Thanksgiving Turkey Oreo Cookie Balls

I had some googly candy eyes left from making Peanut Butter & Chocolate Spider Cookies for Halloween, so I thought I would make these cute little Thanksgiving Turkey Oreo Cookie Balls.

I had some fun little “turkeys” to share mine with.  Like this one….

Here is the recipe, which I tweaked slightly from the original found on Pink When:

Thanksgiving Turkey Oreo Cookie Balls

1 Package Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 36 cookies)
1 package (8oz.) cream cheese (softened)
1 Bag Nestle’s Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips, Melted
1 Bag Candy Corn
Candy eyes

Crush OREO cookies to a fine crumbly mixture (I placed in a Ziploc Freezer bag and rolled a marble rolling pin over them).  Mix in the softened cream cheese.

Roll into one inch cookie balls, and freeze for 10 minutes.

Dip cookie balls into melted chocolate and place on a prepared cookie sheet covered with wax paper.

Place into the refrigerator for 15 minutes to an hour before decorating.

Add 5 candy corn to the back of the ball as tail feathers by gently poking into the cookie ball.

Use additional melted chocolate as glue to attach the candy eyes, nose and feet.  (For each turkey, cut a piece of candy corn – using the white tip as the nose, and the orange part (cut in half) as feet.)

Gobble Gobble!
Cheers & Hugs,
