Rice Krispie Turkey Legs Recipe

Rice Krispie Treat Turkey Legs Recipe

It’s almost Turkey Day! While everyone is busy preparing the usual Thanksgiving holiday staples like stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, pumpkin pie and of course pondering how best to cook the turkey, there are other alternatives as well.

Rice krispie turkey legs are a great turkey alternative or a fun way to celebrate turkey day with kids. These turkey legs are fun to make and assemble and they also taste delicious.


  • 8 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 6 Pretzel Rods
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1 Bag White Candy Melts
  • 1  bag of mini marshmallows


  • Pour the white candy melts into a small bowl and microwave them for about 45 seconds or until they are completely melted. Then remove the bowl and set it aside. Break the pretzel rods in half as evenly as you can.
  • Carefully dip one end of the pretzel rod into the white chocolate. Then carefully take two mini marshmallows and stick them on the end of the rod into the white chocolate. This will help the turkey leg resemble the bone. Repeat for all the pretzel rods, and then let them sit for five minutes to stabilize.
  • Next, carefully dip the pretzel rod back into the white chocolate, until almost the entire rod is covered completely. Make sure the pretzel rod has a good, thick coating and then place it on a baking sheet to rest.
  • 4. Take the remaining marshmallows and place them in a large bowl. Add in the butter and then place the bowl in the microwave for one minute. Remove the bowl and stir the butter and marshmallow mixture together until it’s completely smooth.

    5. Then add on all the rice krispies to the bowl, mixing again until all of the ingredients are combined and the consistency should be rather sticky.

    6. Grab a handful of rice krispies from the bowl and shape them into a ball with your hands. Then place the non-chocolate covered part of the pretzel rod into the rice krispie ball. Finally, use your hands to shape the rice krispie into a more oval shape on the prezel rod to resemble a turkey leg. It should cover the pretzel rod so only the white chocolate is showing.
