Do you have a picky eater?

I do.

And while I’ve mostly given up on trying to get her to eat something other than toaster waffles and pancakes for every meal, I’m trying to get her more involved in the kitchen in hopes she will develop an interest in foods that actually taste good.

So I’ve been spending a lot of time flipping through my favorite cookbooks (my fave for celebrations like Thanksgiving and Christmas is The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations), and while I always find tons of great ideas, it wasn’t until I was searching on Pinterest the other night that I realized how many Thanksgiving desserts for kids are out there.

Have you seen the masterpieces some women create with a little flour, sugar, and icing?!

Of course, my daughter HATES anything with sugar or chocolate in it (we’re not sure if she’s really ours?), but I know there are loads of other parents out there who have kids who won’t eat anything BUT sugar and chocolate, so you may have more luck with these recipes than I will.

1. Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups (Arts & Crackers)

2. Acorn Donut Holes (This Grandma Is Fun)

3. Reese’s Turkeys (Mom on Timeout)

4. Turkey Rice Krispie Treats (Shugary Sweets)

5. Gobble Gobble Oreo Turkeys (Cookies & Cups)

6. Pilgrim Hat Cookies (Taste of Home)

7. Pretzel Turkeys (Welcome to the Mouse House)

8. Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats (Amy’s Healthy Baking)

9. Easy Thanksgiving “Turkey” Cookies (Celebrations at Home)

10. Turkey Snack Bags (That’s What {Che} Said)
