosting onto the center of the Oreo. Press a Nutter Butter cookie on top of the Oreo cookie. I had some leftover melted peanut butter chips and used that instead of frosting in this step.
  3. Add the face: Cut 8 candy corns in half for the noses. Pipe or dab a fat “T” onto the upper area of the Nutter Butter cookie. Press two M&M eyes into the frosting. Next add the candy corn nose, then add a red jelly bean (lengthwise) below the nose.
  4. Eye detail: (Option 1) Using a tube of black decorating gel, pipe a dot on each eye. You can then follow up with a tiny dot of white icing if you want extra detail, using a toothpick. (Option 2) Switch the colors and pipe a dot of white frosting onto the brown eyes, then add a tiny dot of black gel with a toothpick.
