I know, it sounds silly doesn’t it. Snickers turkey drumsticks….well they aren’t in fact drumsticks but they sure look like them and are a fun edible Thanksgiving craft for kids. Now if you were lucky enough to grab a bunch of leftover 50% off Halloween candy you’re in luck. (originally published 11/16)

Otherwise just grab those mini snickers bars at the store, some marshmallows, chocolate, and pretzels to make this Thanksgiving dessert.

  1. Put white chips in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds, stir, again until chips are smooth and melted. (using 1/2 tsp. of coconut oil really helps the melting process)
  2. Dip the end of a mini marshmallow in the white chocolate and attach it to the bottom right side of the pretzel, repeat for left. Put them on to a cookie sheet.
  3. Put cookie sheet in fridge until chocolate is hard.
  4. Shape snickers bar around the other side of the pretzel so it looks like a turkey leg.
  5. Dip just the pretzel and marshmallow end in the white chocolate, put in fridge until hard.
  6. Melt brown chocolate melts the same way as white chips, dip just the snickers end into this chocolate, put on parchment paper and into fridge again until hard.
  7. Ready to eat!
