Tonight we made turkeys. This is something we have been doing for many years. I cannot remember who I learned this from or when it started but it has been at least since my son was in 1st or 2nd grade and he is in college now.
Striped Shortbread cookies
Chocolate frosting (not shown)
You will need to zap your caramels for a few seconds so you can roll them into a ball. This is the hardest part.
Once you have shaped the caramel place it on top of the kiss. Sometimes we put some frosting on the kiss to help cement the pieces.
Put some frosting on the top of the caramel and place a candy corn on top. Now our turkey is taking shape, he's looking more like a turkey now!
Put some frosting on the cookie and attach the caramel to the cookie. Looking good!
We made a lot of turkeys tonight. It just would not feel like Thanksgiving without them. What are your Thanksgiving traditions?
