Thanksgiving Treats


Walking into any store this time of year could make anyone believe Christmas is only days away. In reality, though, we still have Thanksgiving to look forward to. Instead of jumping the gun on Christmas preparations, take these next weeks to show your friends and family how thankful you are for them in a language all Mercy girls understand: food.
Candy Cornucopia
A new twist on a Thanksgiving staple, these candy-filled waffle cone cornucopias are sure to please. Simply wet the end of the waffle cone and microwave for approximately 20 seconds to soften. Bend the end up to give the shape of a traditional cornucopia. Fill the open end with your favorite candy and secure with cellophane and a ribbon.
Turkey Treats
To make adorable and delicious turkey shaped deserts, attach two Oreo cookies to a peanut butter cup with frosting. Add a round chocolate for a head and candy corn for feathers. For an extra touch, try piping a face and feet with frosting.
Pilgrim Peanut Butter Cookies
These pilgrim hat cookies look great and are easy to make. Flip a chocolate-coated cookie upside down and attach a peanut butter cup to the center with frosting. Pipe a small yellow square of frosting onto the peanut butter cup to create the iconic pilgrim hat.
No matter which dessert you choose to make, add a finishing touch to your Thanksgiving treats with a handwritten note detailing why you’re thankful for the recipient. Place the dessert in a clear cellophane bag and secure the tag with a festive ribbon.
