This Nutter Butter Turkey is easy, adorable, and delicious!

Though the bird itself ends up cooked and on your dinner plate for the holiday dinner, there’s no denying that the turkey is the symbol of Thanksgiving. From parade floats to décor to stuffed animals for children, the turkey takes over the month of November, and it can oftentimes be pretty adorable.

To get ready for Thanksgiving and fully embrace the cuteness of the turkey, try out these four sweet turkey treats from Pinterest. Use them for party favors, treats for a children’s classroom, or just to spruce up your afternoon snack.

Nutter Butter Gobblers

Peanut-shaped cookies create the body of this turkey, and all you need to make a goofy little gobbler face is some red royal icing, mini eye candies, and orange M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces. Use the icing to stick the eyes and nose to the cookie, and add a little extra to create a little wattle. Soon you’ll have your own army of goofy turkeys for any last-minute Thanksgiving potluck.

Peanut Butter Cup Turkey

If you can’t get enough peanut butter no matter the season, this chocolatey treat is perfect for you. Take a miniature peanut butter cup and attach it to the base of a larger peanut butter cup using melted chocolate chips. Once that dries, decorate the stacked cups with mini candy eyes and Reese’s Pieces for a nose and mock feathers.

Pretzel Rod Turkeys

If you’re looking for a slightly salty spin on the sweet turkey treat, turn a pretzel rod into a bird. Lay down some round chocolate cookies on wax paper to act as the base for your turkey. Dip the top half of a pretzel rod in milk chocolate, and while it’s still wet, glue it to the front of the cookie. Use more melted chocolate to attach candy corns to the cookie and affix candy eyes and orange Reese’s Pieces to the front of the pretzel to create a turkey; there  you have the perfect favor for Thanksgiving guests.
