I love experiencing the holidays through my children.  Watching them get excited for both Thanksgiving Day and Christmas ignites that old childhood excitement and really puts the magic back in the day.

Families gathering together, meals needing to be prepared, and tables needing to be set can get us all a little overwhelmed during the holidays.  These fun Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies are the perfect and quick treat that your kids can make with you to help break the non-stop stress we tend to put on ourselves.  This can also be an exciting treat to keep the older kids busy while you are putting the finishing touches on your meal. You only need a few simple supplies.

Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies Instructions:

Begin by melting a small amount of candy melt medallions in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second increments or until melted. You really only need a few candy melt medallions.  It’s what we will use to “glue” the pieces together.  Once the candy melt medallions are completely melted, use a toothpick to begin “glueing” your pieces.  I used a mini peanut butter cup to add a fun layer to the turkey but you could always skip the peanut butter cup if you wanted. :)

Growing up we always had a “kid” table, simply because we HAD to :)  Now with new babies, husbands and fiances we still need kid tables at our family functions.  I always like to make the kid table a little extra special for them.  I typically use an inexpensive piece of scrapbooking paper as a pop of color under their plate.  We like to add another pop of color with a bright and festive napkin.  Top that colorful napkin with a little Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie and a place setting card and your kids will love being at the “cool” table!
