  • 1 package chocolate donuts
  • 3 cups caramel popcorn
  • 2 cups red grapes
  • 2 cups cheez its or cheddar cheese cubes
  • 1 bag mini pretzels
  • 10 mini marshmallows
  • 2 raspberries
  • 1 slice yellow cheese, cut into a triangle
  • 4 Nutella breadsticks
  • 5 clementines or tangerines, peeled
  • 5 sour punch bites
  • candy pumpkins
  • candy corn
  • red, orange, yellow, brown m&ms


  • On a rectangular wooden board, place 2 small bowls on opposite corners.
  • Arrange the "feathers" first in a large U shape, starting with the donuts and working your way to the grapes. Arrange the pretzels as the turkey's body and use the Cheez-Its for the wings.
  • Arrange 5 mini marshmallows in a circle for each eye. Place a brown m&m inside the circle for the pupil. Add the triangle piece of cheese for the nose and the 2 raspberries for the wattle. Dip 4 breadsticks into the Nutella and place securely at the bottom of the pretzel body.
  • Arrange the clementines on the open corners of the board. Insert a sour punch bite into each to create a stem. Fill in any gaps with candy pumpkins.
  • Fill the bowls with candy corn and m&ms.
