Rice Krispie Turkey Treats
Ingredients For Turkey Rice Krispie Treats
- 6 Cups Rice Krispies
- 3 Tbsp Butter
- 4 Cups Mini Marshmallows
- Small Peanut Butter Cups
- Edible Candy Eyes
- Red M&M’s or Smarties
- Candy Corn
- 2 Tbsp Icing
- Baking Parchment
- Round Cookie Cutter
How To Make Super Cute Rice Krispie Turkey Thanksgiving Treats
1 – In a large pan gently melt the butter and add the marshmallows. Heat and stir gently until the marshmallows have melted.
2 – When you have a nice smooth marshmallow liquid stir in your Rice Krispies making sure they are all covered.
3 – Tip your Rice Krispie mix into a lined baking tray. Cover it in more baking parchment and gently push it down to smooth it out and flatten it evenly. Remove the top parchment and leave it to cool.
4 – Once it’s cold use a cookie cutter to cut out round shapes to make the turkey bodies. (Rejoin and flatten the left overs and shape them into rounds too.)
5 – To turn your Rice Krispie round into a fun turkey treat use a small amount of icing on the back of your candies and stick them into place. We used a small peanut butter cup for the turkey’s head, red candy for the turkey’s beak, edible eyes and candy corn for tail feathers. You can of course use any type of candy you like.
These turkey rice krispie treats are nice and easy for little hands to decorate and look so fun and tasty. I’m sure they’ll be gobbled up in no time!
