This is my favorite time of year and I hope it slows down! Because I love this time of year so much, I always come up with fun and unique recipes to go with the holidays.

I first came up with the idea of ​​these Oreo Turkeys when I made some Mickey Mouse Oreos a while ago. I know Wilton candy melts as great as feathers dipped in chocolate Oreos. Adding some eyeballs and butterscotch chips to the beak would be the perfect finishing touch.

The result is a super cute Thanksgiving treat that the kids will love. My kids keep talking about how much they love them and I hope they enjoy it with your family too!

melting and dipping

Before you start, make sure to gather all your supplies and ingredients.The key to them making these turkeys is Make sure you use double sandwich Oreos. They are easier to use for dipping and the candy melted feathers will stay in better.

melt. Getting the candy coating smooth is important for this lovely treat. Here are some tips:

  • Keep at the proper temperature. It was so hot it would slide off the Oreo. Too cold and it will clump.
  • Using a double boiler makes dipping sugar easier. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can easily make your own:
    • Fill a small pot with 1-2 inches of water and bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and cover the pot with a metal or glass bowl. Melt the candy in a bowl.
  • Use a microwave. Heat in 20-second increments, stirring in between to get the candy hot enough to dip.Make sure not to overheat

dipping. Inserting suction cups prior to dipping makes it easier to dip Oreos. If you don’t have suction cups, I’ve found that using a simple fork works well for them too.

sugar feet: Candy feet form when excess coating drips off and collects on the bottom of the snack. To prevent this from happening, let the excess coating drip off before setting on parchment paper. If you do notice the coating starting to pool, use a toothpick to “cut” the pool out of the treat. If a foot is already fixed, just snap/trim it off.


ensure fast work Dip the Oreos in the chocolate while it’s still hot, otherwise the eyes and beak won’t stick to the Oreos.

If you want to change it:

  • Use candy corn instead of candy melted feathers
  • Use golden Oreos instead of regular Oreos
  • Add red icing for turkey gobbling
  • You can also easily change the color of the “feather” based on the melt color you use. These can be found at any craft store or Walmart.

lead and store

Advance time: If you want to prepare these ahead of time for a party or as a holiday gift, I recommend making them the night before and leaving them on parchment paper on the counter overnight so they have plenty of time to set.

Store: You can store these dipped cookies for a while and still look good. They can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week, or frozen for about a month. Be sure to let everything set before storing and separating the layers with wax paper.

Because we use candy melters, they don’t create the white dusty “bloom” that other chocolates do when they’re stored.
