How To Make Tasty Turkey Treats for Thanksgiving

For this week’s Make It Monday (87th edition), I wanted to show you how to make tasty Turkey Treats for Thanksgiving. It’s a little different from our normal papercrafting projects but just as fun and meaningful! I’ve made these a lot in the past but probably haven’t done them in a number of years. Maybe since I last did a blog post about how to make them! Here’s the list of ingredients that you’ll need to have:

  • Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • Chocolate Star Candies
  • Fudge Striped Cookies
  • Candy Corn
  • Chocolate Fudge Frosting
Turkey Treat Step 1 Body & Feet


Connect one (1) Chocolate Covered Cherry to two (2) Chocolate Star Candies with some Chocolate Frosting (this is your “glue” if you will.) Say hello to your body and feet!
[Side note: Chocolate Star Candies can sometimes be hard to find. This might be part of the reason why I don’t make them as often anymore! But–there is a work around. Make them yourself! Simply melt some chocolate and then add to an icing bag with a star decorator tip and squeeze out adorable handmade stars onto wax paper.]

Turkey Treats Step 2 Tail Feathers


Again using some Chocolate Frosting, attach a Chocolate Striped Cookie to the backside of the Chocolate Covered Cherry. And don’t be afraid to use a lot of frosting…these bad boys need it!! Hello feathers.

Turkey Treats Step 3 Head


Use Chocolate Frosting to attach one (1) Candy Corn to the front of the Chocolate Covered Cherry. Hello Turkey head.

Repeat until you have a whole flock of turkeys. Or at least as many as you need this Thanksgiving. Be sure to give them a little time to set before you move them. They can be a little fragile!

These really are so quick and easy to create. And they are quite adorable, right? They make for a really fun tradition. And now that you know how to make tasty Turkey Treats for Thanksgiving, I hope you’ll have fun creating them for some very special people this year.
