Silly Turkey Treats

Happy Thanks-Giving-Away Week!
The girls and I made these up for dessert this afternoon, they're an easy sweet treat for Thanksgiving. Have fun!

Silly Turkey Treats
Ingredients:
Mini-doughnuts
Doughnut holes
Thin pretzel sticks
several yellow and red Starburst candies
White chocolate chips
Fruit Roll-ups
small amount of chocolate frosting or melted chocolate chips (for eyes)


Directions:
The pretzel sticks are the "glue" that holds this turkey together! Snap a pretzel stick in half, put one end in the doughnut hole and the other end in the doughnut to form the turkey's body.

Push two white chocolate chips, pointy-side down, into the doughnut hole to make the eyes. Cut a yellow starburst candy into four triangles (these will be the beaks).

Place a red starburst candy in the microwave for about 5 seconds to soften it up. Pinch off a small piece to form the wattle and press it on the side of the beak. Take a small pretzel piece, poke it in one end of the beak and the other end in the doughnut hole.

Give the kids each a pair of scissors and a fruit roll-up. Let them cut out four feather shapes and two "legs" (cut a strip with two small snips at one end for feet). Press each "feather" against a pretzel stick then push it into the mini-doughnut. Add the feet.
Using a toothpick or chopstick, place a small amount of chocolate frosting or melted chocolate chips on each eye to form the pupil. Watch them get gobbled up!
