What are you thankful for?  Today especially, I am thankful for our veterans and all those who have served our country.  Be sure to thank a veteran today!  I have so many more things to be thankful for: my husband and beautiful baby girl, our families, our home, good jobs, my friends.  The list could go on and on.  I hope that you'll take some time this month to really reflect on what you have and be thankful for it!

These cookies are a fun Thanksgiving treat!  I made them by myself, but if you have kids, I think it would be a fun activity for them.  The concept is simple: an Oreo cookie coated in chocolate and decorated with candies to look like a turkey!

I listed amounts for the ingredients, but you really don't have to abide by those.  You can easily make more or less, just adjust the amount of chocolate based on the number of cookies you want to make. You can purchase the Candy Eyeballs online or at a local craft store.

My dad saw these cookies sitting on my counter the other day when he came over to babysit.  He said something like 'Oh, those cookies look like turkeys!' Well...that was the goal, so it looks like I was successful!

Cookie Turkeys

Ingredients:

8 Oreo cookies
1/2 cup chocolate chips
40 candy corn pieces
16 Wilton Candy Eyeballs

1. Place cookies on a piece of waxed paper.

2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30 second increments until it can be stirred smooth.

3. Spoon approximately 1 Tablespoon of melted chocolate over each cookie. It should spread on its own over the cookie, but if it doesn't, you can spread the chocolate with a knife.

Alternatively, you could dip the entire cookie into the chocolate.

4. Press 4 candy corn pieces around the edge of the cookie, point side facing in, as the feathers.

5. Add the candy eyes and the beak (the tip of a candy corn).

6. Allow the chocolate to set before serving or storing.

Store in an airtight container.
