Step By Step Pictures and Tips

Before we get to the printable recipe, here are some photos showing you how to make them, along with some tips. If you have some questions, please leave them in the comments!

1. Prepare The Cookies

Since you are using pre-made cookie dough, you just have to form them into the right shapes so they are the perfect base for the turkeys.

Remember to preheat your oven before you do anything else. Cookies don’t bake very well in an oven unless it is preheated. Then, line the baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat – just make sure the cookies won’t stick to the baking tray.

Then, roll all the sugar cookie dough squares into little eballs.

2. Bake The Cookies

Bake the cookie dough for 10-12 minutes and let cool. They will flatten in the oven, you don’t have to do a thing!

3. Melt the chocolate

You need some melted chocolate to use as edible glue. This is what will hold the peanut butter cup candy in place.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat one cup of Wilton’s light cocoa candy melts on 50% power for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. If you don’t heat it at 50% power, then only let it go for 30 seconds before you mix it again. Don’t let the chocolate burn in the microwave.

4. Decorate The Turkey Cookies

Unwrap Reese’s peanut butter cups, dip the bottoms in melted chocolate and carefully place them onto the bottom of each cookie. 

Dip the back of five pieces of candy corn into the melted chocolate and stick above the Reeses’s cup, fanned out for the turkey feathers.

Carefully dip the back of two candy eyes and the side of one orange M&M into the melted chocolate and stick onto the top of the Reese’s cups.
