We had another session of Nana's Cooking Camp over the weekend and made some Turkey Pops, but first we went to see The Peanuts Movie in 3-D! Oh my goodness, do I ever love 3-D movies!! We had so much fun!! This turkey pop that is pictured is actually one that one of the kids made.
Here's how to make the Turkey Pops, which I found in the supplement of our newspaper, and slightly adapted:
Vanilla sandwich cookies
Vanilla icing (I made a small batch of buttercream)
Nutter Butter Bites
Wilton candy eyes (you also could use mini marshmallows, cut into small pieces and add a dab of colored icing gel for the pupils)
Fruit Leather or Fruit Roll-Ups, or twizzlers
Coffee Stirrers (I used lollipop sticks, but they were too thick)
Twist apart a vanilla sandwich cookie and apply a little icing on one cookie half. Press two halves back together.
Insert coffee stirrer into the cookie sandwich. (You also could just leave this step out).
Apply a small amount of icing to the back of the Nutter Butter Bite and press into the face of the vanilla cream sandwich.
Insert four candy corns into the top half of the cookie for the "feathers".
Apply a small amount of icing to the back of the candy eyes and put onto the face of the Nutter Butter Bite.
Break off the tip of another candy corn to make the turkey's "beak", and affix to the face of the Nutter Butter Bite, just below the eyes.
Cut a triangle of fruit leather or roll-up and affix beneath the beak with some icing. Insert two pretzel pieces into the icing at the base of the cookie sandwich and you're ready to gobble your turkey pop!
These kids love to have cooking fun!
The two below are my oldest (15) and my youngest (1) that don't participate, but I soooo love being with them!
