How To Make a Faux Turkey

So, my friend Gabriella showed me how to make Turkeys this week...and Russ emailed me the pics--here they are and I'll write the recipe also...They are so cool!

I went over to their house on Wednesday night and we made them. It didn't take that long, really, and it was a lot of fun.

One thing that is important is to get the Candy Corn before the stores sell out of it. A friend of mine said that now that Halloween is over it's harder to get the corn...but that liquor stores seem to still have the Candy Corn.

  • Rice Krispies Cereal
  • a stick of butter
  • mini-marshmellows
  • Candy Corn
  • Oreo Cookies
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Parchment Paper
1. Make Rice Krispy Treats using the cereal, butter and mini-marshmellows...but instead of spreading the melted rice krispy cereal in a pan, grease up your hands (with butter or margarine) and turn them into little balls. These balls will be the body of your turkey.

2. Separate the Oreo Cookies (gently and carefully so they don't break) and scrape off the white frosting. You will have tons of cookie halves.

3. Spread the chocolate frosting on a cookie half. Put the Rice Krispy Ball on it. Spread the chocolate frosting on another cookie half and put that behind the Rice Krispy Ball (so that it is sitting on 2 cookie halves, at a 90 degree angle).

4. Put three candy corns directly on the Oreo Cookie half that is behind the Rice Krispy ball, so that it looks like a tail. Press the candy corn into the frosting.

5. Put frosting on one candy corn and press it onto the front of the Rice Krispy ball, so that it looks like a little Turkey Beak.

6. Put the Turkeys in the fridge, on parchmant paper so that the frosting will set.

Voila! Mini-turkeys for Thanksgiving. It looks so very Martha-Stewarty and as if you spent a lot of time and effort on it...but it's easy!
