Thanksgiving Treats

Hey everybody! Thanksgiving is almost here and so I figured I would share a couple Thanksgiving Day treats with you all. I found these recipes on pinterest when doing a search for Thanksgiving Day treats. I have yet to make these treats, but I definitely plan to do so on Thursday! I will post pictures on my Instagram page when I do make them for you all to see!
The first treat is Thanksgiving Pilgrim hats. These are the cutest things I have ever seen, and are super simple to make. You only need four ingredients to make these! You will need miniature peanut butter cups, chocolate wafer cookies, white frosting, and orange food coloring! The first thing you are going to do is dye your frosting orange by adding the food coloring to it. This will be used for decoration and for holding the peanut butter cups to the cookies. After getting your frosting ready you will put a small amount of frosting on the center of the cookie, I will be using Oreo thins for the cookie. After putting the frosting on the cookie you will then place the peanut butter cup upside down on the cookie. This will form a hat. The last step is to take your frosting in a frosting bag (I use a zip lock bag with the tip cut off) and drawing a line around the base of the peanut butter cup. Then add a square to the band to look like a buckle. After you do that you are done! It is such a cute treat and takes very little time to make!
The last treat I am going to share with you all is also super easy! It is a turkey rice krispie treat. For this you will need rice krispie treats cut in the shape of a circles, melted chocolate morsels, chocolate wafers, candy corn, candy eyes, and orange m&m’s. To make these turkeys you will need to make rice krispie treats and shape them into circles. After doing that you will use the melted chocolate and “Glue” on 5 candy corn feathers, one wafer for the face, two eyes and half on an m&m for the beak. Like the other recipe it is super simple to make and will take you no time at all!
These two recipes are so cute and festive. I cannot wait to make them for my family! I look forward to sharing the pictures of how they turn out with you all! What recipes do you make for Thanksgiving? Let me know in the comments below!
