Nilla Wafer Thanksgiving Turkeys are cookies sandwiched together with peanut butter, dipped in chocolate, and decorated with fall colored M&Ms, candy corn, and candy eyes, all on a popsicle stick! So fun for the kids and festive for the Thanksgiving table!
I’ve got a fun and easy treat that is perfect for the Thanksgiving table or Friendsgiving parties! What kid doesn’t like a treat on a stick?
NILLA WAFER THANKSGIVING TURKEYS
First, gather your supplies. Stores are brimming with fun fall-themed candy and treats (actually, they’re brimming with Christmas stuff, but I think you can still find fall stuff). I picked up the fall colored M&Ms at Target (to use for the feathers) and the caramel apple candy corn at Five Below (to use for the beaks).
How cute is this little guy with the turkey looming over his shoulder?! I got him from Pier 1 a couple months ago.
I picked up the popsicle sticks at the dollar store though I’m sure any crafting store would have them. I’ve seen the candy eyes at most any grocery store or Target.
I like to use Ghirardelli baking chips, they melt really nicely and make for smooth chocolate, but I’ve also used their melting wafers and they work well, too. Whatever chocolate chips you have on hand will be just fine, I’m sure 🙂
I first shared this recipe on Crafting Chicks.
