Calling all Reese’s lovers! Look no further for the perfect Thanksgiving treat with these completely adorable Reese’s Turkeys!
Oh it has been FAR too long since I’ve done a post with Reese’s! It seems that every recipe I make around here that involves Reese’s gets consumed faster than I can take pictures It’s hard work being a food blogger!
So you all know I love any and everything to do with Reese’s – they’re kind of like my favorite thing, EVER. Cookies, bars, cheesecake, trifles, bread…I love it all! Well these turkeys are one of my favorite ways to enjoy three different types of Reese’s in one totally adorable treat!
You may have noticed that I used Reese’s Dark Miniatures for the head of the turkey. Two reasons for this. One – I like the contrast in color from the head to the body. It’s subtle, but it’s there. Two – the Dark Miniatures tend to peel nicely from their wrapping without leaving little bits of chocolate behind.
Now don’t get me wrong, one of my favorite things about eating a Reese’s is licking the sweet remains from the wrapper. But for these little guys, I want the candy to be completely intact and the Dark Miniatures work best for that.
