Reviews for Cookie Turkeys
"The 6 year old did these had a lot of fun used truffles instead of cherries. Will save this one for years to come."
"I was unable to find candy corn, so I cut small triangles out of circus peanuts to use as beaks. Everything turned out great!"
"I made these when I was a child and now my children make them"
"This was easy and fun to make with my grandson. We used Lindor Truffles by Lindt instead of cherries. Delicious!!!!"
"My Mother made similar "turkeys" for years, but she used the chocolate mounds and round crackers (like HiHO). She would cut a sliver off on end of the cracker used for the fan tail - in this manner it was easier to set in the frosting. The candy mound was laid on it side and the candy corn attached like the one in the picture. The salty taste was good with the sweet candies."
