Thanksgiving Treat: Rice Krispie Turkeys

The holiday season goes so quick! I’ve been thinking of Thanksgiving Treats and how to make them festive. Eventually, I came up with these Rice Krispie Turkeys.

All made from leftover Halloween candy, these turkeys are cute and perfect for Thanksgiving.

All I used to make these turkeys are:

  • Rice Krispies
  • Candy corn
  • Eye sprinkles
  • Twizzlers
  • Feathers

As I mentioned above, everything I used to make these came from Mila’s candy stash. We got a ton of mini Rice Krispie treats and this seemed like a fun way to use them. There was always an abundance of candy corn left from the Fall Scarecrow Snack Mix.

I ended up cutting little slices of a twizzler to make the turkey’s wattle. Yes, that’s what it’s called.

Then, of course, we used eye sprinkles to complete the look.

To assemble, you simple just press everything into the Rice Krispie. It’s not too difficult. One tip I’d give you is to use your hands to hold the shape of the Rice Krispie while pressing everything else in.

That way none of the ‘feathers’ or eyes fall out.

To complete the look, I added a craft feather to the back. I think it looked adorable. I’d suggest wrapping washi tape around the feather so it doesn’t stick to the Rice Krispie.

Another added bonus of this fun Thanksgiving treat is that Mila loved helping make the faces too! This could end up being a really fun activity for Thanksgiving day with the family. Im always looking for kids activities to keep them busy and smiling.

Either way, these Rice Krispie Turkeys are tasty, easy to make, and will be perfect for your Thanksgiving Day.
