TURKEY at Thanksgiving is a timeless tradition. But you can give your holiday meal a novel twist with these birds of a different feather. The holiday treats are cute, sweet and made from all kinds of goodies youngsters love to nibble on. "The kids and I had a ball making these tasty turkeys for Thanksgiving one year," shares Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. "They loved forming the turkey bodies from the gooey cereal mixture and twisting the sandwich cookies apart. "But using chocolate frosting to "glue" on the candy corn was their favorite part." This recipe makes a big batch of tempting turkeys, so there are plenty for snacking and sharing. These festive fall treats also would make fun favors at each place setting on your Thanksgiving table—if your family doesn't gobble them up first!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 22, 2010

I first made these with my daughter when she was in Kindergarten. Now my 2nd grade son is making them to take to school tomorrow. They're so cute! But I wish I'd bought the chocolate cream filled cookies instead of the white cream filled cookies! Or even the fudge striped cookies would work!

I made these for Thanksgiving! Everyone thought they were cute! Great for a little snack after dinner.
