Equipment

  • microwave-safe mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Ziploc bag

Ingredients

  • 24 Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 24 mini Pretzels
  • 48 Candy eyes
  • 24 Orange Reese’s Pieces
  • Leaf sprinkles

Instructions

  • Unwrap Reese’s Cups, this helps the process to go faster and the chocolate “glue” not to harden.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in 30-second increments until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Use a spoon to transfer the melted chocolate to a zippered bag and cut the tip off for easy use (and less mess).
  • On a plate or parchment paper, start by putting some chocolate on the top of the Reese’s Cup and then attach the pretzel's narrow end onto the Reese’s.
  • Flip the Reese’s over so that the pretzel is on the bottom.
  • Put three dots of chocolate for the two eyes and nose.
  • Place 2 candy eyes and an orange Reese’s Pieces over the chocolate dots to secure in place.
  • On one side of the Reese’s Pieces, put a red leaf sprinkle to create the turkey's wattle.
  • On the Reese’s backside, put some chocolate on the pretzel and attach three leaf sprinkles (any color).
  • Let treats cool completely. Enjoy!

Notes

  • How many treats you can make from the chocolate depends on how much chocolate you use to attach each piece.
  • You can double or triple the recipe depending on how many treats you need.
