Turkey Leg Treats

Turkey Leg Treats - A super fun Thanksgiving twist on rice krispie treats that will delight the kids.

Oh my goodness,  we had such a wonderful weekend! The weather was absolutely beautiful, and we spent Saturday and Sunday celebrating our children’s fall birthdays with family and friends. This week we’re gearing up for Halloween and I’ve even started thinking about and planning for the next major holiday. . .Thanksgiving!

You know I love cute desserts and I couldn’t wait to share these little Turkey Leg Treats with you. I first saw a version of these treats on The Chick n’ Coop and I thought they were pretty adorable.

Of course I’m always up for the challenge to make a recipe even more simple, so I did. . .and I added some sprinkles, too. . .just for good measure!

Have you ever seen these graham cracker sticks? They’re shaped just like bones, and I thought they would be a great alternative to putting marshmallows on the ends of pretzel rods. You know how I like quick and simple. Who doesn’t, right?

I started by melting some CANDIQUIK and dipping my little graham cracker bones about 3/4 of the way into the melted candy. Then I took my rice krispie treat mixture, wrapped it around the very end of the bone, pressed some sprinkles onto the treats and let them set for about 10-15 minutes.
