So, I had mentioned we were going to try to make pretzel turkeys, and we did! We did it a bit differently than the image I had pinned so I wanted to be sure to show it to you.
I decided I didn’t want to melt and dip chocolate so we got mini pretzels and Rolos. I placed the pretzels on a baking sheet then put a Rolo on top of each pretzel.
Then we put them in the oven for a few minutes. I just preheated the oven to 350 then put them in. We left them a bit too long though so our chocolate and caramel were really melted….which made this messier than I had hoped it would be. Just leave them in 2-3 then check. If the Rolos are soft enough to press down, they’re ready!
After they cooled a bit (again, we melted them too much), we placed three pieces of candy corn on another baking sheet (lining it with parchment or waxed paper might be helpful, but we didn’t have any). Next, we took one of the Rolo pretzels and pressed it onto the candy corn, leaving the “feathers” showing from behind the pretzel. (We did flip the pretzel over so the top of the Rolo was pressed onto the candy corn. Just be sure to press it firmly so some of the caramel and chocolate presses through to the top of the turkey so your decorations will have something to stick to.)
Then, decorate! We used Wilton candy eyes, Pumpkin Spice Nestle chips (I don’t think these are available any longer, but you could use butterscotch chips) and fondant for the little red thing. (What is that thing called?)
We thought they turned out well, and the kids at our homeschool luncheon loved them. I hope you will, too!
