Turkey Treats

After a full day of decorating this house for Christmas, followed by lots of clean up I decided to make a trip to Kroger. OH MY WORD. It is only Sunday at that place was packed. I vowed to myself that I would not go back until after Thanksgiving. Yikes.

I just needed a few things for the dessert that I am making for our faculty potluck on Tuesday, the required items to take to my mom's for Thanksgiving and the supplies for turkey treats for my class. I left the store in a reasonable time, spent less than $30.00 and remembered to bring and use my reusable bags. I was feeling good about the whole trip. It was not until I got home that I realized I forgot the chocolate chips! ugh. But I did make that vow and I was not about to break it. So I had to improvise and come up with a new plan for eyeballs. Eyeballs for what you ask? Well for TURKEY TREATS of course.
I made these with my 3rd graders last year and it was a hit, so of course we are going to do it again. But C and I had to make a batch to take to Mrs. Bonnie's house to share with his friends and we wanted to share with you in case you need a cute, EASY treat over the next few days.

Oatmeal Cream Pies
Oreos (or Kiddos- if you buy the store brand!)
Candy Corn
Chocolate Chips (darn it!)

Step 1: Unwrap oatmeal cream pies.

Step 2: Place candy corn white side down in between the layers of cream pie for feathers!

See below:

 Step 3: Place a small dot of frosting on the back of the Oreo and attach it to the cream pie for head.

Yes, C had to taste test one cookie. He had to make sure they were fresh for his friends!

C put this one frosting side up. Can you see that he was a little disappointed?
(We did use a little orange frosting we had left from a previous project to attach Oreos)

 Step 4: Place a three small dots of frosting on the cookie. One for beak, two for eyes.

Step 5: Place chocolate chips as eyes. (Or candy corn tips in our case!)

Step 6: Place candy corn yellow side down in chocolate dot for beak.

 Step 7: Enjoy!

I know- it is not much, but kids LOVE em'- trust me!
Have a GREAT week. I am pretty excited that it is a TWO DAY work week. yay!
