Robin shared this recipe that looks like a great project for kids! She says:
Time to decorate for Thanksgiving and start gathering recipes.
These cookies have been our family tradition for almost 20 years now. Making them is a special time the children look forward to every Thanksgiving. Giving them to neighbors and friends is just as fun.
No Bake Turkey Cookies
Melt some of the semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave on low setting to use as glue. Cut one-fourth of the cookie off to make the tail. Coat the flat part of the bonbon with melted chocolate to “glue” to the center of the cookie (covering the hole).
Cover one side of the candy corn with melted chocolate and press on the bonbon to make the face.
Use a toothpick and melted chocolate to make two eyes. Use two unmelted pieces of semi-sweet chocolate to make the feet. Place each finished turkey on a plate (or wax paper) and refrigerate until firm. ENJOY!
