Pretzel Turkey

Pretzel Turkey


  • 5 Snyder’s of Hanover® Sourdough Specials
  • 5 Snyder’s of Hanover® Thins Pretzels
  • 2 Snyder’s of Hanover® Mini Pretzels
  • 1 Snyder’s of Hanover® Snap Pretzels
  • A bit of ribbon, something for a beak (we used a piece of candy corn) eyes (although we used googley eyes available at any craft store, you can easily draw the eyes on a piece of paper or cardboard)


  1. For the body: Lay a Sourdough Special flat and glue on another Special that’s turned 90 degrees. Repeat until all 5 Specials are used. 

  2. Making the Tail feathers: Lay a Thin Pretzel on a flat surface. On top of this glue on 3 Thins, sides touching to form a semi-circle. Top with last Thin. When completely dried, glue tail to body.  

  3. Now for the head: glue 2 Mini Pretzels together and set aside. Glue the Snap Pretzel to the body and then glue on the stack of 2 Snaps.  

  4. When completely cool, glue on the beak, eyes and a piece of ribbon. 

  5. Note: if you want an edible pretzel turkey, try using almond paste or peanut butter as a substitute for glue gun.
