Sometimes a fun after school snack is just what a couple of kids need on a dreary Monday. Sure, sure. Your kids don’t NEED animal-themed, candy-eyed, cutest-thing-ever snacks. But it sure is a good day when you giggle with the kids over something as fun as these Turkey Treat snacks!
Turkey Themed Snack Idea for Kids (and Adults)
(Unwrap one for each turkey you want to make. Unwrap three more. Sneakily eat them while the kids aren’t looking.)
Colored candy in brown, red, yellow, and orange
To make the Turkey treats:
Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees F. Place a few round crackers on a baking tray. Place one unwrapped Rollo on each cracker. Place the tray into the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep a close eye on the chocolates to make sure they do not bubble.
Pull the tray out and gently press the candy eyes strait down onto the Rollos. The chocolate will crack and gooey caramel will ooze out. Yum.
Using two hands, place the chocolate candies (We used M&Ms.) into the top of the Rollo by pressing them into the chocolate on their sides. Add an orange candy for the turkey’s beak.
Let the turkeys cool like the super cool turkeys they are.
Enjoy a turkey treat with a kiddo fresh off of the school bus and enjoy the giggles and smiles!
(This turkey treat is equally enjoyable by kids who have not recently gotten off of a school bus. Children who are at home or at school, at play dates, or at Grandma’s for Thanksgiving will love them too!)
We made a similar turkey snack last year and will be making another batch of our Pretzel Rod Turkeys soon!
