Thanksgiving Turkey OREO Cookies Supplies:
- Cookie Candy Mold
- OREO Cookies (12 regular size)
- Mini OREO Cookies (12)
- Wilton Dark Cocoa Candy Melts (12 ounce bag)
- Wilton White Gel Tube
- Wilton Candy Eyeballs (24)
- M&M Candies – Plain (12 red, 6 orange, 6 yellow, 6 green, 6 blue)
- Wilton Orange Decorator Icing
To get started, you’ll melt the Wilton Dark Cocoa Candy Melts in a microwave. Add about 2 tablespoons of the melted candy melts into the bottom of each cookie mold.
NOTE: The cookie/candy mold pictured is the PERFECT size for making dipped or chocolate covered OREO’s. If you want to speed up your process, you may want to buy more than 1 of them since it only makes 5 at a time.
Next, lay a regular sized OREO cookie on top of the melted candy melts. You don’t need to press it in, just lay it centered in the mold on top of the melted mixture.
Top the OREO cookies with more of the melted candy melts until they are completely covered. Be sure to top each one with about the same amount of mixture (so that they are uniform size) and don’t exceed the top of the candy mold or you’ll end up with a mess. Place in the refrigerator for about an hour (or until firm).
With the remaining melted chocolate, dip the mini OREO cookies so that they are coated in chocolate. Place them plate or baking sheet that has been lined with wax or parchment paper. Place them into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until firm.
While your OREO’s are chilling, cut your M&M’s in half. Eat the ones that don’t cut perfectly. It’s a rule.
Using the white icing as a edible “glue”, apply some to the back of the chocolate-dipped Mini OREO Cookies and place it directly on top of each regular-sized, chocolate-dipped OREO cookie, centering the mini cookies in the middle for the turkey face.
Dab a small amount of white icing to the back of the candy eyes and place 2 eyes on each mini Oreo.
Dab a small amount of white icing to the back of 12 red M&M candy halves and place under the eyes (at an angle) for the turkey wattle. For the turkey feathers, each turkey will need half of a red, orange, yellow, green and blue M&M candy piece. Dab a small amount of white icing on the back (cut side) of each piece and place on the large OREO Cookie, above the face, evenly spaced apart.
Finally, with the orange decorator icing, pipe the turkey feet at the bottom of each cookie, by creating two lines that form the top part of a triangle. See how easy that was!
