You can’t go wrong with these easy No Bake Chocolate Covered Strawberry Turkeys for Thanksgiving or Christmas! Simple and cute, they’re a hit every time.
Honestly, where did November go?!
We swear that we just blinked for a second, and now it’s Thanksgiving!
Don’t get us wrong.
We love a good excuse to stuff ourselves on turkey, dressing, and pie as much as the next person.
But we’re just a little astonished (and way, way underprepared).
Luckily, we have a token last-minute Thanksgiving recipe or two.
And one of them happens to involve snacking on No-Bake Chocolate Covered Strawberry Turkeys.
Would you really expect any less from us?!?
Ingredients and Materials Needed to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Turkeys
Fudge stripe cookies — Cut into halves.
White royal icing — Optional
How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Turkeys
Step 1 – Cut the tops off of the strawberries.
Making sure that you cut the “back” flat so that the tail stands upright.
Step 2 – Dip and cover the strawberries in the melting chocolate and place them on wax paper.
Step 3 – Once the chocolate is almost dry (but still sticky), press half of a fudge stripe cookie onto the back on the strawberries to make the feathers.
If you have any excess chocolate on the side of the turkeys, use a butter knife to cut it off.
Step 4 – Then, press a candy corn on the tip of the chocolate covered strawberry to make the beaks.
Step 5 – You can put eyes on them with royal icing.
But we like to keep it simple, especially since they never last long.
