Turkey Leg Treats

I created a dual-holiday treat that could work for either, Thanksgiving Day or April Fool's Day: Caramel Pear Turkey Legs!

It's just like a caramel apple, but instead of apples you use small pears. And instead of wooden sticks, you use pretzel rods. Add toasted coconut marshmallows to the tops of the pretzels, and they look just like turkey leg bones.

You can find my simple tutorial at Gobble, gobble.

Would you believe that I brainstorm a lot of my dessert ideas while I'm running? I guess it's kind of like the carrot dangling in front of me to keep me going. Except, my carrot is probably made of sugar and butter. Dipped in chocolate. And covered in caramel. :)

I love this idea. I just finished making a roasted turkey cake yesterday and while I was sculpting turkey legs out of cake ball mixture, I thought they alone would make a clever project for Thanksgiving. Your caramel pear turkey legs are so much more clever. You continually astonish me with your ideas. Running is good for you in many ways. I do most of my brainstorming while I swim, so I totally get it. Keep on runnin'. You are truly a food genius.
