Sweet 16th! Turkey Cookies

Hello friends!  This month's sweet 16th is a cookie that is fun for the whole family to help make.  This has been a Thanksgiving time cookie tradition in my family since I was a little girl and now I'm thrilled to be making them with my son.

Here's my would be helper:

he was going to be helpful until he realized he could just eat the ingredients by themselves...




Speaking of which, here's what you need:

candy corn, caramel, chocolate kiss (or chocolate stars, I couldn't find any this year) and a striped cookie.


The first step is to unwrap a handful of caramels and then microwave them for 10-15 seconds until they are soft.


Smush the caramel into a vague turkey body shape and press it onto the chocolate kiss.





Next press the back of the caramel onto the cookie:





Finally, press the candy corn in for the beak. (I recommend laying the cookie down flat for this step)

And voila!  You can build yourself a whole flock of turkeys!



Gobble gobble gobble!


Happy holidays!
