In this final month of Secret Recipe Club reveals, I’m jumping in to help group A with their reveal.
I was assigned Erin’s blog, Making Memories with Your Kids.
Erin is a single mom of two and full time middle school counselor. She loves crafting and baking and including her children in her passions!
Erin has tons of wonderful kid-friendly recipes on her blog and many fun little crafty foods to make for or with the kids. Since it’s so close to Thanksgiving, I made her Turkey Cookies!
These little cookies use a bunch of cookies and candies that I typically have on hand this time of year (thank you Halloween buckets!) I really wish I would’ve made these *with* the kids (I made them while they were at school to test them out, and then realized that I only had 2 peanut butter cups – oops).
My boys absolutely adored these little turkeys! Dude ate his right after school. Spud was about to eat his, but soon declared it too cute to eat. He named it Cute Turkey and it now lives on the table next to his plate. He even had to Facetime his Nana to show her his cute turkey. I suspect it may travel with us at Thanksgiving!
Thank you, Erin for a too-adorable to eat little treat!
Recipe from Making Memories with Your Kids
Oreos (regular or pumpkin spice)
Mini peanut butter cups
Melted chocolate, candy melts, or royal icing (I used royal icing)
Place a blob of royal icing (or melted chocolate) near the bottom of 1 Oreo. Place a peanut butter cup, larger end down on the icing. Place another blob of icing just above and slightly on the peanut butter cup. Place a whopper on the icing. Allow the icing to harden slightly, so that the candies won’t move once the cookie is turned upright.
Place a large blob of icing on a second Oreo. Place the first Oreo onto the second Oreo, near the back, with the peanut buttercup near the center.
Cut the yellow end off 2 candy corns. Place them on the bottom as feet. Place more icing on the whopper. Use one of the remaining candy corn tips as a beak and two candy eyes for the eyes. Use icing to glue on two whole candy corns as wings.
For the tail feathers, cut the tips off 5 candy corns. Add icing and carefully wedge the candy corns into the Oreo.
Allow the whole turkey to dry and enjoy. Or keep it as a pet. Either one.
