1. Turkey Treats

Better Homes & Gardens show you how to use a chocolate kiss, a cracker and candy corn to make a turkey - this is a great project for kids to do themselves

2. Turkey Cake Pops

3. Handprint Turkey Pumpkin Pie

Family Fun tells how to make a handprint turkey out of crust for the perfect addition to a pumpkin pie.

4. Handprint Turkey Cookies

Taste of Home has the recipe for these amazing handprint turkey cookies. Another great one to do with kids.

5. Turkey cupcakes

Cupcakes Take The Cake has collected so many turkey cupcake ideas, it's hard to pick a favorite.The decoration options are endless, so pick one that uses ingredients your family likes, from sliced almonds for tail feathers to red licorice for tiny waddles. There's even a Nutter Butter turkey.

6. Turkey cakes

I just love these kitschy creations, though I know not everyone shares my enthusiasm.

What's your favorite Thanksgiving dessert? Do you think the turkey cake is more "ew!" than cool?
