5 Fun Thanksgiving Foods

Cinnaman Roll Turkeys Ingredients 1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing,10 slices bacon, 5 candy corns, 5 red mini candy-coated chocolate candies, 10 candy eyeballs, 15 mini pretzel sticks, cut in half Steps Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Set icing aside. Separate dough into 5 rolls; place about 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Unroll each roll about 1 inch; tuck dough into roll to create neck of turkey. Bake 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel-lined plate. Cut bacon slices in half. Tuck 4 halves of bacon into back of each cinnamon roll so they stick up and look like tail feathers. Drizzle tops of rolls with icing. Decorate turkeys with candy eyeballs, candy corn and candy-coated chocolate candies. Before serving, place halved pretzel sticks underneath each turkey to resemble turkey’s feet.

Crescent Roll Cornucopias With Vegetables and Dip Ingredients 1 package of crescent dough makes about 8-10 cornucopia Refrigerated Crescent Recipe Creations – A Roll of Seamless Dough (if you can’t find this, just grab some original refrigerated crescent dough) Foil Vegetables, such as carrot sticks, celery sticks, cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, colored peppers, etc. Cheese bricks, such as cheddar, colby-jack, etc. Sour Cream – 16 oz. Ranch Dry Mix Packet Steps Unroll the dough, and along the long side of the rectangle, slice it in about 1/2 in. long strips Shape foil into a V shape (about 4 inches long, and about 1/2 inch wide at the point, and 2 inches wide at the top) – Cut a square of foil, and start by pushing your fingers into the center of the square, fold the foil up and around your hand. Continue to shape it until you get your desired size *If you are using regular crescent dough, then unroll, and seal the seams so it becomes 1 big sheet of dough, before slicing into strips Starting at the bottom of your V, start wrapping a strip around the foil overlapping each time by a little bit, and pressing to seal where needed Pull the tip up a little for a curved shape Bake according to the package directions, or until the dough is turning nice and golden in color – about 10 minutes Let cool Now…here’s a trick I learned to getting the foil out – squeeze the foil together so it’s a little smaller at the top, and while holding onto the crescent roll, gently twist the foil back and forth until it loosens from the sides and pull it out You can store the crescent rolls in an air-tight container for a couple of days before filling them when you are ready, you can use miniature cookie cutters – fall shapes , to cut cheese, peppers, and anything else you think might work! Dry any vegetables that are a little moist on paper towel Fill your cornucopia with prepared vegetables Mix the sour cream and ranch packet in a small bowl

Chocolate Covered Pretzels in Turkey Jar

Ingredients Large pretzel sticks, Dark Chocolate, Fall Colored Sprinkles Dip the pretzels in dark chocolate and covered them in bright fall colored sprinkles to mimic a turkey’s tail feathers. While those are drying, you can add some googly eyes and a felt beak to a glass jar with a glue gun. I also added an orange heart to the bottom of the jar for his feet. Supplies needed for this Turkey Jar: orange and red felt, Scissors, 23 mm googly eyes, glue gun, glue sticks, 5.6 x 4.8 inch round glass jar (found in floral department) How to Make a Turkey Jar: Cut the orange felt into a 4 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch square. Fold it in half and cut a heart out of it for the feet. Cut another 1 inch by 1 inch square out of the orange felt. Use this to cut a triangle for the beak. Cut the red felt into a 1 inch by 2 inch rectangle. Cut a “j” shape out of this for the wattle. Use the glue gun to attach the heart to the bottom of the jar. Dot glue on the front of the jar where you want the eyes. Place the eyes on the warm glue. Place another line of glue below the eyes and attach the beak and wattle. What chocolate should I use to fill my Turkey Jar? You can use any chocolate that you like. Just make sure it is small enough that you can push the pretzels into the candy easily. The chocolate candy gives the turkey his “body” and holds the chocolate covered pretzels in place. Here are a few ideas that you could fill the jar with: brown M&M’s, chocolate covered coffee beans, chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered nuts, brown sprinkles

Thanksgiving Turkey Peppers with Hummus Steps Step 1) We started with beautiful, ripe, vibrant peppers. Step 2) We cut off the stem, and cut a little “head” out of one of the peppers. Step 3) We sliced a carrot for the beak. Step 4: We got our little Wilton candied Eyeballs (I’ve literally had one bag that has lasted over a year! The bag was only a couple of bucks by the cake supplies in crafts). Step 5) Sliced the peppers into strips. Step 6) Secured beak with a toothpick, glued eyes on with hummus. Filled pepper with hummus and pepper feathers.
