Ingredients you need for oreo turkey cookies:

Ingredients to make Oreo Turkey Cookie- candy corn, Oreo cookies, candy eyes, peanut butter chips.

Ingredient substitution Ideas:

  • For the Cookies – You can use any flavor of Oreos. Oreos work the best for this recipe as the candy corn fits perfectly into the cream filling. You can also use double-stuffed oreos instead of regular oreos.
  • For the Eyes – If you cannot find candy eyes in your area, you can use M&Ms or white chocolate chips.
  • For the Nose – Reese’s pieces would work great for the noses on these cookies as well.
  • For the Icing – I usually use pre-made icing to save time. However, you can use homemade royal icing or buttercream icing for this recipe. You can also use food coloring to change the color and use the icing for the nose and eyes.
  • Add a peanut butter cup. – Add a small peanut butter cup on top of the Oreo. Then add the face on top of the peanut butter cup to add more sweetness to these easy cookies.
  • Melted Chocolate. Instead of icing, you can use melted chocolate to adhere the eyes and nose. It makes the perfect glue and you can use a piping bag.

How to make turkey cookies out of Oreos:

The tops removed from the Oreos and candy corn placed on top of the Oreo filling to make the feather.

Step 1 – Untwist each Oreo. Place 4 candy corn pieces on the top of each cookie to make candy corn feathers.

Pre-made Icing placed on top of the candy corn

Step 2 – Put some of the white icing on the bottom of the candy corns to help hold the other piece of cookie back on.

Enjoy! They are really that simple to make. No fuss and no expensive ingredients. Just a few simple ingredients and you can make these super cute turkeys using oreo cookies.

I bet the kids will ask to make these cookies year after year. It might even become a fun family tradition.

    I substituted butterscotch chips for the nose as our children are allergic to peanuts.
