Easy kid-friendly Thanksgiving treats for kids – Turkey OREO Balls.
Hey friends! I have one more Thanksgiving treat idea to share with you today. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but the kids started a YouTube page over the summer. They are having so much fun with it! My husband has been making silly videos with the kids since they were babies and uploading them on Facebook for our family to watch. He decided to start sharing them on YouTube and now they’re venturing into making easy kid-friendly treats. One of the treats they recently shared are these Turkey OREO balls.
If you’ve never made OREO balls before you might be surprised with how easy they are to make. You simply crush up OREO cookies and mix them with cream cheese. Once the balls are shaped and chilled in the refrigerator you dip them in melted chocolate. Then you can get creative with the decorating by adding holiday sprinkles or making cute characters. With Thanksgiving coming up they had the idea turn them into Turkeys! I’m so proud of these kiddos and love seeing them be creative. You can watch their video below.
