Ingredients

  • 12 oz Chocolate Almond Bark 6 blocks
  • 6 oz Almond Bark 3 blocks
  • 8 Strawberries large
  • 16 Pretzels Sticks thinnest you can find
  • 8 Mini Marshmallows cut in half

Instructions

  • Rinse and pat your Strawberries dry and set aside.
  • Break about 1/4th of the top of the pretzel sticks off...you will use the piece that is about 3/4ths length because otherwise, the pretzel sticks are TOO LONG.
  • Cut your mini marshmallows in half, long ways. There will be two insides of the marshmallows that are sticky.
  • Stick the cut side of the marshmallow to the top pretzel stick (make sure you use the broken end so the feat that stick out are rounded and not jagged)
  • Place your chocolate almond bark into a deep, microwave safe bowl.
  • Heat for 30 seconds, then stir and continue heating for 15 seconds each time, stirring in between until your chocolate is fully melted.
  • Dip the top of the pretzel stick with the marshmallow lightly into the melted chocolate bark then stick the pretzel/marshmallow leg to the right side of your strawberry and hold it there for about 30 second until it adheres. Repeat with the left side!
  • Place your strawberry with legs attached on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper, then repeat the process with all your strawberries. (each will cook and harden as you continue to work)
  • Once the strawberry turkey legs are set, poke a fork into the top of the strawberry then dip the whole strawberry, up to the stem in chocolate, shake off excess and place back on parchment paper.
  • Repeat this for all your strawberry turkeys, then place your baking sheet into the fridge for 10 minutes to harden the chocolate.
  • While those are cooling, melt your white almond bark the same way as before.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the fridge.
  • Pick up the strawberries by the stem and lightly dip the bottoms of each leg into the white chocolate park to make the turkey's feet.
  • Return each one to the baking sheet and then back to the fridge until set.

Notes

  • You can use milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips instead of almond bark if you prefer
  • Make sure to melt and stir the chocolate if it gets cool as you are working...but don't overheat it or it will begin to clump and harden
  • If you prefer not to have the stems, feel free to cut them off before beginning!
  • There are lots of brands on pretzel sticks but I found that the cheap Walmart brand pretzel sticks worked best! You want these to be thin so they are not too heavy to attach.
