I made some Thanksgiving turkey Rice Krispy treats (actually I made them with Cocoa Krispies). I got the idea from a party I went to several years ago. I’ve modified them a bit through the years, but here is the result, and how I make them.
I started by making the Rice Krispy treats, here’s the recipe I used:
Thanksgiving Turkey Rice Krispy Treats
- 4 cups Cocoa Krispies
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup of peanut butter (optional)
I melted the marshmallows and the butter in the microwave for about a minute in a medium bowl. Then when they were melted I added the cocoa powder and the peanut butter and stirred that all together. Then I added the Cocoa Krispies and stirred until they were all coated.
I put a little non stick cooking spray on my hands and shaped the Krispy mixture into balls, then let them sit. This made about a dozen treats, so if you’d like to make more you can double or triple the recipe.
To assemble the turkey Krispy treats you’ll need:
- Oreo cookies
- icing (for glue)~ I used some Betty Crocker icing I had in the cupboard.
- candy corn
After the Krispy treat balls have cooled you’re ready to assemble. Poke the tips of about 8-10 candy corns into the middle icing layer of an Oreo cookie. Do this gently or the cookie will break. Then use a little icing for glue to stick the Oreo cookie turkey tail to the Rice Krispy body. Add another candy corn to the body for the head by sticking it on with icing.
These are super easy to make, and my son had a blast helping.
