Demon Eyed Turkey Cookies

Were fun to make and messy to eat.  The front one is a baby turkey and the back one is the mama.

A former co-worker used to make turkey cookies out of Oreos, Vanilla Creme Drops and Candy Corn.  My son doesn't care for most of those ingredients so I switched it up a bit and came up with above.  We had a good laugh at how the cinnamon candies made the turkeys looks possessed, thus they have been nicknamed the Demon Eyed Turkey Cookies.

Makes 12 turkeys

Items used:
  • 1 pkg of 24 slice or break and bake cookies (I used Snickerdoodles) or pre-packaged cookies or 12 Oreos
  • 12 to 24  bite sized candies (I used Snickerz)
  • 1 can of frosting (I used Vanilla)
  • 24 Red Hots Candies 
  • Candy Corn
Bake the cookies according to the package and allow to cool.

Frost the cookies

For the Mama (or Daddy) Unwrap the bite sized candy and push a candy corn on each side.

Apply frosting to the top of the candy allowing it to go over the front a bit.  Press two candies in the frosting to make they eyes.  Then press on candy corn in the center to make the beak.  This will make the head.

Apply frosting to the bottom of the head or to the top of the body and press them together.

Place body on the top a frosted cookie.  Take another frosted cookie and press it to the back of the body.  Put candy corn all around the back of  the cookie to make the tail feathers.

To make the baby turkey, use only 1 candy and press the candy corn on each side and the center of the bite candy and frost the top and add the eyes.   Do the cookies as indicated in the above step.
