Easy Turkey Cookies

There will be a new sweet treat joining the plethora of pies on the dessert table this year! Chocolate covered sandwich cookies topped with a chocolate kiss and a fan of fruit leather are all you’ll need to to make these turkey cookies. Make them ahead or set up a station and invite your younger guests to busy themselves with making their very own turkey creations!

Easy Turkey Cookies

These festive turkey cookies could even be used as place cards if you wish! Just tuck a thin strip of paper with your guests name in between the fruit leather feathers. How cute is that?

Easy Turkey Cookies

Whether you make your turkey cookies ahead or entertain the kiddos with an edible sweet-treat-turkey-making-station, I can guarantee a fun element of whimsy will be enjoyed by all as they indulge in one of these turkey cookies.

Supplies you’ll need to make the turkey cookies :

  • sandwich cookies
  • chocolate melts
  • red & orange fruit leather strips
  • gold dragees
  • small tube red gel icing
  • small leaf cookie cutter

What you’ll do :

Melt the chocolate melts according to package instructions. Cut fruit leather with a small leaf cookie cutter into as many leaf feathers as you like (I used 4 leaf feathers on each cookie). Open cookie and spread melted chocolate over the center icing (take care not to put too much or it will squeeze out the sides). Lay the fruit leather leaves on the melted chocolate in a fan along top half of cookie. Put the top cookie back on and gently squeeze to help seal cookies back together. Spread melted chocolate on top of cookie. Place a chocolate kiss onto melted chocolate and let set a few minutes. Put two dabs of melted chocolate on kiss where eyes should go (I used a clean paint brush to do this). Place gold dragees on the dabs of chocolate and hold in place with finger for a few seconds. Squirt a small line of red gel icing to to side of the tip of the chocolate kiss to make the turkey gobbler.
Enjoy!

Wishing you & yours a very sweet Thanksgiving!
