Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s the perfect time of year for showing thankfulness, being with family, and good food — you cannot forget about all the amazing food and treats that fill your belly on Thanksgiving. For a tasty treat that is sure to please even the littlest of guests, give these Thanksgiving Turkey Pretzels a try. They are simple to make so it is the perfect way to spend those no school days with your kids, and they’ll be happy to share with family!

Thanksgiving Turkey Pretzel Treats

Pretzel Twists
Candy Corn*
Rolos Candy
Reese’s Pieces or M&Ms
Candy Eyes

*If you can’t find Candy Corn in stores, Amazon Prime has them!
Step 1: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line your favorite baking pan with parchment paper.

Step 2: Line pretzels salted side down with the double rounded end pointed towards you.

Step 3: Lay three pieces of Candy Corn on each pretzel, making a feathered looked and carefully place unwrapped Rolos in the center of each pretzel towards the bottom of the Candy Corn.

Step 4: Place them in the oven until the Rolo softens…about 1 minute.

Step 5: To make sure the chocolate adheres to the pretzel and candy, press down the Candy Eyes towards the middle top of the Rolos. For the beak, turn a Reese’s Pieces or M&M sideways and insert it just under the eyes.

Step 6: Place in fridge to solidify the chocolate and enjoy! Yum!!


My kids love helping in the kitchen, especially when it is something they get to enjoy, and candy is definitely on that list. Although my kids are young, my 4-year-old was able to help with the easy steps of laying the pretzels on the pan and helping to unwrap the Rolos. He may have helped eat some of the candy before we even placed it into the oven, kids. The best part though was sharing a delicious Fall treat together!
