Leftover Halloween Candy

I know that Halloween hasn't come yet, but here is a great idea for your leftover candy corn candy. They were a big hit last year at my family's Thanksgiving celebration and would make a great holiday tradition.

Turkey Cookies

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
1 container (12 oz) Betty Crocker® Whipped chocolate frosting
Candy corn
1 tube (4.25 oz) Betty Crocker® yellow decorating icing
Miniature candy-coated semisweet chocolate baking bits
1 tube (0.68 oz) Betty Crocker® black decorating gel

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms.
  3. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  5. Frost and decorate 1 cookie at a time. After spreading frosting on cookie, add candy corn for feathers. Pipe yellow icing for beak and feet. Add baking bits for eyes; pipe black gel for center of each eye.

Those are cute cookies. Maybe I'll make some to take to my parents' for Thanksgiving. Or maybe I'll let the kids decorate them, they would probably enjoy it.

The premade sugar cookie in a tube would work too and there would be less mess and work. :)
