Need a cute Thanksgiving treat for your child’s classroom or homeschool group? My aunt has been toting these turkeys to our Thanksgiving meal for years. They are too cute as table toppers, and the kids love to gobble them up after dinner. Enjoy!
How to Make Turkey Rice Krispie Treats
- ¼ cup butter
- 10 ounce package of mini marshmallows
- 6 cups crispy rice cereal
- chocolate sandwich cookies
- chocolate frosting (or any frosting tinted brown or black)
- candy corn
Melt the butter. Add marshmallows and stir. Heat until marshmallows are melted. Stir in cereal. Let cool for 5 minutes.
While the mixture is cooling, twist apart sandwich cookies. Remove white filling.
Butter your hands and shape the gooey cereal into 1 1/2 inch balls.
Frost the inside of the cookie halves. Press candy corn into the frosting in a fan shape (for 1/2 of the halves).
Press a cereal ball into the frosting below the candy corn. Stick the remaining cookie half to the bottom of the cereal ball.
Dab frosting on a candy corn and stick it to the cereal ball to make the turkey’s head.
