Making things together in the kitchen is a way to inspire your kids’ imagination (and appetite) and create memories and traditions for years to come. Here are a few adorable yet delicious recipes your kids will eat right up!
OREO PEANUT BUTTERCUP TURKEY
What child wouldn’t be interested in an edible decoration with all the major food groups represented—peanut buttercups, Oreos, candy corn and Whoppers? Little kids can help sort and count the candy as the bigger kids work on assembling all the pieces. Let them decorate their table with their masterpieces—then gobble them up for dessert!
WHITE ICING TURKEY COOKIES
Try making these cookies with your little turkeys! They consist of frosting and candy corn on sugar cookies—super easy and super cute! Wrap them individually for a school bake sale (sure to be a bestseller!) or fill up your cookie jar for holiday guests.

This super versatile recipe offers numerous ingredient combinations—you can just experiment until you find the perfect mix. Once you have the main ingredients together, try adding nuts, marshmallows, popcorn, Goldfish, Cheerios, chocolate chips or Craisins.
