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


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


  1. 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!
