Keyword: rice krispie treats
6cupsCocoa Krispies Cereal or other crispy chocolate rice cereal
1 16ouncepackage large marshmallows
1cupchopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
8 6-inchpretzel rods
Pour the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside.
Over medium heat, add the butter to a large saucepan and melt.
Add the large marshmallows to the pot and stir to combine with the butter. Continue to stir until the marshmallows have melted and are smooth.
Add the mini marshmallows to the pot and stir until they melted.
Turn off the heat.
Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir to combine.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute or until completely smooth.
Dip one end of a pretzel rod into the chocolate to coat about 1/2 inch up the pretzel. Place the pretzel rod on a baking sheet lined with parchment and "glue" two mini marshmallows to the end to form the "bone." Repeat with remaining pretzels.
Allow the chocolate to set.
Dip the marshmallow end of the pretzel rod, again, into the chocolate to coat about halfway up the pretzel rod and place on the baking sheet to set. Repeat with the remaining pretzels.
Coat your hands with cooking spray and spoon approximately 3/4 cup of the Rice Krispie mixture into your hand. Form the cereal mixture into the shape of a turkey leg and press a hole into the narrow end to fit the pretzel rod.
Inser the pretzel rod into the hole and press the cereal mixture gently to form it to the pretzel. Return the turkey leg to the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining pretzels until all the turkey legs are formed.
Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 5 days.
