We Can't Stop Laughing at These Chocolate-Covered-Strawberry Turkeys — Here's How to Make Them
When I picture a table of Thanksgiving desserts, there's usually things like apple, pecan, and pumpkin pie. Something that's usually not on my radar? Chocolate-covered strawberries. But since I'm the type of person who thinks the more desserts the better, I'm not opposed to adding them into the Thanksgiving dessert rotation, especially when they look like little turkeys! This recipe by YouTuber Awesmr Pop makes for the cutest (and most hilarious) Thanksgiving-themed dessert or snack.
While the chocolate-covered-strawberry turkeys are a pinch more tedious, they won't take nearly as long to make as pie would. Compared to traditional chocolate-dipped strawberries, this recipe requires just two extra steps. To get started, you'll need pretzel sticks, strawberries, marshmallows, and milk and white chocolate. Cut each marshmallow and pretzel stick in half, then poke the pretzels into the marshmallows. Using melted milk chocolate, make the turkey legs by glueing a marshmallow to each side of the strawberry. Let these sit in the fridge for a few minutes before dunking the full strawberry in chocolate. Fine details are everything, and the white chocolate on these turkeys make them extra special.
A mouthwatering combination of salty and sweet, these chocolate-covered-strawberry turkeys are a creative addition to the Thanksgiving table. If anything, they'll be the perfect conversation starter!
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup plus 6 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- 4 ounces strawberries (about 6 medium), stemmed and finely diced
Sift flour, cocoa, and salt into a bowl set aside. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring until smooth set aside to cool.
Put butter and 1/4 cup granulated sugar into the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Mix in yolk, vanilla, and chocolate. Reduce speed to low. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put 6 teaspoons granulated sugar into a small bowl. Form dough into 3/4-inch balls roll in sugar to coat. Space 1 inch apart on baking sheets lined with parchment. Press center of each ball with your thumb. Bake 10 minutes. Press centers again with end of a wooden spoon, making 3/4-inch indentations. Bake until slightly cracked and set, about 5 minutes more. Cool completely on racks.
Stir cream cheese and confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. Toss berries with remaining 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar in another bowl. Spoon cream cheese mixture into center of cookies top with sugared berries, dividing evenly.

Freezer-friendly chocolate strawberry cake
Feel free to freeze this chocolate strawberry cake either frosted or unfrosted for up to 2 months. I recommend freezing it unfrosted and in individual layers for best results:
- Once the cakes are cool, simply wrap each individual layer in plastic wrap & aluminum foil.
- Place the cakes in a zip-top freezer bag.
- When you’re ready to serve it, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and then let the cake come to room temperature before serving.
