Cute Reese's recipes for Thanksgiving

Mmmm, Reese’s cups. Chocolate and peanut butter perfection! And a cute shape for making a turkey’s head, as it turns out. ; ) You can make all sorts of adorable Thanksgiving desserts and treats with both Reese’s cups and Reese’s pieces, which oh-so-conveniently come in a festive fall color palette of orange, yellow, and brown. Here are a few of my favorite Reese’s recipes for Thanksgiving!

1. Reese’s turkeys via Inside BruCrew Life – made with mini and full size Reese’s cups. These are the cutest thing ever!

2. Pilgrim hat cookies via The Stir – so easy to make, it’s silly!

3. Indian corn cakes made with Reese’s Pieces via Taste of Home – yellow cake frosted with white icing and decorated with Reese’s pieces. Real dried corn husks are the finishing touch.

4. Thanksgiving turkey Rice Krispie treats via The Celebration Shoppe – the feathers are made from Starbursts!

5. Reese’s brownie bite turkeys via Inside BruCrew Life – the body is a brownie, the wings and tail feathers are chocolate covered pretzels, and the head is a Reese’s cup. Deelish!

6. Reese’s Pieces turkey treats via Clean and Scentsible – ok, so this isn’t really a recipe, but it’s such a fun craft for kids! It would be a great place setting and take-home gift on Thanksgiving, too.

    I made the Reese's turkeys last year with my granddaughter. They were easy and fun to make. We did an extra step and melted some chocolate candy melts, put dabs on wax paper and placed each turkey on a dab of candy melt and let them set. This kept them from rolling when we put them on the Thanksgiving table at each place setting.
