Who doesn’t like chocolate?! (If you don’t, you should feel very special because you are indeed a rare breed!) Since it’s November, why not get ready for the holiday festivities with a DIY project? And we have an edible project that is sure to motivate you to get creative. This project is easy to do and can serve as place holders at the dinner table if you wish. Let’s get started!
For the ingredients, you will need double stuffed Oreo Cookies, candy corn, whoppers, peanut butter cups, chocolate frosting, and yellow Frosting. (Red frosting and black sprinkles are optional for the eyes).
It’s more convenient to use the pre-filled tubes of frosting to save you the hassle as well as mess to clean up after.
Step one: Grab a cookie. You don’t have to put frosting in there, but it may help you out in the long run because it holds in the candy corn a little better. Just give it a little squeeze of chocolate, then stuff in your candy corn. If you’re in some sort of candy corn shortage, you can cut off the white tips to use later for your beaks. The candy corn sticks in better with the tip so you can leave it on. Go ahead and do all of the cookies through this step.
For the next step, put a dab of frosting on the opposite end of the cookie and secure it to the “base” cookie. It helps to place them next to a wall as they dry so they stay put. While the cookies are drying, unwrap your PB cups. Take a sharp knife and cut a sliver off of one end. (Feel free to eat the unused pieces!) It helps to gently cut in a sawing motion so you don’t break the PB cup. Cut it from the bottom of the cup.
Once those are ready, flip your cookies over, but you may find it’s easy to keep them next to the wall. Place a dab of frosting on the PB cup, and place it on the cookie, face down.
Now those little guys will need heads, so glue a whopper on there with frosting as well. Put frosting on the side of the whopper that hits both the cookie and the PB cup. Wouldn’t want a turkey running around with its head cut off, would we?
While they’re still laying there, use a dab of frosting (preferably yellow) and glue on the white tip of a candy corn for a beak. Put two yellow dots on for eyes, and for the black spots in the eyes you can use a dab of chocolate frosting, or a mini chocolate chip, or a little sprinkle. A sprinkle is really the perfect size if you have them.
Once the beak stays put, you can flip them over and draw on some little yellow feet. If you have red frosting too (usually comes in a set with the tube of yellow) you can add a little gobble gobble. Or whatever that thing is called. What is it called anyway?!
Finally, you’re done! After those steps, I wouldn’t blame you if you stood back and admired your work before going in to take a few for yourself. No judgment here because I know I would! These will be perfect if you have kids because you can do this with them. If there are no kids, this can just satisfy your inner kid that loves anything sweet with chocolate!
