Create a snack board for easy entertaining for Thanksgiving that your family and friends will want to gobble!
Happy Monday! This turkey snack board is an easy way to entertain family or friends over Thanksgiving, and is as fun to make as it is to eat! To begin, start with a wood board or serving tray of your choice and a pear to create your turkey.
Cut your pear in half and place it in the center of your board. To create Tom Turkey’s face, I used some cream cheese as the ‘glue’ to attach Wilton Candy Eyeballs leftover from Halloween, an almond for a beak, and a sliver of red grape as the turkey’s wattle. Slivers of cheese provide the turkey legs or you can use pretzels sticks if you prefer.
I have an assortment of fall pie punches to add pie crust leaf embellishments that I’ve used for Mini Pumpkin Pies, a Double Crust Apple Pie and a Pumpkin Cheese Ball. For the snack board, I used the punches to stamp out leaves from a variety package of Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Colby Jack and Swiss cheese.
Notes: Reserve scraps of cheese for another use like a casserole, grilled cheese, etc. For quicker assembly of your board, cut your cheese leaves up to 3 days in advance, wrapped well with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. You can find fall pie punches at kitchen stores, the baking aisle of the craft store and online.
Now the fun part begins. . . assembling your turkey’s fantail of snacks!
In addition to cheese, I used an assortment of crackers, almonds, dried apricots, red and green seedless grapes and some salami and fontina cheese rolls that I cut in half.
Add olives, cured meats, veggies, pretzels or whatever snacks your family prefers to your Thanksgiving snack board.
