Turkey Cookies
(saw these at a craft fair years ago--to cute!)

12 chocolate candy stars

12 caramels -- unwrapped

12 scalloped chocolate frosted shortbread cookies

12 pieces candy corn

Microwave Directions: To make each turkey, place chocolate star, point side up, on work surface. Place one caramel on microwave-safe waxed paper; microwave on high for 5 to 10 seconds or just until slightly softened. Place softened caramel on top of chocolate star, pressing down so they stick together. To make the tail, press chocolate cookie, striped side facing forward, firmly against the soft caramel to stand upright. Press candy corn on top of caramel to resemble turkey's beak. Makes 12 cookies.
