Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I love to make special treats for each holiday. For Halloween I made the chocolate bark and for Thanksgiving I've made the cutest candy turkey's you've ever seen. I first came across these little treats last Thanksgiving. My best friend since the 9th grade, Kim, and her lovely Mom, Mrs. Booker, come up with the best treats EVER! If you're fortunate enough to have a slice of Mrs. Booker's coconut pound cake then I promise you'll die a happy person. :) One of my favorite things to make at Christmas is a Mrs. Booker speciality too, but you'll have to wait for that one. So take a look at these gobbler's!

As you can see from the picture, they are very easy to make! I made a batch last night for my co-workers. Obviously they were a big hit.

Oreo cookies
Malt balls
Mini M&M's (the orig. recipe called for red hots but I couldn't find them anywhere)
Candy corn
Chocolate icing

Twist apart the Oreos. Place a dollop of chocolate icing on the bottom of a malt ball and place it on the Oreo with icing. 

Spread a layer of chocolate icing on the second half of the Oreo and place three candy corns along the top. I placed a little icing along the bottom of the cookie to help it act as glue when placed behind the malt ball.

Place the Oreo, standing up, behind the malt ball. Be careful and do not push hard because the Oreo will snap in half!

Place a dollop of chocolate icing on your mini M&M and place it as the nose of the turkey. Now your turkey is ready to eat!

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.
