Thanksgiving Chocolate Turkey Cups

Time to Gobble, Gobble!

‘Tis the season to eat, loosen your belt, then eat some more. Better yet, forget the belt, forget all the buttons, and go with elastic-waisted pants. This is Thanksgiving, after all. And if you’re not careful, you’ll shoot an eye out.

Because there can’t be too much food on the holiday table…

Here’s a little something to gobble up for dessert.

Chocolate Turkey Cup

Ingredients:

  • chocolate melts (asst. colors)
  • pretzels
  • Hershey kiss
  • gummy worm
  • chocolate chip
  • candy eyes

Directions:

Coat a paper muffin liner with melted chocolate. Chill. Meanwhile, dip Pretzel sticks into chocolate. Dip the tip of the Kiss into orange chocolate for the beak. Dip a piece of the gummy worm into red chocolate. After all pieces have set, attach pretzel feathers, eyes, head, and gummy worm with more chocolate. (I attached a chocolate chip to the outside of the cup first, to prop up the head.)

Fill with candy, mousse, or ice cream. Enjoy!

Day 4: Pumpkin Patch Snack

Spending a day at the pumpkin patch can build up a fierce appetite. Tame tummy growls with a cute pumpkin- shaped snack.

Caramel Pumpkin Pretzels

These one-bite treats are perfect on the go, or for nibbling at home. They’re sweet, they’re salty, and best of all they’re simple!

Ingredients:

Small Pretzels

Caramels

Orange melting chocolate wafers

M&M’s

Directions:

1. Warm a caramel in the microwave for about 10 seconds. (Caution, it will be very hot). Mold the caramel over one entire side of the pretzel.

2. Place on aluminum foil, and chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, melt candy wafers in the microwave. Microwaves vary, but I generally start with 30 seconds and stir, and then, continue at 30 second intervals until smooth.

4. Dip caramel pretzels in melted chocolate.

5. While candy is still wet, add an M&M for the pumpkin stem. You may need to roll a tiny piece of foil up to prop the stem into place while it hardens.

6. Chill till hardened and enjoy!

Happy Pumpkin Patching!
