10 twists on hand-held, kid-friendly Thanksgiving desserts

pumpkin cake pops

When searching for kid friendly Thanksgiving desserts, finding something the kids will like to eat takes top priority. Making it cute comes second. Check out these clever ideas that make eating dessert fun for kids while adding color and decor to the buffet table.


Kids will love Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes decorated with chocolate sprinkles, candy corn and candy eyeballs.


Apple wedges on a stick and dipped in a variety of yummy confections are sure to please.  Craftberry Bush shows how to create an apple bar so the kiddos can assemble their own toppings.  My favorite; cheesecake, made from dipping apple in white chocolate, caramel and graham cracker crumbs.

Acorns are the perfect fall decoration and are the theme of these 3 treats:


Nutter Butter Acorns are a must for a quick and simple make-ahead fall themed treat.


Acorn Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are so cute with a chocolate kiss, vanilla wafer and butterscotch chip, all held together with peanut butter.


Donut Hole Acorns made with Nutella and so good!

The kids can help assemble Pilgrim Hat Cookies using store bought cookies and miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.


Mini Turkey Pops are a fun way to decorate the Thanksgiving table with take-home treats.


Using mini pie pans, Chocolate Chip Pecan Pies are the kid version of traditional pecan pie.


Pumpkin Whoopie Pies take the traditional pumpkin pie and takes it up a notch with cute little shapes.


No-Bake Pumpkin Cookies are paleo and healthy, so you get the best of both worlds!

Be sure to make plenty of these kid friendly hand held desserts as they’re not just for kids!
