How to Make Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pops
Looking for a Yummy treat for the kids this Thanksgiving or maybe a Fall Party? You may want to try your hand at making my Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pops. You have a Delicious Nutter Butter Cookie with Colorful Chocolate Feathers that everyone will love to eat. Not only do they taste good, but they will look great on your Table too.
These are Easy to make and I am going to show you Step by Step how I created them so you can do it too !! Gobble Gobble Sweet Turkeys here we come….
I just have to say that I had so much fun creating my Oreo Bat Cookie Pops that it inspired me to create these Turkey Cookie Pops. I had seen Turkeys made using Nutter Butter Cookies before, but wanted to kick it up a notch. I sketched out my idea and brought it to life and I must say I think they came out great – Yes I am patting myself on the back, that is OK right? So my Photo Tutorial is sharing me creating them for the first time !!
Here is what you will need to create these Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pops:
- Nutter Butter Cookies of course
- Chocolate Melting Wafers – Red, Orange & Yellow
- Cookie Pop Sticks
- 3 Make n Mold Fine Point Decorating Bottles (Explained Below)
- Edible Candy Eyes
- Orange Starburst Candies (Optional)
- Wax Paper
- Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pop Template – This is my drawing you can print out and use is you like
So here are the majority of my Supplies ready to go. The ones that are crossed out I decided not to use in the end. Oh and the Lucky Charms in the background – they were not used for these Turkey Cookie Pops, but for my breakfast the next morning – lol. The only additional items you need is a Piece of Paper to draw out your Template (or Print mine) and a Clipboard or Heavy Cardboard to create the design on as seen below.
To start off Take a piece of paper and trace a Nutter Butter Cookie. Then Draw on your Turkey Feathers around that. Then within the Turkey feathers break them into 3 sections for your colors. Now I decided to share my Turkey Cookie Pop Template that I used if you like to use mine – you can Download and Print it HERE. Then I use a Clip Board to attach my Template too – makes it easy and it holds it in place for when you add the chocolate. Then take a piece of Wax Paper and cover it up.
Next I created my Beaks using some Orange Starburst Candies I had on hand. This is optional – you can also just create Beaks using some of the Orange Chocolate, but I wanted to add a little something extra. So all I did was Slice my Starburst and then cut out Triangles for the beaks. If you have a hard time cutting them you can stick them into the microwave for a few seconds to soften them up. I did not need to do that, but you can if needed.
The Make n Mold Decorating Bottles are just a plastic bottle I purchased at the Craft Store and they are used for Decorating with Melted Chocolate (These are my new favorite Toys). All you do is fill it up with the Chocolate Melting Wafers and Microwave it on 50% Power until the Chocolate Melts. Then you just add the Tip back on and you are ready for business.
The Bottle I used for the Yellow Chocolate is not a fine tip – it is larger, BUT that is only because I did not have 3 of the fine tips on hand at the time. I recommend the Fine Tips.
So start with your Melted Yellow Chocolate and then fill in the center and the first section on the Feathers. Then Place on your Cookie Pop Stick and cover with some more of the Yellow Chocolate, then place your Nutter Butter Cookie on Top.
Next you will use your Melted Orange Chocolate to fill in the next section on the feathers making sure you touch the Yellow Chocolate so it all sticks together when set. Once you have the Orange done then take your Melted Red Chocolate and fill in the last section on the Feathers.
Now for my favorite part – creating the Turkey Face. Using your Melted Chocolate as Glue add two dots where your eyes will go then place your Candy Eyes on Top. Then do the same for the Beak. Then using your Melted Red Chocolate add a Snood on the side of the Beak. Can I just say I did not know what that thing was called until I had to look it up for this post – A Snood, what a weird word. It is just a flap of skin that hangs over the turkey’s beak. It turns bright red when the turkey is upset or during courtship. Just some Education while I am at it in case you were not sure like me – lol.
So there you have it – The Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pop is Born !!! So once you are done with that stick it into the freezer for about 5 Minutes to harden and set. Then take it out and carefully remove the wax paper and it is ready.
To display them I took a Styrofoam Base and stuck the Cookie Pops in. I covered the base with some Shredded Paper that looked like Hay and added some Silk Fall Leaves Scattered on top. Perfect Centerpiece for your Kids Fall Party or Thanksgiving Day Dessert Table.
I hope you will be inspired to give these Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pops a try – They really are extremely easy to make.
If you create some share a photo with me and I will add it right here for all to see.
I love when people put my ideas to work and here are my Nutter Butter Turkey Cookie Pops being used as a Cupcake Topper from Relatively Reagan. What a great way to use them – Love !!!
