Thanksgiving is around the corner and if you’re like me, you usually have a little cocktail hour aka time to catch up hour before you get down to grubbing on all those delicious Thanksgiving recipes.

Here is what you’ll need to make these festive Thanksgiving treats!



  • Hershey Kisses
  • Tiny twist pretzels
  • Candy leaves/acorns
  • Candy eyes


First you preheat your oven to 170 degrees for about 15 minutes.


You then line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place pretzels on parchment paper.


Unwrap Hershey kisses one by one and place a whole kiss upside down in bottom hole of the pretzel. (If the kiss has a hard time staying up then break off tip of kiss).


Cut other Hershey kisses in little pieces and place them in the top two holes of the pretzel. Place in preheated oven for 2 minutes, just so the chocolate is softened.


Take out and immediately place three candy leaves on the top of the pretzel where the Hershey pieces melted.


Then place your eyes, nose, and wattle on. You can use a candy acorn or an orange leaf for the nose. Use a red leaf for the wattle. Make sure you work quickly before the kisses start to harden and set.


Place in refrigerator for 3-5 minutes to quickly harden and that’s it you’re done!
