    Title: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Turkeys
    Categories: Fruits, Chocolate, Holiday
    Yield: 6 servings

    12 Fresh strawberries
    1 1/2 c Milk chocolate chips
    2 ts Coconut oil; divided
    12 Pretzel sticks (rods)
    24 Miniature marshmallows
    1/4 c White chocolate chips

    Waxed paper
    Mini spatula.
    Wooden skewers

    To make the legs of the turkey, you'll need two basic
    ingredients: mini marshmallows and pretzel sticks. Start
    by snapping a pretzel stick in half, then slide a
    marshmallow onto the top of the pretzel to form the thigh.
    The marshmallows are already sticky so they adhere easily
    to the pretzel on their own. Repeat this process until
    you have 24 legs.

    Combine the milk chocolate chips and 1 tsp coconut oil
    in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power
    until melted, stirring in between so all of the chips
    melt evenly.

    Dip one half of each marshmallow in chocolate, then
    stick it to either side of the strawberry. Hold for a
    few seconds until the leg stays in place on its own,
    then transfer to a waxed paper-lined sheet tray to set

    Test Kitchen Tip: This step works best on a cold
    strawberry straight from the fridge; the colder the
    strawberry, the faster the chocolate will set.

    Stick a wooden dowel or toothpick into the top of each
    assembled strawberry, then dip entirely in chocolate,
    turning a few times to ensure its completely coated. Let
    the excess drip off, then return it to the waxed paper
    to harden.

    Combine the white chocolate chips and remaining coconut
    oil; melt in the microwave until smooth. Once the dipped
    strawberries are hard to the touch, dip the ends of both
    turkey legs in the white chocolate and let set. This adds
    that extra finishing touch to take these turkeys over the
    top on cuteness.
