Chocolate Pretzel Turkeys Recipe

Chocolate Pretzel Turkeys

Chocolate covered Oreos or Thin Mints (do you still have a secret stash?)
Chocolate covered pretzels
Candy corn
Chocolate chips
Black and white decorating gel

1. Put a handful of chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave them in 30 second increments until they are fully melted. Transfer into a ziploc bag.
2. Place 3 chocolate covered pretzels together to make the tail feathers of the turkey.
3. Cut a small hole in the corner of the ziploc and squeeze a little bit onto the pretzels like glue.
4. Place a chocolate covered Oreo on the top and gently press down.
5. Use the white and black decorating gel to create little eye balls on the Oreo.
6. Put a small dot of chocolate in between the eyes and attach a candy corn for the nose.
7. Let cool for 10 minutes until the chocolate glue hardens.
