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.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Oatmeal Cream Pies
Oreos (or Kiddos- if you buy the store brand!)
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!
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!
