Here’s How You Can Make Chocolate Turkeys Out of Strawberries For The Cutest Thanksgiving Dessert

Forget pumpkin pie and ditch the apple strudels because this Thanksgiving we’re introducing chocolate covered strawberry turkeys that will surely win over mom and impress Grandma at the dinner table!

Considering the main course on Thanksgiving day typically includes indulging in our favorite comfort foods, this creative Thanksgiving dessert will make you want to skip the main meal and go straight to dessert!

Thanks to TikToker at @_ellagrace12, you can now turn your strawberries into chocolate turkeys like turning lemon into lemonade.

Starting with a handful of strawberries, grab a few from the fridge because the red fruit will act as the body of your turkeys.

Snag a few mini marshmallows and pretzel sticks from the pantry too.

Poke the pretzel sticks through the marshmallow just until you reach the middle; then, stick on the legs with melted chocolate on either side of the strawberry.

Coat the entire strawberry with turkey legs and all in a chocolate dip and carefully place on a skewer to dry.

Once the chocolate has hardened like a shell, your chocolate covered strawberry turkeys are ready to be served and presented on a white platter after everyone has stuffed their faces with meat and cornbread; Bon Appétit!
