  • 1 package chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1 package Nutter Butters
  • 1 package candy corn-big enough bag for 30 turkeys
  • Food grade eyes-enough for the number of turkeys you are making
  • Red and yellow candy coated sunflower seeds (The package had other colors, too)
  • Melted chocolate-for assembling

Melt the chocolate slowly (I melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, stirring every 30-45 seconds). Do not get the chocolate too hot. Stirring between times will help melt the chocolate more evenly.
Use melted chocolate to attach candy corn to the back of the chocolate wafer cookies. Next, attach the eyes, beak, and the wattle to the Nutter Butter. Allow time for the chocolate to harden. I used the end of a toothpick to put the chocolate on the eyes, beak, and wattle for the turkey's cute face. I made some of the turkeys facing forward and some looking to the side for variety. 
Use the melted chocolate to attach the turkey body to the turkey feathers (wafer cookie and candy corns. Allow time to harden. I used a sucker stick to support the cookie while the chocolate hardened. This worked very well. If you do not have sucker sticks, anything else will work that is about the same size. Maybe a folded paper towel, a thin straw, or a dish cloth.
  • No need to make all 30-32 cookies that are in the Nutter Butter container, if you do not want.
  • Time will vary due to the number of cookies making and how many people are making them with you.
