These Thanksgiving sugar cookie turkeys are such a fun treat for kids and adults to make!
They’re easy, simple, and so cute. You can make them with kids or you can serve them at your Thanksgiving dinner for dessert. Your guests are sure to love them!
This is a great treat to make with your kids in November before Thanksgiving or they can make them while you’re preparing Thanksgiving dinner on Turkey Day.
The Reese’s Pieces candies look like the Turkey’s pretty feathers and the Rolo with a butterscotch chip looks just like the turkey’s mouth and wattle.
How To Make A Sugar Cookie Turkey
Step 1 – Put frosting on the back of the Rolo and put in on the bottom of the cookie.
Step 2 – Use frosting to stick one butterscotch chip to the top of the Rolo.
Step 3 – Put 2 candy eyes above the Rolo, using frosting to stick them on.
Step 4 – Make a row of yellow Reese’s Pieces around the top of the eyes and mouth. Use frosting to get them to stay.
Step 5 – Make a row of orange Reese’s Pieces around the top of the yellow row. Use frosting to get them to stay.
Step 6 – Make a row of brown Reese’s Pieces around the top of the orange row. Use frosting to get them to stay.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Sugar cookies
- Candy eyes (these are the ones I used here)
- Reese’s Pieces
- Rolo candies
- Butterscotch chips
How To Store The Turkeys
After decorating them if there are any leftover, store them in an airtight container. This will keep them fresh for a few days.
I hope you have a fun time making and serving these fun Thanksgiving treats to your family. Happy Thanksgiving!
