  • Total Time
    Prep: 2 hours + standing
  • Makes
    1 dozen


  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
