Turkey Treats

A few years ago my friend Amy gave me this idea for these fun Thanksgiving turkey treats. I have changed it up a bit through the years and now this is our turkey we make every Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving turkeys

  • Striped cookies
  • Peanut butter cups (miniature)
  • Hershey’s kisses
  • Candy corns
  • Wilton’s candy melts 12 oz bag (In the cake decorating section there are bags of small chocolate disks used to make suckers or other candy treats. They melt easy and dry really quick. Chocolate chips could be substituted, but they take a lot longer to cool)

Melt in a small bowl about half of the bag of chocolate disks. Unwrap the peanut butter cups and kisses. Put chocolate in between two peanut butter cups to “glue” together, and a small amount of chocolate on the top to attach the Hershey’s kiss to. Let chocolate cool. Lay out striped cookies flat on a cookie sheet. Put melted chocolate on cookie and lay body part that was just assembled on top of it until dry. While the turkey is still on it’s back attach a candy corn on the Hershey’s kiss for the turkey’s “gobbler”. When that dries, put two candy corns next to each other, apply a little bit of chocolate and stand up the turkey on the candy corn feet. Let everything continue to fully dry before eating.

We have used these for teacher treats at school, treats to give the neighbors, and deserts on Thanksgiving day. We have also used them for place setting cards. Write guests names on small (1x2 inch) cardstock pieces of paper and set on the turkey behind the head and set at each place setting showing where everyone is to sit. The kids love to have assigned seats at Thanksgiving, and their own little treats for after the feast.
