Prep Time 10minutes
Total Time 10minutes
1fresh Bartlett or other pear cut in half lengthwisemake sure the pear is a typical pear shape for best results
1/2poundfresh strawberries cut in half with stems cut off
2small oranges sliced and cut in half
2mini candy eyes
1piece of candy corn
1small sliver of strawberry for the snood
4matchstick sized pretzel sticks
1 Tbsp. of white melting chocolates or 1 Tbsp. white icing
1 1/2cupspretzel snaps or pretzel sticks
1kiwi cut into wedges
To assemble your platter: Place the pear in the middle of the tray towards the bottom. You'll need more room on the top for all the fruits.
Start by adding the fruits to the tray around the pear in a semi circle. The best way to do this is to add the larger fruits first like the oranges and kiwi. Then add the smaller fruits towards the top like the strawberries and blueberries.
Next add the eyes (mini candy eyes), beak (candy corn) and snood (small strawberry sliver) with either icing on the back or a small amount of melted white chocolate. Now you can also place the kiwi wedges you cut up for the turkey wings on the platter on the sides next to the pear.
Lastly, add the pretzel stick legs as shown in the picture. To prevent them from rolling all around the tray you can add a little icing or melting chocolate on the underside. The feet are just broken pieces of the pretzels.
Add more pretzels to the bottom of the tray to complete the turkey fruit platter. I used pretzel snaps, but any pretzels you have will work too. Enjoy your tasty and cute turkey fruit platter!
