Thanksgiving Fruit Tray: Craft a Festive Turkey with Apples and Caramel Dip
A Thanksgiving Fruit Tray Your Holiday Guests Will Gobble Up!
Serving a Thanksgiving Fruit Tray before the meal is a good way to keep hungry dinner guests from sneaking bites of mashed potatoes or pie out of the kitchen. It’ll stave off their hunger without ruining their appetites. And it’ll buy you some time in the kitchen to finish up cooking the meal.
How cute is this Caramel Apple Tray in the shape of a Thanksgiving turkey? It’s sure to put smiles on all of your holiday guests. Serve with your favorite variety of apples — there’s no right or wrong!
Use store-bought caramel sauce if you’re short on time on time. But if you have a few extra minutes to spare on Thanksgiving morning, whip up our homemade caramel apple dip instead. It takes 15 minutes from start to finish and it tastes amazing.
Produce Moms Tip: Save time by using pre-sliced apples!
- Apple slices
- Caramel sauce
- Place your favorite caramel dip in the middle of a serving platter. (See recipe notes for a link to our homemade caramel apple dip.)
- Arrange the apple slices around the dip to form the feathers of the turkey, as shown in the photo.
- In the caramel dip, place 2 blueberries to create the eyes an an apple slice to make the beak of the turkey.
If you’re feeling extra creative, serve your Thanksgiving Turkey Apple Tray alongside this Thanksgiving Turkey Veggie Tray!
