Have each child follow these steps:
- Frost the inside of two chocolate-covered Oreo cookies and place them together (for the turkey’s base).
- Frost a Nestle Jingle candy to the top of the Oreo cookie base (for the turkey’s body).
- Frost a chocolate chip to the Nestle Jingle candy (for the turkey’s head).
- Frost a red hot candy under the chocolate chip (for the turkey’s wattle).
- Frost the base of the turkey behind the turkey’s body.
- Place five candy corns (large tip facing out) to this area (for the turkey’s feathers).
After kids each make a candy turkey, have them enjoy their creation. While they eat, encourage them to talk about all the things they’re thankful for this Thanksgiving-including yummy candy!
