I'm looking for a turkey project made from a sandwich cookie(white) a chocolate drop, and candy corn. I used to make them for a Senior Citizen home delivered meal project, but I forgot how to do it. Thanks!

Here is a website for this project! I made these last year and they are really cute on the table. The only trouble is they get stale, so the cookie gets soft. They were eaten anyway! Good luck http://www.food.com/recipe/oreo-cookie-turkeys-142998

This is so cool....I am going to have my niece and nephew make these for our Thanksgiving Table to match the turkey hats we made last year!

This is really cute and looks fun to make as well.
