Apple Dippin’ Turkey-Shaped Appetizer

It’s almost Thanksgiving and I’ve come up with a turkey-shaped appetizer for all your guests to snack on before dinner is served. I’ve partnered with Marzetti® for the holidays to share some yummy apple dippin’ fun and I’m using some Old Fashioned Caramel Dip for the center of our display. I chose the light brand, keeping things a little on the healthier side for Thanksgiving. We’ll need all the help we can get ;)

Turkey Apple Plate Supplies

Ingredients:

  • apples – I plan for one apple per person, maybe more if you have a lot of snackers
  • Marzetti Light Caramel Dip
  • apple slicer – optional, but oh so fabulous
  • platter
  • toothpicks – preferably the fancy kind, they make for great turkey toes!

Method:

1. Slice up your apples. I like to have all sorts of colors to make for a bright and colorful platter. Also, because apples tend to brown quickly, I suggest you slice them up right before you’re going to eat them.

2. Place your dip near the bottom center of your platter. Arrange your apples in a curved formation surrounding the dip, creating feathers like a turkey.

3. Add your toothpicks at the bottom of your dip, even under the container to make for cute turkey feet.

Now it’s ready for guests to munch on for Thanksgiving.
