"For colorful and more flavorful Rice Krispies treats, I add 2 or 3 teaspoons of cherry or strawberry gelatin powder to the marshmallow mixture before adding the cereal," says Brenda Sheets of Landis, North Carolina.
These patriotic pops are a hit at our annual Fourth of July get-together. Serve them as an after-picnic dessert. Or slip them into cellophane bags, tie on ribbons and give them as favors.—Colleen Sturma, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TURKEY at Thanksgiving is a timeless tradition. But you can give your holiday meal a novel twist with these birds of a different feather.
The holiday treats are cute, sweet and made from all kinds of goodies youngsters love to nibble on.
"The kids and I had a ball making these tasty turkeys for Thanksgiving one year," shares Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.
"They loved forming the turkey bodies from the gooey cereal mixture and twisting the sandwich cookies apart. "But using chocolate frosting to "glue" on the candy corn was their favorite part."
This recipe makes a big batch of tempting turkeys, so there are plenty for snacking and sharing.
These festive fall treats also would make fun favors at each place setting on your Thanksgiving table—if your family doesn't gobble them up first!
