  • 6 Fruit by the Foot fruit rolls
  • 9 circus peanut candies
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips, divided
  • 24 candy eyeballs
  • 6 chocolate-covered thin mints
  • 12 large sourdough pretzels
  • 36 milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped
  • 12 vanilla wafers


  1. Using kitchen scissors, cut feathers and 12 wattles from fruit rolls. Cut three circus peanuts crosswise in half. Cut 24 turkey feet from remaining circus peanuts.
  2. Reserve 12 butterscotch chips for beaks. In a microwave, melt 1/2 cup of the remaining chips; stir until smooth. Using melted chips, attach two candy eyeballs, a wattle and a beak to each chocolate-covered thin mint to make turkey heads.
  3. Place a pretzel on a waxed paper-lined microwave-safe plate. Place a chocolate kiss in each of the three holes. Microwave on high for 15-20 seconds or until melted. While still warm, arrange feathers in a fan shape over pretzel, pressing gently into melted chocolate to adhere. Repeat with remaining pretzels and kisses.
  4. Melt remaining butterscotch chips. Using melted chips, attach a vanilla wafer to each pretzel for body; attach heads. Attach circus peanut pieces for feet. Let stand until set.
