Edible TurkeySimple, but cute, this edible turkey craft is sure to please the turkey enthusiasts as we celebrate Thanksgiving.



  1. Take one Oreo cookie and open it up. Note: vanilla cream cookies may also be used if you prefer.

  2. Set the side with the cream center intact, cream side up on a plate.

  3. Affix another Oreo cookie to the top, back of the opened cookie by pressing it into the cream.

  4. Place a granola bite or whopper in front of the whole Oreo cookie to make the head.

  5. Place candy corn pieces sticking in the cream portion of the whole Oreo cookie to make the feathers.

  6. Cut a triangle out of a piece of candy corn to make a beak and place at an angle in front of the "head".

  7. Make a whole plate of these, but hide them or they will get gobbled up fast!

They do look great. I'm going to try this with my grandkids tomorrow (Thanksgiving Day!). There are 3 two years olds and 2 four year olds, so they will love this.

What a cute picture, Daina. It's a nice touch to send that with your comment.

Cookies and candy corn turkeys.This is such a fun project! Do it with your kids or by yourself. Great for the Thanksgiving table, or to make as a treat for your child's class.

Approximate Time: 15 minutes



  1. Spread icing/frosting over the surface of two chocolate chip cookies. Place six candy corn "feathers" around one of the cookies and then stick the end of this cookie into the icing spread on the second chocolate chip cookie so it stands up like turkey feathers.
  2. Place one bits-size Oreo onto the icing of the bottom cookie in front of the feathers. Spread a little icing on a second bite-size Oreo and stick it on top of the first, using the icing as glue. This is the turkey's body.
  3. Use icing to glue a chocolate candy ball head on top of the Oreos.
  4. Cut two white pieces off two candy corns for eyes and attach them to the head with a dab of icing.
  5. Cut the yellow part off one candy corn. Discard the yellow and use a dab of icing to attach the remaining section to the candy ball for the beak.

These edible Oreo cookie turkeys make a fun Thanksgiving craft idea for kids. You can even use them as place cards at the table for Thanksgiving dinner. Just write each guest's name in gel icing on the plate under his or her Oreo turkey.

Yeilds: 2 Oreo turkeys



  1. Take two Oreos apart. Place on a plate. These will be the foundation.
  2. Stick the other two Oreos into the icing of the Oreos on the plate, standing up on their sides. Make sure to leave room for the turkey's head.
  3. Place a mini peanut butter cup on its side in front of the standing Oreo for the turkey's head. You can secure it to the standing Oreo with some icing.
  4. Insert candy corn pieces, pointy side down, into the filling of the standing Oreo for the feathers.
  5. Use gel icing to make eyes.
  6. Break a piece of candy corn in half and use gel icing to glue the pointy part on under the eyes for the turkey's beak.
