  • 1 (16-ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1/4 cup red cinnamon candies
  • 1 1/4 cups malted milk balls
  • 1 (16-ounce) container ready-to-spread chocolate frosting
  • 1 (9 1/2-ounce) package candy corn


  1. Separate each cookie carefully, leaving cream filling on one side; set cookie halves without filling aside.
  2. Make a turkey body by attaching a cinnamon candy (for turkey head) to each malted milk ball (turkey body) with a dab of chocolate frosting. Attach a turkey body to center of each cookie half with cream filling using a dab of chocolate frosting.
  3. Spread chocolate frosting on the inside of each cookie half that does not have cream filling. For the turkey tail, arrange candy corn on chocolate-frosting cookies with wide end of candy along outer edge. Attach each turkey tail behind a turkey body using chocolate frosting. Store assembled turkeys in the refrigerator.
