Godfrey the Gobbler
He makes a great take-away gift for your guests, but I dare you to gobble him up!
1 package Keebler Fudge Striped Cookies (You'll need 2 cookies per Turkey)
1 package Small Reese's Peanut butter cups
1 container Dipping Chocolate (Found in produce section)
Melt the dipping chocolate according to package directions.
Lay the first cookie down flat on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Take a candy corn, dunk it in the chocolate and set it upright in the hole of the cookie. Let it harden. (That will brace the second cookie.)
Take a second cookie and dip the bottom part into the chocolate.
Set it upright on the second cooking (with the chocolate bottom on the cookie base)
and let it rest up against the candy corn. Let harden.
For the turkey body, dip the large side of a peanut butter
cup into the chocolate and attach it to the cookie second cookie, which is standing upright onto the base cookie.
Make the face by dipping one side of candy corn and lay it on the rim of the peanut butter cup. Dip the back side in chocolate and lay it on the peanut butter cup.
Finally….take a toothpick, dip it in chocolate and dot your eyes!
