Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders or Party Favors

I am sure most of you have all you need at home already for these adorable and edible cornucopia Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders. (Especially if you kids acquired as much candy as our home on Halloween)

We will use the Turkeys we made last year for the adults, but since our numbers have grown I thought I would make something a little different for the kids. I also recently made new Thanksgiving Candy Holders that I think You will enjoy too.

Get the kids involved in making these and be sure to download the Give Thanks Free Printable


All you need are the following for these Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders

  1. Sugar Cones
  2. Chocolate chips and sprinkles (optional)
  3. Candy-ie Runts, skittles, M&M’s, jawbreakers, starbursts etc.
  4. Cellophane Bags
  5. Paper for place cards

This first step is optional but thought it made them a little more decorative and festive.

Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders

Simply melt some chocolate in a microwave safe shallow bowl. Twist the tops of the cones in the chocolate and then cover with sprinkles. Allow to dry completely on a drying rack.

Fill with candy.-Runts would be adorable for this activity, we  just did not have any in our Halloween stash. Hershey Kisses and starbursts are great for fillers in the bottom of the cone.

Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders

Place in a cellophane bag and close the end with a card.

This one is not edible but very elegant for the adult table. Using up small pumpkins from Halloween and Dollar store leaves.

I did these without the kids around so they would not realize how much was taken from their stashes but this would be an easy activity for kids ages 3 and up.

I will try to blog one more time with my favorite pie recipe but if not Happy Thanksgiving!! Will you make these Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders?
