Candy corn has been dear to my heart since I was teeny tiny. The story goes that I was potty trained with these little delicious candies. Perhaps that’s why I love them year after year. I fill a jar before Halloween and have it on the counter for as long as I can!

It’s kinda funny that we find this candy so good! The three colors of the candy – a broad yellow end, a tapered orange center, and a pointed white tip – mimic the appearance of kernels of corn. Corn! Well, we do…even if it was originally called chicken feed! Americans and Canadians consume about 20 million pounds a year. Whoa!

Candy Corn works for these Pumpkin Pie Turkeys too!

Easy Pretzel Rolo Turkeys

With a few simple ingredients, you can whip these little gobblers up in no time. These are an easy Thanksgiving dessert kids can help with.

  • First, preheat oven to 300 and line a baking pan with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.
  • Place pretzels with the salted side down with the double rounded end pointed toward you.
  • Now, unwrap your Rolo candies and place them in the center towards the top of the pretzel.
  • Place them in the oven until the chocolate softens but isn’t totally melted about 1 minute. It’s important to make sure they don’t get too soft!!
  • Begin decorating by placing the candy eyeballs towards the middle, slightly towards the top, of the Rolos candy. Take a Reese’s Pieces and turn it sideways and insert it below the eyes. Finally, take three pieces of candy corn and insert them along the top of the Rolos for the feathers.
  • Finally, place your little turkeys in the freezer to solidify for 5 – 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!

Tips for Making Candy Turkeys

  • These little turkeys can be made ahead, just store in an airtight container until ready to use. 
  • Make sure you watch your Rolos while in the oven to make sure they don’t melt too much. 
  • Readers say 30 seconds in the microwave will also melt the Rolo candy. Try it and let us know!
