Cute Edible Apple Turkey

These are really cute turkeys made out of apples that kids can make for school or just eat as a snack. They also make adorable Holiday Table decorations. They can be made with either Fruit Loops or raisins. Variations: head can be a cut out that is glued on or a large marshmallow with raisin eyes and a candy corn stuck into it for a beak.



  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup Fruit Loops cereal or raisins (if using Fruit Loops you will need a few raisins for the neck)
  • 6-7 mini marshmallows
  • 7-11 toothpicks
  • 1 green olive
  • 2 cloves


To make the feathers: Take raisins or Fruit Loops and slide onto toothpicks about 3/4 the way down. Place a mini-marshmallow on the end. You will need 6 or 7 "feathers" depending on the size of your apple. Stick the "feathers" into the back of the apple.

To make the head: Slide raisins down toothpick and top with a green olive (head). Use cloves for eyes. If your olive has a pimiento you can pull it out the back of the olive and let it hang so that it looks like a turkey wattle.

Insert three toothpicks under the turkey so it can stand freely.

After reading the oreo turkey, I think this is just as adorable! Now we have one for dessert and one for a healthy snack!

Thanks for the idea!
