These Candy Pretzel Bites are tasty and adorable.  The perfect desert idea for you Thanksgiving celebration!! They are salty, sweet and so cute that no one will pass them up. (They are a litte messy to make...but so fun)

Candy Eyeballs


  1. Preheat oven to 300.  ine a baking sheet with parchement paper (helps with clean up)
  2. Place pretzels down on the baking sheet
  3. Unwrap Rolos candies (I had Maggie do this as I was getting everything ready...keeps the kiddos busy) and place them in the center of each pretzel.
  4. Place them in the oven until the chocolate in soft (about 1 minute)
  5. Start decorating by placing the eyeballs towards the top.  Take M&Ms then finally the candy corn and insert them along the top of the Rolos for Feathers.

Turkey Cheese Stick Craft:

This would make another fabulous Thanksgiving treat or party favor.  Your children will go crazy over these little cheesy snack packs when they see them all decorated as fun turkeys.  


  1. Cheesy Stick snacks (I used store brand)
  2. Craft Paper (I used orange and red, but let your children create their own turey)
  3. Googly Eyes (sticky back)
  4. Scissors
  5. Glue Dots


  1. Cut out a small diamond shape and fold in half for the beak
  2. Cut out 2 small rectangles for the feet (I added slits to mine)
  3. Cut out the Waddle (red hangy thing)

Use the back of the sticks to decorate.  The orange part will be the head and the sticks (or crackers) will be the body.  

Have fun and make some CRAZY turkeys.

Do your children love pudding, Jello, or fruit cups as much as mine?  These litte feathered friends are a fun and simple way to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Have your children decorate their cups for a great Kid table decoration.
