Chocolate Caramel Turkey Legs

Mention turkey legs made of pretzels and chocolate, and the kids come running. Let them help by unwrapping caramels for this easy, no-bake treat. —Amy Lents, Grand Forks, North Dakota
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    20 servings


  • 40 caramels
  • 20 honey wheat braided pretzel twists
  • 3 ounces milk chocolate, melted


  • Microwave caramels on high until softened, 10-15 seconds. Mold two softened caramels around the lower half of each braided pretzel to resemble a turkey leg. Dip in melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container 1-2 weeks.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • You can adjust the look of your legs by trimming the pretzels down a tad if they look long.
  • Feel free to use dark chocolate if that's what floats your boat!

      For those in my family that can't eat caramel, I make some with a peanut butter ball type covering before the chocolate. Everyone loves both - I think the adults even more than the kids!

      These were fun to make and came out great! Everyone loved the sweet/salty taste. Perfect for Thanksgiving and a big hit!

      This was the very first thing I tried when I received my magazine this month. Delicious and fun. Nuff said!
