turkey treats

I made these Pilgrim hats for my students and my EfM class. I find that adults are usually bigger fans of these sorts of things than children. They can appreciate both the craft and the sugary sweet fatness.

In making these, I have discovered that the only way to keep them from looking like they came over on the Mayflower several hundred years ago

is to dip the marshmallow bottoms in the melted Baker's chocolate,

then stick them on the fudge cookies (I used Keebler fudge-striped cookies and flipped them over so the all-fudge side would show),

and let them solidify in the fridge for 20 minutes or so before proceeding to the next step.

For the next step, simply use a butter knife to spread a thin yet opaque layer of chocolate over the remaining white parts of the marshmallow.

Refrigerate them until the chocolate is solid, and use yellow cake-decorator icing to make the little square buckle.

So, all you need for this is:
Fudge Cookies
Marshmallows that aren't smushed
Dipping Chocolate, such as Baker's
Yellow Cake Decorator Icing with a fine-tip cap

  2. Ahhh. I only WISH I had come up with this on my own. The original link is here:

    I just wanted to show the process that I found the LEAST messy in making them!

  3. The confession was funny....and I will try them this weekend...thanks for the link...


  4. These are adorable - I'll definitely make some with my grand children next week! They'll love them. Even the two year old can help! (And I've got a weakness for those Keebler's cookies!)

    Thank you so much for your interesting, thought-provoking comments today! Every point you have is 100%. I appreciate that you stopped by.

    Best wishes!

  5. I sent a link to this post to my neighbor whose three grandsons are visiting over Thanksgiving. What a wonderful thing for them to make. Thanks for sharing this adorable treat.

  6. Farmhouse, Farmgal, and NCmountainwoman THANK YOU for passing this on to the young-uns in your lives! I think it would be so much more fun to make these WITH children rather than FOR children. I hope they love it!
