Thanksgiving Snack: Apple Turkeys

Looking for a delicious Thanksgiving snack that is a little less labor-intensive than an entire feast? Kids are sure to gobble up these apple turkeys!


Caution: Check to see if any children have allergies to peanut butter. If they do, use marshmallow cream instead. And don’t serve this snack to children 3 and under.

You’ll Need:

  • one apple per child,
  • peanut butter,
  • honey,
  • peanuts,
  • and chocolate bon-bons

Give each child an apple. Help children core the apple. Then have them mix together peanut butter and honey.

Kids can fill their apple with the peanut butter mixture, leaving a circle of peanut butter on the top. Have children use peanuts to create tail feathers around one half of the turkey. Then have children add a chocolate bon-bon for the turkey’s head, and enjoy eating their snack.

    Do you have a picture of the Apple Turkey Thanksgiving snack you could send me, please? I teach children with disabilities and the visual would be of great help to them.

      Hi Deborah! Unfortunately, we don’t have a photo. However, one recommendation is to build an example ahead of time for your students to view!
