When it comes to Thanksgiving, we are all familiar with the standard dishes and sides. There’s the turkey, the potatoes, the green beans, and the cornbread, but what about the snacks? Instead of putting out a bowl of chips or another boring veggie plate, try these Thanksgiving snack ideas that the kids (and the whole family) will love.
This sweet and salty treat is a crowd-pleaser that incorporates all of the best parts of your standard trail mix. This author used Bugles, Reece’s Pieces, popcorn, pretzels, and other autumn-hued treats to create a visually stunning snack mix. The great thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t matter if you have all of the ingredients or not. This snack mix can be made with whatever you have on hand!
Charcuterie is all the rage and you can make it all your own. Just like the trail mix, this concept can be done with anything you have on hand. The author of the board linked above used a muffin tin and all sorts of goodies. Fruits, veggies, cheeses, and treats. All you need are a few cute cookie cutters which you can find here! You can tweak these ideas depending on your family’s preferences and dietary needs.
This fun idea takes a classic kid’s snack and makes it festive using googly eyes, card stock, and a little glue. While this author uses Handi-Snacks, it’s a clever way to add some fun and whimsy to any snack that you already have in your pantry cupboard.
Another great idea that can be done as presented here or with the unique items of your choosing. This one uses snacks you’d likely put out for a party, and arranges them to look like a turkey. Use fruits, nuts, and veggies to offer a cute presentation for any party or get-together.
Who doesn’t like an Oreo cookie? This is more of a dessert than a snack, but they are so fun that we needed to include them on this list. They are a cute and festive treat that no child (or adult) will be able to resist! Candy corn, Oreos, malted milk balls, peanut butter cups, and pretzels are just a few of the ways readers made these treats their own.
