Try making these cookies with your “Little Gobblers”

If you have kids in the house this Thanksgiving, try making these cute turkey cookies which are made with Rice Krispies cereal.  The Little Write Gal and I enjoyed making them.  We thought we would share the recipe with you.  I took the picture with our camera and it turned out so good I think it needs to be in a cookbook.  🙂 Enjoy!


1/4 cup butter, melted

4 cups miniature marshmallows

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

28 chocolate cream-filled sandwich cookies (I used Oreos)

1-1/2 cups chocolate frosting

1 package (12-1/2 ounces) candy corn


In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add marshmallows and stir over low heat until melted. Stir in cereal. Cool for 10 minutes. With buttered hands, form cereal mixture into 1-1/2-in. balls. Twist apart sandwich cookies and spread frosting on the inside of the cookies.

Place 28 cookie halves under cereal balls to form the base for each turkey. Place three pieces of candy corn on remaining cookie halves in the shape of a fan; press each half onto a cereal ball to form the turkey’s tail. Attach the remaining candy corn with frosting to form the turkey’s head. Makes approximately 28 servings.
