I’ve done cookie turkeys before, but thought maybe I should try something that was at least kind of appropriate for consuming at 6 in the morning. What’s more breakfast-y than cold cereal? So I attempted to make some Turkey Pop Treats.
First, although it was difficult to mold the rice krispy mixture into a ball, I managed. However, it was impossible for me to figure out how to get the candy corn to stand upright. When I tried pushing it into the ball, the whole thing would fall apart. And then the rice krispy balls wouldn’t stay at the top of the stick, but would slide on down to the opposite end. So, I went with Plan B and just dipped the balls in chocolate and sprinkles. I’m sure they’ll be quite edible.
You’d think this would be simple, but the grocery store bakery didn’t have what I wanted. Their only donut holes were raspberry-filled. I did find a box of plain glazed donut holes over in the “preserved” donuts section, but I don’t particularly like how they taste. I couldn’t decide between the two, so ended up buying both.

Now I know that if I ever do it again, I’ll go with the smaller, non-jelly-filled ones, even if they’re not quite as delicious. The small ones look more like acorns, and presentation tops taste, at least for today.
So, I hope this was as educational for you as it was for me. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, with or without Pinterest’s help!
