Fun Thanksgiving Treats to Help Ring in the Holiday Season

Thanksgiving is the perfect time for treat making, and a little family bonding. So why not combine the two and bond while making treats! Here are some fun and easy Thanksgiving themed treats you can make with your kiddos to help ring in the holiday season.

1. Frozen Waffle Turkey

What you’ll need: 

  • 1 Frozen Waffle
  • 3 Mini Frozen Waffles
  • Cantaloupe
  • Strawberries
  • Pineapple Slices
  • Edible Eyes

What better way to start off the Thanksgiving season then with a little turkey for breakfast. A waffle turkey that is. Start by toasting all the waffles you are going to use for the turkey. Next, put the the big waffle on the plate and add a mini waffle as the head.

Cut the remaining 2 mini waffles into the shape of wings and put them on the sides. Slice various fruit and place on top as the turkey feathers. You can also cut a small piece of cantaloupe for the beak and feet if you want. Add the edible eyes, and there you go! Turkey for breakfast!

2. Pilgrim Cookie Hats

What you’ll need: 

  • Mini Peanut Butter Cups
  • Yellow Frosting
  • Fudge Stripe Cookies
  • Reese’s Pieces Candy

This festive Thanksgiving treat is pretty easy to assemble. On the bottom of a fudge cookie, put a circle of frosting in the center, then add the peanut butter cup (largest side down) over the frosting. Make sure there is enough frosting coming out from underneath the cup to be seen, if not, line the bottom edge with a thin layer of frosting.

Next, add a small circle of frosting on the side of the peanut butter cup and add a Reese’s Pieces candy. Allow to set, and enjoy!

3. Apple Turkey Craft

What you’ll need:

  • Apple
  • Toothpicks
  • Marshmellows
  • Candy Corn
  • Spice Drops
  • Rasins
  • Red fruit snack or red gummy candy, cut in half

So much creative freedom can be had with this colorful (and delicious) treat. First, wash and dry the apples you are going to use. Next, insert the toothpicks for the feet and head. Stick a large marshmallow as the head, then use additional toothpicks, as needed, to add raisins as eyes, candy corn and fruit snack as beak. Next, apply spice drops for the feet, before moving on to the feathers.

Insert as many toothpicks as you want for the feathers, in various places, on the back of the apple. Then apply spice drops of various colors for the feathers. When you’re done, admire your masterpiece.
