Celebrate Thanksgiving with these easy, sharable treats

Thanksgiving is a time filled with family, gratitude, togetherness, and most importantly food, one of the staples of this holiday. The turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, corn, and pumpkin pies are a part of major traditional foods that coincide with this family gathering. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, the family gatherings may be very limited this year. However, fun treats and desserts could help brighten this festivity. Cute treats can be made with family members and friends and can add some positivity to the day. If the holidays are spent separate from your family this year, these treats could be dropped off at their doorstep in order to celebrate this holiday together in some small way.

A Turkey Cheese Ball is a perfect appetizer because while the turkey is roasting in the oven, people can enjoy a light bite that won’t interfere with all the goodness that is coming. This allows people to stay busy, keep conversation going, and it helps to keep all the stomachs satisfied until dinner is served. 

Ingredients needed:

  • Pre-made cheese ball from any grocery store
  • Edible candy eyes
  • Candy corn
  • Pretzels sticks
  • Crackers for dipping

Another snack perfect for Thanksgiving is a Blessing Mix. This treat is very similar to the traditional trail mix but with a Thanksgiving day twist.

Ingredients include:

  • Pretzels
  • Candy corn
  • Rice Chex Cereal
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Roasted Salted Almonds

Sugar turkey cookies are a dessert both children and adults will love baking and decorating. The cookies could also easily be dropped off at a loved one’s house as well.

Ingredients include:

Whether it be making these with your loved ones or dropping them off to family and friends, these are a great way to show others the holiday spirit. Enjoy!
