Festive Turkey Caramel Apple Tray

Fall is the perfect time for get-togethers and soon the season ends with a celebration of gratefulness. Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. If you’re having a crowd over before dinner, offer some appetizers that are not only tasty but also a little bit nutritious. You may have seen versions of this tray around the internet. Today I’m discussing a Turkey Caramel Apple Tray. Food art in the shape of a turkey. This is the perfect fall tidbit before the big meal. Slice apples of your choice and arrange them in a half circle at the top of a large plate or tray. Place a round bowl or container of dip at the bottom with 2 chocolate chips and a candy corn placed on it. The chips are eyes and the candy corn is his beak. You now have a cute turkey, and if you use 2 different types of apples, the “feathers” will vary. I suggest Granny Smith, Fuji, or Honeycrisp.

For the dip you may choose to purchase caramel sauce or chocolate caramel sauce. Another option is a bottle of natural peanut or almond butter with a spoon. Nut butters are thicker than dips and sauces. The spoon will help guests add nut butter to apple slices. Since COVID, I would recommend a small container of toothpicks on the table for use with the apples.

Turkey Caramel Apple Tray

Use organic when available. Use 1/2 to 1 apple per person.
