Shake Your Tail Feathers with Our Oreo Turkey Pops!

Last year was the debut of our now legendary Thanksgiving Oreo Turkey Pops. Maybe the cutest and most fun Thanksgiving project out there, three year olds to folks in their nineties love making Oreo Turkey Pops. And since they were so popular last year, we’ve brought them back for a second year!


Ingredients:

– candy fruit slices

– chocolate melts

– Oreos

– soft caramels

– candy eye balls

– round orange sprinkles

– small heart-shaped sprinkles

Tools:

– lollipop sticks

– decorating bag

– small round piping tip

Start by gathering your materials.

Next, spread some sugar on a flat surface. Use the palm of your hand or a rolling pin to gently flatten a fruit slice. Continue flattening until the slice is thin and fanned out, like a tail.

To give the tail a layered effect, roll each of the next two slices slightly smaller than the last. Repeat process with remaining fruit slices. Next, melt your chocolate melts and add to a pastry bag fitted with a small round piping tip (alternatively, you could just cut off the tip of the pastry bag). Use the chocolate to attach the “tail feathers” to each other.

Add additional chocolate to the bottom of the tail and set upright on a cookie sheet or parchment paper to dry. Don’t forget to insert the lollipop stick! Add another dollop of chocolate between the back and middle tail feathers and place the stick in between the two layers.

Now it’s time to make those cute little faces! Start by unwrapping the caramels. Soften caramels in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds, then remove and gently roll into a ball. Then, flatten caramels slightly.

Then apply a few small dots of chocolate to the caramel for the eyes, nose, and gobble. Very carefully place each piece into place. Now use more chocolate to attach the “face” to the “body” (aka Oreo).

Let body dry for 10 minutes. Once the body has had some time to set up, attach to the tail feather with more chocolate.

Then pop your turkey pops in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before standing up. Now you’re ready to let those turkey pops shake their tail feathers!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
