Gobble Gobble!

Like most Americans, my family participated in our annual eat-a-thon  Thanksgiving feast.  We had it all!   Turkey, pork tenderloin, TWO kinds of potato casserole, cranberry salad, regular salad, rolls, green bean casserole, gravy, stuffing, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, chocolate pie, cheese ball, fudge, cookies, crackers, the list goes on and on and on.  Like most Americans, we ate and ate and then ate some more.

While the ladies were in the kitchen, cooking enough food for an army, my mother-in-law found this cute little edible craft for the kids to make:

Oreo turkey instructions

While I realize Thanksgiving has come and gone, I’m sure all of my Pinterest buddies will pin this for next year!  Hey…it’s never too early to plan!!!

The Oreo Turkeys turned out really cute!!

ImageAll you need are Oreos, mini Reese’s cups, malt balls, candy corn and some melting chocolate.  We used chocolate chips.  They worked just fine for us, but didn’t melt really smooth like melting wafers would have.  The important part is to get something that will “glue” everything together.

ImageMy only regret is that I didn’t get any pics of the kiddos making the turkeys.  I’m not sure what was more fun for them…making them or eating them!!!  No matter what it was, it was a great way to keep the little ones (and big ones too!) entertained while dinner was being prepared 🙂

I can see this becoming a great family tradition.  Happy Holidays!!!
