Recipe – Pretzel Turkeys

Shout out to Mommy Octopus for this recipe and presentation! What a cute and adorable little snack for Thanksgiving. At our house we always have little snacks through out the day so we do not sit down on empty stomachs, but not so heavy we cannot enjoy the main meal of the day. These would be perfect to put on a decorative plate during that time!

All you need to put these little guys together are Rolo’s, Mini Pretzels, Candy Corn, Sugar Pearls, and M&Ms. You can click on the link below to check out the original blog post if you are looking for step by step instructions. If you do make them, we would love to see a picture!

Tasty Acorn Snacks

These chocolate peanut butter snacks are perfect for a special fall treat or a get together! Everyone talks about this being Pumpkin Spice season, but I bet they never thought about Acorn treats.

All you need is Hershey’s Kisses, mini chocolate chips, and the bite size Nutter Butter cookies. Put aside 1 Kiss, 1 mini chip, and 1 cookie to go as a set and put aside how ever many you want to make. Take the rest of the mini chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave for 5 second intervals, making sure to stir between each. Dip the mini chip into the melted chocolate and hold onto the middle of the Nutter Butter. Do the same with the Hershey’s Kiss on the opposite side. Allow time to cool or put into fridge to accelerate process!
