Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
  • Reese’s® Peanut Butter Cups
  • Candy Corn
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Vanilla Frosting
  • Plastic Knife
  • Malted Milk Balls
  • Food Coloring

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Carefully twist apart a chocolate sandwich cookie. Add some chocolate frosting to about half of one side of the cookie (right on top of the creme filling).
  2. Press 5-6 pieces of candy corn into the chocolate frosting, white tip down, to form the tail feathers.
  3. Add a little chocolate frosting to the other side of the cookie and press the pieces back together to secure the “tail feathers”.
  4. Unwrap a Reese’s® Cup. Using the plastic knife, cut a little sliver off the edge of the Reese’s® Cup to make a flat surface. Add a little chocolate icing to this end and “glue” it on top of the flat side of a second sandwich cookie (in the middle).
  5. Add some chocolate frosting to the back of the Reese’s® Cup and to the bottom of the cookie with the “tail feathers” and “glue” the cookie to the Reese’s® Cup, standing it upright on top of the other cookie.
  6. Unwrap a malted milk ball, add some chocolate frosting to the bottom, and “glue” it on top of the Reese’s® Cup. Using chocolate frosting, “glue” a piece of candy corn (white tip up) to either side of the Reese’s® Cup for wings.
  7. With the plastic knife, cut the white tip off a piece of candy corn, add a little frosting, and “glue” it to the front of the malted milk ball to form the beak.
  8. Using the plastic knife, cut the orange section from a piece of candy corn, then cut it in half. Add a little frosting to each piece of the candy corn and “glue” them in front of the Reese’s® Cup to form the feet.
  9. Pipe two little dots of white frosting on the front of the malted milk ball to form the eyes. Mix some black food coloring into a little of the white frosting, then pipe a dot on top of each eye for an adorable eyeball effect.
