So just in case you too have a very bossy (albeit cute) toddler and the sweetest little two-month-old, OR things are just absolutely crazy and you need a quick treat, I’ve got just the last minute treat you need for this Thanksgiving. Just FIVE ingredients, four minutes in the oven, and 10 minutes *top* of assembly. The other great thing about these little turkey treats is that they can double as a table decoration! Scatter a few turkey pretzels around the table and voila, edible table decor (AKA my favorite type of decor!)
Here are some more delicious recipes to add to your Thanksgiving menu:
- Snack-sized mini muffins decorated like turkeys
- The best crockpot sweet potato casserole
- Roasted Sweet Potato and Wild Rice Salad
- Traditional Southern Cornbread Dressing
- Delicious Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake bars with a Streusel Topping
- Turkey Nutter Butters
- 20 pretzels
- 20 chocolate caramel candies I use Rolos
- 40 edible eyes*
- 1 bag miniature M&Ms baking bits
- 1 bag candy corns
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Lay out the pretzels in an even layer on the tray.
Place a rolo in the bottom third of each of the pretzels.
Bake for 3-4 minutes or until the rolos are soft enough to press down.
Press in three candy corns for feathers at the top of the rolo. In the center, press in 2 edible eyes.
Attach an orange mini M&M "beak" and a red mini M&M next to the beak.
Enjoy the same day (these are best fresh and not great by the next day. I'd say the furthest they could be made in advance in about 4 hours.)
*I find the edible eyes in a craft store in the baking aisle OR in the grocery store in a cake decorating/baking aisle near sprinkles and other cake decorations.
