  • Cover  baking sheets with parchment. Use about 1/2 tsp. melted chocolate to attach 2 pretzels to back of each wafer; place, pretzel side up, on prepared baking sheet.
  • Let  stand 20 min. or until chocolate is firm.
  • Dip  portion of each pretzel twist extending past top of wafer in remaining white chocolate; tap lightly to let excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Return, wafer side up, to baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles. Let stand 20 min. or until chocolate is firm.

Recipe Tips

Make it Your OwnYou can decorate these fun treats however you like with ingredients you have on hand. Don't have miniature pretzel twists for the feathers? Use small pretzel sticks, candy corn pieces, pecan halves or Mini NILLA Wafers. Faces can be made with any small candies or decorating icings. For added fun, let each family member decorate their own turkey.

SubstituteSubstitute melted white candy coating wafers or ready-to-spread frosting for the melted white chocolate. If using frosting, spoon frosting into microwaveable bowl and microwave just until slightly warmed before using as directed.

Serving SuggestionPlace turkeys on tops of frosted cupcakes before serving.
