Ok, guys I have the easiest and cutest treat to share with you. You just have to make one for your Thanksgiving Day tables this year!!!
Yes, I’m sure you are already on top of things and have your turkey day menus already planned and ready to go. But trust me, you need to add this fun turkey craft to your plans.
Ok, maybe add two things to your plans because these Chocolate Fudge Turkeys would be so cute on the table too!
Chocolate covered pretzels are one of my favorite treats to make for parties. Sweet and salty is totally my jam. I just can’t resist the mix of the salt with the chocolate.
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
- 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
Easy, peasy and cutesy squeezey! Your Thanksgiving day table totally needs one of these as a center piece.
