Thanksgiving Turkeys





Ya, pretend it's still Thanksgiving. Without overeating again. Without having to rush to finish Christmas shopping. Just for a minute let's take a glimpse back to my November.

We made these little chocolate covered rice krispie turkeys. I didn't really like plain old rice krispie treats but covered in chocolate makes me want to gobble them up. OH, and I did!

I made these twice. Once with my daughters preschool and then again with my nieces. I think they are easier to eat when they are flat but look more like a turkey in the ball form.

The carnage.

I made two batches of rice krispies, spread thin onto one cookie sheet. Enough to make at least 10 turkeys. Cut them out with a round biscuit cutter. Then I dipped them in the chocolate. I used melting chips flavored like chocolate. Much easier than using a double boiler or trying melt chocolate chips in the microwave. Once they're covered, stick them on wax paper or greased plate and pop them in the freezer. They'll dry in 1 minute and then they are ready to eat. I wouldn't suggest storing them in the freezer because they get really hard. Enjoy!
