Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about all the yummy treats we can make for our little ones. Parents are always on the lookout for creative ways to get their children excited about the holiday and what better way than to make some tasty Thanksgiving-inspired treats? From adorable turkey cup cakes to chocolate cornucopias filled with sweets, there’s no shortage of delicious and fun treats to be made. In this blog post, we’ll share some of our favorite recipes and ideas for making Thanksgiving treats for kids that they will love.

Turkey Cupcakes

These easy-to-make cupcakes are the perfect dessert for your little ones this Thanksgiving. To make them, bake your favorite flavor of cupcakes and frost them with chocolate frosting. Then, place a Nutter Butter cookie on top of the cupcake to act as the turkey’s head. Use candy corn for the beak and feet, and M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces for the eyes. These cupcakes are not only delicious but also fun to make with your children.

Chocolate Pretzel Turkeys

Another creative way to make a turkey-themed treat for your kids is chocolate pretzel turkeys. This treat is also simple to make and only requires a few ingredients. All you need are chocolate-covered pretzels, candy corn, Reese’s Pieces, and frosting. Use the frosting to attach the candy corn to the pretzel to make the tail feathers, and then use another piece of candy corn attached to the Reese’s Pieces to make the beak. Your kids will love to help make these and they will be a hit at any Thanksgiving gathering.

Fruit Kabobs

If you are looking for a healthier option this Thanksgiving, fruit kabobs are a perfect choice. This is a quick and easy treat to make and can be customized with your children’s favorite fruits. Cut up the fruit into bite-sized pieces and skewer them onto wooden skewers. You can add a festive touch by cutting the fruit into Thanksgiving shapes, such as pumpkins or leaves. Serve with a side of whipped cream or yogurt for dipping and your kids will love this fun and healthy treat.

Chocolate Cornucopias

Chocolate cornucopias are a classic Thanksgiving treat that kids always love. To make them, melt chocolate and pipe it onto a mold made of paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let the chocolate harden and then remove the mold. Fill the chocolate cornucopias with your child’s favorite sweets, such as candy corn, M&M’s, or Reese’s Pieces. These treats are not only delicious, but also make a beautiful centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table.

Apple Pie Bites

Apple pie bites are a perfect miniaturized version of a traditional Thanksgiving dessert. To make them, cut up apple slices and toss them in a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and flour. Press the apple slices into a premade pie crust and bake for 12-15 minutes. These mini pies are not only delicious but also a fun and easy-to-make treat that your little ones can help you with.
