"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.
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!
My son took these to his first bake sale at school and was the hit of the class. I wrapped the pops in clear plastic wrap, tied them with decorative ribbon and stuck the sticks into a piece of Styrofoam for an attractive display.—Linda Dyches, Round Rock, Texas
