  • 8 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 6 Pretzel Rods
  • 1 bag white chocolate candy melts
  • 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows reserve 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 melted chocolate just at the tip. Press on two mini marshmallows and let that set for 5 minutes until the chocolate is hardened back up.
  • 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 the rice krispie mixture to look like a turkey leg.
  • Place them onto wax paper and let them set for about 15 minutes.
