A sweet (literally) little food craft to keep the kids busy until dinner on Thanksgiving with these DIY thanksgiving turkey macarons!
Let’s be real. It wouldn’t be a holiday around here without a macaron craft. So obviously, these DIY Thanksgiving Turkey Macarons were a no-brainer!
They’d also be pretty perfect for keeping the little ones entertained while the adults handle the real thing. But I’m totally not trying to get your kids sugared up before dinner or anything.
Do you all have any clever traditions or tactics for keeping the littles entertained on Thanksgiving?
Ingredients to Make DIY Thanksgiving Turkey Macarons
Macarons (store-bought or homemade)
Chocolate wafers melted
Thick cake frosting
Chocolate kisses or snowball melty candies
Sprinkles of white pearls
Steps in Making DIY Thanksgiving Turkey Macarons
Step 1 — Fill the macarons with melting chocolate wafers.
Step 2 — Wrap the macaron cookie in enough wafers to reach halfway.
Step 3 — Using a dab of frosting, “glue” the Snowball Melty on the cookie to make it look like a turkey nose.
Step 4 — To make the eyes, use a dab of frosting to “glue” two white pearl sprinkles together. Set it aside for a few minutes to harden.
After the frosting has been set, display the turkeys upright with these pumpkin place cards or on the table for guests and children to enjoy!
