The front of the turkey is the side of the pretzel that has the two rounded ends. Place a Rolo or Milk Dud in the center of each pretzel. Either will work, it just takes a little longer for Milk Duds to soften in the oven.


Place baking sheet in the oven. Bake pretzels with Rolos for 1 minute or pretzels with Milk Duds for 3 minutes. Remove from oven.

Now it’s time to decorate the turkeys. To each softened Rolo or Milk Dud, add two candy eyes for eyes and a Reese’s Pieces (turned lengthwise) for the nose. Place three candy corns along the back for the tail.


Let sit for a few minutes to harden. Placing them in the refrigerator will help them harden faster. Store in an airtight container.


That’s it! Have fun, and enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving!
