Can you believe that Halloween is just days away and then Thanksgiving is here less than a month after that?! I can’t!! This is my favorite time of year, and I wish it would slow down! Because I love this time of year so much, I always try to come up with some fun and unique recipes to go with the holidays. If you’ve been on the site lately, you’ll have noticed a ton of Halloween recipes, but today I’ll be sharing a fun Thanksgiving recipe for Oreo Turkeys.

I first thought of the idea for these Oreo Turkeys when I made some Mickey Mouse Oreos awhile back. I knew the Wilton candy melts would be great as feathers for a chocolate-dipped Oreo. Adding some eye balls and a butterscotch chip for the beak would be the perfect finishing touch. I think they turned out pretty cute!! I hadn’t planned on making them pops at first, but thought they’d be easier to eat that way.

They key for making these turkeys is to make sure you use the double stuffed Oreos. They are easier to stick the melts into. You can also easily change up the colors of the “feathers” based on the melt colors you use. These can be found at any craft store or at Wal-Mart. The result is a super cute Thanksgiving treat that the kids will LOVE this year. My kids keep talking about how much they loved them, and I hope they’re enjoyed with your family as well!
