Happy Fall

Happy Fall y’all! I cant really say I know much about fall, since here in Florida we don’t get it. Well my calender on the fridge says today is the first day of fall. But the thermometer on my house says its still smack dab in the middle of sizzling summer! So many of you say your nights are starting to cool off. Here in Tampa, you can cut the humidity with a knife and you have to still bathe in Deep Woods Off to warn off the horse sized mosquito’s! Ohhh happy days!!!

Anyways, what a better way to start of “FALL” than turkey? No not the kind we usually pair with mashed potatoes, the Oreo Bread of Turkey!
Aren’t they adorable? I am not sure where they originally came from, probably one of those crafty holiday food magazines. I saw these many moons ago at a party and they always stuck in my head.

Writing the directions down without a visual is hard. But just one look at them and you can pretty much figure out how to make them.
Here is what you need for 1 turkey
2 DOUBLE stuff Oreos
7 Candy Corns
1 malted Milk Ball
1 Reece’s Cup
Chocolate Frosting(the premade kind in the tub)
White, red, orange and black decorating frosting(the kind in the squeeze tube)

Lay the one Oreo down. Take a smear of chocolate frosting and glue the other Oreo so it stand on top of the bottom Oreo(this one serves as the Turkeys back)
With the chocolate frosting, “glue” the Reece’s cup to the bottom and back Oreos
With the chocolate frosting glue the whopper to the top of the Reece’s.
Place 5 candy corns tip down into the vanilla cream of the “back” of the turkey
For the beak…Break off the tip of 1 candy corn and with the white frosting glue it on the malted milk ball.
Dab on the eyes with the white and black frosting.
Make feet with the orange frosting
Make the waddle with the red frosting
Affix 1 candy corm to the rear of the turkey..for his hiney!


Enjoy..the kiddos will get a kick out of these!

    So, so, so cute! What a great way to start fall. I know what you are saying about Florida though. We lived in Georgia for so long that living out in Utah is a tough climate change.
    I might have to make these for my daughter’s birthday which falls on Thanksgiving this year!

    Lesle! Those are too cute. I am going to try to turn them into Hokiebirds and sit them on top of cupcakes!!
    BTW – you need to drop by my blog and check out the new Pie Idea…you’d rock at it, even though we don’t have the details – YET!!

  29. 29

    Too cute-I used to do something very similar with my first graders for Pilgrim Day.

  30. 30

    Leslie, they are adorable, indeed!
    If only my kid could eat Reese’s cups… nut allergy sucks. But anyway, the idea is brilliant!

  31. 31

    I made these last Thanksgiving (minus the PB cup) and they were so adorable. My daughter loved helping. What cute pics! Thanks for reminding me of these! I’ll have to try it with the PB cup this year.

  32. 32

  36. 36

    such a wonderful idea! i’m just a college student but i might have to share these with my room mate and friends ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. 37

    I used to love making these for fall! I haven’t made them since I was a kid, I did DID go crazy for them. We did ours with caramels and some other stuff I can’t remember, these ones look even more tasty and cute though! My kids would die and go straight to heaven.

    LOL on the butt looking big. Yes! It does!

    Okay, you’ve used your get out of jail free card, you only get one! I kid. I feel the same way. Returning all of these comments takes HOURS upon HOURS doesn’t it?! I feel like as my blog grows, I get further and further behind in all aspects of my life. Good luck catching up!

  38. 38

    that’s the cutest butt i’ve ever seen ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL!! they are fantastic Leslie! You should open a bakeshop your head doesn’t run out of creative and delicious ideas like this. I’ll be your first customer

    Started laughing as soon as I saw the photos – very cute.

  40. 40

    My cousin did these at everyone’s place setting one year for Thanksgiving. My 7 year old could hardly get through the meal. They’e so cute.

    I’m with you on the heat. Here in Southern Calif. it’s mid 80’s still. Luckily though- no humidity here and no mosquitos. I don’t know how you do it!!

  41. 41

    Oh my goodness, those are so cute. I need a craft to do with some cub scouts and that looks perfect!

  43. 43

    I LOVE these turkeys!! So cute!

    Thanks for the comment earlier– I have not had a chance to try the lemon loaf yet because I have been in the middle of a move to a new house…but as soon as I get settled I will try it!

  44. 44

    DOnna in VA…

    No kiddos required to make them! They are just as fun for adults to make them..and more fun to eat!!

  45. 45

    These are really cute. i would love to make these. Can i link back to your post if/when I make these? Thank you.

  52. 52

    I made the turkeys today and it was a fun project. Thank you for allowing me to link back to your original post. I keep trying to mske a hype link back but blogspot is being stubborn.

  53. 53

    Ok i linked to your post. The attention span of the kids was slowly going so we had to finish our turkey as fasy as possible so the kids could eat them!

  54. 54

    I love these!!! What a cute idea! I recently made something similar but they were witches…I am actually making more tonight and posting it tomorrow. My husband is a school teacher and loves taking things like this to his kids! Thanks for the idea! I look forward to making them!
