Your kids are going to love these sweet Cocoa Krispies Treat Turkeys. They are super easy to make for Thanksgiving.
When I saw boxes of the new Cocoa Krispies Treats in the store this week, I couldn't resist throwing some into my cart so I could make these Cocoa Krispie Turkeys.
I had been working on an easier version of the Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Treat Turkey Pops that I had made a few years ago and hadn't come up with exactly what I wanted.
My original cereal treat turkeys were so cute, but they required a dip in chocolate and candy clay decorations. They are my most popular Thanksgiving treat, but they aren't super easy for kids to make.
So, I used those Cocoa Krispies Treats to make the new quick and easy version of these Thanksgiving treats.
If you are looking to use homemade Rice Krispie Treats, head on over to my new website, HowToMakeCerealTreats.com. You can also check out how we taste tested 20 versions of the Rice Krispie Treat recipe to come up with the absolute BEST Rice Krispie Treat Recipe.
Just follow the recipe attached and use the Cocoa Krispies instead of the original crisp rice cereal.
Each marshmallow cereal bar is decorated with candy eyes, orange slice beaks, jelly bean waddles, and candy corn feathers. Watch the video to see how quickly you can put them together.
Yep, they are that easy.
You don't even need to use any chocolate or frosting to attach the candy decorations. They just stick.

LOVE!! The colors are so vibrant and the simplicity really is awesome. I wondered how you attached the candy corns..yay, just stick 'em in! And the candy naturally sticking to the cocoa treat is just "the icing on the cake"!
I was going to use chocolate, but when the candies just stuck, I figured why bother. If you are going to move them around a lot, you may want to add some melted chocolate "glue" but otherwise they are fine without.
Another reason to make a turkey, so many cute designs you have come up with! I remember using an oreo with candy corn and a cordial cherry!
There are so many cute turkey treats and I love how easier these are to make. Using a cordial cherry is a great idea.
Doesn't get much easier than this, but leave it to you to figure out how to make a Cocoa Rice Krispy Treat into a cute turkey.
