  • CUSTOMIZE it with your own ingredient additions or decorative skills.
  • REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
  • While your cookie balls are in the refrigerator, make your turkey heads and tails by printing off the template, cutting out the shapes, and gluing them to toothpicks. (Hint: one toothpick cut in half works perfectly for one turkey tail and one head)

  • When cookie balls are firm, attach one head and one tail to each “body.”

Share and enjoy!

OREO Cookie Ball Turkeys

I love OREO cookie balls (but who doesn’t?)! And I love this recipe, because it is super simple, and you can customize it however you want. If you prefer peanut butter flavored OREOS, go for it—if you want to use milk chocolate candy melts to make brown turkeys, more power to you!

Plus, these OREO cookie ball turkeys are also a great way to get the little ones involved! Thanksgiving food-prep isn’t always something that children get to be a part of, but dressing up these OREO cookie balls to look like turkeys is definitely a fun way that they can help out and tell everyone at Thanksgiving dinner that they did.

You can find OREOS in the cookie isle at your local Walmart.

Enjoy making (and consuming) these adorable “gobblers!” They are sure to be a crowd favorite at your next Thanksgiving get together!!

What do you usually bring to Thanksgiving dinner?

    CUTE! The first thing I thought was “NAME PLACE CARDS!” You could hand write a name or initial on each tail. Our family did this for years even though we all knew each other! it was understood we could sit wherever we wanted, this was just one fun tradition we always enjoyed for holiday dinners.

      Hi Vikie,

      If you click on the “Download” button just under the first image (above the ingredients), it will take you to the file in Google Drive. Then, just click on the download button (down arrow icon) above the files.

      Hope that helps!
