Oreo Turkeys with a Heart

Oreo Turkeys

It seems everyone has their own version of an Oreo Turkey.  This is mine.  It’s the same Oreo turkey I’ve been making for the last 12 years. 

What makes these Oreo turkeys unique compared to most others, is that every turkey has a heart.

It seems most people who make Oreo turkeys use whoppers for the body or the head while mine uses a cordial cherry.  It’s big and beefy like a turkey body and comes with it’s own heart.

In our house we make these Oreo turkeys either before Thanksgiving to hand out to neighbors, friends, teachers and family or we’ll wait until Thanksgiving day as a task to keep the kids busy while the adults cook. 

We’ve even used these as place card holders for the table.  Each spot gets one with a piece of paper stuck in between the body and feathers with the persons name.

These make a fun kids activity {with adult supervision or you’ll be missing candy!} and require only 4 ingredients!  I’ve had children as young as 2 help me make these.

Start a new tradition with your kids this year and whip up a special version of Oreo Turkeys with a heart!  Because everyone deserves one!
