Tookie Turkeys Cookies

Tookie Turkeys Cookies

These easy-to-make cookies are simple and fun to make for the busy dad and mom, and not too complicated for little hands to do with some supervision.

You'll need:
  • Oreo Double Stuff Cookies (package)
  • Bag of gourmet candy corn
  • Fondant in red, black and white (for eyes and waddle), or you can use candy eye's found at Hobby Lobby
  • Bag of Hershey's Chocolate Kisses
  • Orange chocolate melts
  • Cookie sheet lined with parchment or was paper
  • 2 small ramekin bowls
  • Round cake tip
To make your eyes roll white fondant thinly, taking your round cake tip using the large end cut out the whites of the eye's. Roll out the black fondant thinly and taking the same tip use the small end and cut out the black of the eyes. With a touch of water, glue the black to the white of the eyes and set aside to dry. (An easier way is to use the candy eyes.)

Take an Oreo and slip four candy corns upside down about 1/4 of the way into the white frosting, they are the turkey's feathers.

Do this for all of your cookies. In a small ramekin bowl melt a few kisses in the microwave (increments of 20 to 30 seconds) stir until melted. On a parchment or waxed paper lined cookie sheet lay out your turkey cookies. Now take a chocolate kiss and dip the bottom end of the kiss in the melted chocolate; just enough to cover the bottom of the kiss; this is to glue the bottom of the kiss to the center of the Oreo. Do this to all of your turkeys.
In your second ramekin bowl melt a few orange chocolate melts (increments of 20 to 30 seconds) stir until melted. Now carefully take your turkey and dip the very tip of the kiss into the orange chocolate, this will be the beak. Place back on the cookie sheet to harden/dry (about 5 to 10 minutes) do this to all of them. While waiting, take the red fondant and knead working until soft. Take a pea size ball and work out a waddle. Then take a touch of melted chocolate and attach waddle to the beak. Do this to all you turkeys.
Now to finish off your turkeys, take the eyes, and a food safe brush, and brush the back of the eye with melted chocolate and attach them to the sides of the kiss. You can place them goofy if you so want to give them some personality.
Voila you've now got your very own flock of turkeys!

The candy eyes I found were in a package of four Halloween sprinkles around October. If they are not on sale check out their facebook page for a coupon. Wilton fondant you can find in packages of four primary colors and are also available at Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Look for coupons for Michael's in your Sunday paper or sign up for email coupons.

Heirloom Confections - Sponge Candy

With Michigan getting hit with it's first major storm of the year, I thought it was a great time for some heirloom confections.  Yes, Sponge candy also known as Honeycomb candy, whichever name your family recipe was handed down by.  This is a sweet, crunchy, honeycomb-texture treat withhints of delicate toffee and molasses flavor. You can leave it plan or dress it up with chocolate which is what  my niece and I did for a Valentines day treat.  

You can find many recipes online or in your heirloom recipe books.  They only vary by dark or light corn syrup and white or dark brown sugar.  If you use the dark corn syrup or sugar you get a deeper toffee/molasses flavor. Whatever you choose this confection only has four ingredients and is super easy.

1 cup (white or brown) sugar 1 cup (light or dark) corn syrup 1 tablespoon Distilled white vinegar       1 tablespoon baking soda (Sifted)

Bunny Tail Treats

Since the first day of March I've had my nose pressed to the window looking for signs of spring. Alas, it's Michigan; we've had three days of snow.  Finally, my patience paid off.  I'm happy to report that our spring flowers are poking out of the ground with a few blooming in the sunshine now.  Our neighborhood wildlife is on the move and visiting our yard.  Among them are a few bunny families, which inspired me for these Bunny Tail Treats for Easter.
