What You Need
To make these yummy turkey cookies, you’ll need the following items:
- Double-stuffed golden Oreo cookies
- Candy corn
- sunflower seeds
- A small piece of orange candy (I used chocolate covered sunflower seeds from Trader Joe’s)
- Red frosting
- White frosting
- Lollipop sticks
How to Make Turkey Oreo Pops
These adorable Turkey Oreo pops come together quickly and easily. Here’s how to make them.
Make The Pop – Stick the lollipop stick into the frosting of the Oreo cookie. If the Oreo separates when you do this, just use a little of your white frosting to stick it back together.
Eyes & Nose – Place a little bit of white frosting to the back of the candy eyes and stick them to the front of the Oreo cookie. Repeat this step to place the orange turkey nose on the cookie.
Turkey Wattle – To make the turkey wattle, dip a toothpick into the red frosting and paint it on turkey’s face.
Feathers – Stick several pieces of candy corn into the side of the Oreo cookie pops to create the turkey feathers.
The Right Cookies – Make sure you are using DOUBLE-STUFFED Oreos for these turkeys. Regular ones don’t have enough frosting in the middle to hold the candy corn “feathers” secure enough.
What If The Cookie Doesn’t Hold – If you find your candy corns are moving around and not holding their place well, put a little more vanilla frosting on top and let it harden a bit before standing the cookie up.
Homemade Candy Eyes – If you want to go the extra mile, you can make your own Homemade Candy Eyes using this easy tutorial.
