Treat Tuesday #19...

Thanksgiving Oreo Turkeys

*Just in time for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

*A parent in my class shared this recipe with me.  She made a batch for our class.  YUM!

1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 
1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil 
12 fudge-covered Oreo cookies 
36 chocolate-covered pretzels 
24 candy eyeballs  
12 pieces candy corn 

*Melt chocolate chips and vegetable oil 30 seconds in a small microwave-safe bowl.
*Remove and stir.
*Continue cooking in 30-second increments until chips are melted.
*Assemble cookies using chocolate like glue; spread on back of Oreo and attach 3 pretzels in a fan pattern to look like feathers.
*Dip backs of eyeballs and candy corn in chocolate and stick to the front of the “turkey” to make a face.
*Place finished turkeys on a plate and cool in refrigerator 1 hour to allow chocolate to set.
Yields: 12 cookies
