We came up with these Rice Krispies Turkey Legs idea several years ago when we made our April Fools’ Day KFC Dessert. We added “flakes” to look like fried chicken. We also made them this way to look like turkey drumsticks for Thanksgiving and they were such a hit! We have updated our photos and included easy step by step instructions.
This is also a fun treat to make for Thanksgiving class parties at school that the kids will absolutely love! You will love that these really only take just minutes to make…so easy!!
Rice Krispies Turkey Legs
- 8 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
- 6 Pretzel Rods
- 1 Bag White Candy Melts
- 1 10 oz. bag Mini Marshmallows (reserving 24)
- 1/4 cup Butter
Break your pretzel rods in half and melt your white chocolate according to the directions….
Dip the ends of the pretzel rods into the chocolate just at the tip…
Press on two mini marshmallows…
Let that set for about 5 minutes…
Dip the pretzels back into the chocolate covering almost to the other end….
Melt the remaining marshmallows and butter in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir until combined and smooth. Now add in your Rice Krispies cereal and mix until combined….
Grab a hand full of your Rice cereal treat mix and shape it into a ball. You can use gloves, butter, or spray your hands with cooking spray to prevent any sticking. Press the end of the pretzel into the ball and shape it to look like a turkey leg…
It should look like this when you are finished…
Place them onto wax paper and let them set for about 15 minutes….
These will store nicely to make ahead of time and make sure a fun display on your Thanksgiving table!
These Rice Krispies Turkey Legs are also a fun treat that the Kids can create all by themselves…they will have a blast!
