These fun and easy turkey decorated chocolate and peanut butter rice krispie treats are perfect for Thanksgiving classroom parties or your holiday dessert table. They are no bake and easy to make!

      If you are looking for a fun Thanksgiving sweet treat that is a little bit different than the traditional pumpkin or pecan pie, look no further! These fun chocolate dipped rice crispy treats are dressed up like turkeys. They don't take any oven space and they will be popular with kids and adults alike.


     These fun treats are special at every turn.  First, they are no ordinary rice crispy treats.

     Oh no, my friends, these babies start with delicious bars that are loaded to the gills with chocolate and peanut butter.  Get the recipe for these stupendous chocolate peanut butter krispie bars and you are already off on the right foot.

      These is enough marshmallow to give you that chew and enough cereal to give you the crunch, but the chocolate and peanut butter really bring the goodness! They taste fabulous on their own, but it is super fun to dress them up for Thanksgiving.

     As if that wasn't enough, the resulting pieces of crispy treat are dunked into melted milk chocolate. You could go full immersion, but I opted to just dip the top.

     Luckily Chocoley Chocolate had just sent me a really high quality compound chocolate, Ba da bing dipping milk chocolate. I love it for many reasons, including you don't have to temper it.

     Plus it is ethically sourced and free of all the waxes and fillers some other dipping chocolate has. That makes it taste so much better!

      If you are using bar chocolate, you'll want to temper it before you coat your bars.  No matter which method you use to coat them, they are bound to be delicious.

     Once you take each dipped cereal bar out of the chocolate, you'll want to decorate it. I used colorful chocolate coated sunflower seeds for the tail feathers.

     Then a few small candy eyeballs for the eyes. A yellow and red candy coated sunflower seeds finished his face as his beak and gobbler.

      As you can see, these fun treats come together really quick and easily. They can be made several days in advance and stored at room temperature as well.

      Another cute way to do turkeys is with candy corn feathers and beaks.  I made Tom the turkey cupcakes last year, but you could do a similar design on cereal bars if you'd like.

      If you are in the cookie mood, you could do a sugar cookie dressed up with candy corn as a Turkey. Or turn mini donuts into turkeys with m&ms for another cute and easy treat!

     Now that I've decorated mummy rice crispy treats and monster cereal bars for Halloween and these for Thanksgiving, I feel like I need to do a Christmas version as well. Does anyone have any fun ideas for those?
