Cute Thanksgiving Desserts
When it comes to holiday entertaining, food shouldn’t just taste good… it should look good too! Here are some cute Thanksgiving desserts that will impress your friends and family. These ideas are frugal and easy to make. Plus, they’re perfect projects for the kids to get involved with!
How cute are these Nutter Butter Turkey Cupcakes? They’re another fun way to use the Wilton Candy Eyes I love so much (who doesn’t love the silly faces they create?!). Candy corn creates the turkey’s feathers, and an orange M&M candy makes the beak. These guys (and gals) are a fun Thanksgiving Recipe for Kids. Because the kiddos will love to help you assemble them – AND “Gobble” them up!
These turkey legs are a sweet surprise… and a fun twist on the traditional Rice Krispies Treats. Instead of standard Rice Krispies cereal, use Cocoa Krispies or Cocoa Pebbles in your marshmallow mixture. Shape them around a pretzel rod dipped in almond bark for the bone. Complete instructions HERE.
They are super-easy to make, only require 3 ingredients, and involve no baking. You’ll only need cookies, miniature Reese’s candy and orange food coloring. These Thanksgiving Treats are so easy that you can literally make them just minutes before your holiday guests arrive.
These Nutter Butter Turkey Cookies also use the super-cute Wilton Candy Eyes. Instead of resting on a cupcake, an Oreo cookie is their base. Oreos and candy corn create the turkey’s plumage. You’ll also need white frosting and M&Ms candies.
Chocolate acorn treats are not only delicious, they look great on any fall table – not just for Thanksgiving! Since no baking is required, they’re great to make with younger kids. Hershey’s kisses and mini Nilla wafers form the acorn, and a butterscotch chip creates the stem.
Here is another easy cupcake idea that doesn’t require cookies, just frosting and candies. You’ll need candy corn, chocolate frosting, M&Ms candies and Wilton Candy Eyes.
These cookies are ready in less than half an hour! Super-easy, super cute Thanksgiving treats!
You’ll do a double-take when you see this Thanksgiving Treat on the table. It looks like a pumpkin pie, but it’s really a modified version of your favorite Rice Krispies Treats recipe! Instructions HERE
Yet another easy, cute turkey idea for Thanksgiving dinner! This one uses a homemade brownie recipe, but you could substitute a box mix fo the sake of simplicity. The kids will love these!
