These Are the Cutest Thanksgiving Desserts That Your Guests Will Flip Over

Turkey Pops are the new star of your holiday spread.

If you haven’t blocked the memory out by now, you may recall that last year, Thanksgiving was kinda ruined.

Cases of Covid started to spike again in the U.S., which canceled many a fun Friendsgiving and family gathering. Well, not this year!

We’re celebrating in full force—planning to go all out with our dinner and dessert spreads to feast with as many family and friends as possible. And it feels so right.

The only thing standing in your way of a great time are those sneaky things known as time (you don’t have much) and money (turns out, inflation is the worst). Enter some really easy Thanksgiving recipes that are quick and easy to make, like these Krimpet Turkey Pops, courtesy of Tastykake.

Not only will these Turkey Pops be the cutest dessert to grace your holiday table, but your fellow guests will flip out once they find out that these are “halfway homemade” creations featuring Tastykake’s Butterscotch Krimpets (sponge cakes with butterscotch icing) covered in melted chocolate and popped onto cake pop sticks. They’re too easy to whip up, and the results are almost too adorable to eat… almost.
