Thanksgiving No-Bake Turkey Cookies

Time to decorate for Thanksgiving and start gathering recipes.

These cookies have been our family tradition for almost 20 years now. Making them is a special time the children look forward to every Thanksgiving. Giving them to neighbors and friends is just as fun.

No Bake Turkey Cookies

Fudge Striped Cookies
Chocolate bonbons (Christmas candy aisle at Walmart)
Semi-sweet chocolates
Candy corn

Melt some of the semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave on low setting to use as glue. Cut one-fourth of the cookie off to make the tail. Coat the flat part of the bonbon with melted chocolate to “glue” to the center of the cookie (covering the hole).

Cover one side of the candy corn with melted chocolate and press on the bonbon to make the face.

Use a toothpick and melted chocolate to make two eyes. Use two unmelted pieces of semi-sweet chocolate to make the feet. Place each finished turkey on a plate (or wax paper) and refrigerate until firm. ENJOY!

    What an easy, adorable cookie idea for Thanksgiving 🙂

  4. Dineen says:

    I’ve done something like these with littles when I worked with schools. We used vanilla wafers, chocolate frosting, candy corns and malted milk balls (the bon-bon).

    The candy corns were glued in a fan-shape to create a colorful tail along the upright cookie tail portion.

    I cannot remember the face and wattle parts.

    It’s tricky getting the cookies to stand up. It’s messy dealing with the frosting and little hands, but fun and cute.

    We love these, and have made these a couple of times. However, we use large marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate (very messy) for the body. This year we’ll try it with the Bon-Bons. Thanks!!

    I used a marshmallow and dipped it in melted chocolate (almond bark) instead of the bon bon. I also used chocolate covered pretzels for the “feet” They are so adorable to pass out to the neighborhood kids for Thanksgiving!
