The MOST FUN and DELICIOUS Thanksgiving Dessert

I'm not sure about you, but as a child I didn't like pumpkin pie.  I didn't even like the flavor of crust....I'd load that bad boy up with whipped cream, take it back to my seat, eat the cream off the top and leave the pie to sit.
  I know, I know....what was WRONG with me?!?!?

Anyway, a few years ago, my mom discovered this little gem
(she teaches kindergarten)

Where were these when I was little?!?!?

And they are as delicious as they are cute!

For each turkey, you'll need:

  • a chocolate covered cherry,

  • two chocolate cookies (I used Anna's brand.  Chocolate Mint)

  • Chocolate frosting

  • 3 candy corn (this one is carmel apple flavor- that's why its red but reg.. looks just as cute)

Once you have them all at your disposal, start sticking them together with the frosting!
I start by attaching the cherry to the "tail feathers"  The cherry actually sits on its side when the turkey is complete.  Then I put them on the base cookie.  Then the head.  Then I cut the last 2 candy corn in half and put the small ends in front for feet.  Don't make these more than a day in advance.  The cookies start to go stale the minute you open the sleve.

I don't like pumpkin pie, either! Or pecan pie! And I only like completely full-out handmade apple pie. YUM! These little turkeys are adorable. :)
