Chocolate Wafer Turkeys

With all the holiday talk around here, I felt like Thanksgiving was feeling left out. I don’t want to skip straight from Halloween to Christmas so I decided we needed some chocolate wafer turkeys to balance things out.

These cute little no bake treats are easy and quick to make and a great use for leftover candy corn.

Or if you are like me, they are a great excuse to buy more candy corn because you ate it all. *ahem*

These chocolate wafter turkeys would make a great kids’ activity on Thanksgiving day. Just melt the chocolate and let them do the rest!

These would be so adorable to serve with our mini pumpkin gnome treats.

Ingredients

Here’s what you will need to make this cute candy treat.

Add these little guys to your dessert table next to some pumpkin magic cake or candy corn fudge.

Turkey Wafer ingredients in bowls
  • Chocolate dipped wafer cookies – These are Leclerc Celebration Wafers. If you can’t find those, Kit-Kats will also work or you can dip your own sugar wafers like we did with our Wordle cookies.
  • Chocolate chips – melted
  • Candy corn – to create the cute turkey feathers
  • Yellow M&Ms candy – for the beak
  • Candy eyes – to complete the look

How to Make Them

Open the wafers and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

In a small microwave safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips at 15 second intervals, stirring between, until completely melted.

Use the chocolate to “glue” the turkey features into place on the wafer cookie.

Place a dab of chocolate towards the bottom for the nose, two small dabs for eyes and one large dot of chocolate at the top to affix the candy corn, forming feathers.
