Mozzarella Sticks Turkey Snacks are a fun holiday hack for kids and cheese-loving adults!

These Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks and Bites are a genius way to get creative with your snacking. Par for the season I went with a colorful turkey! For the littles it gives you a chance to talk about all the beautiful colors a turkey might have on on their feathers, and how we can eat colorful food to stay healthy! Bell pepper feathers are a good start! (wink).

For those of us who just love a good snack, the mix of cheesy Farm Rich mozzarella sticks and a tasty mozzarella bite are perfect with a few veggies on the side.

Snack happy with mozzarella sticks and veggies this Thanksgiving!

Mozzarella sticks and sliced bell peppers make the tasty feathers and a mozzarella bite makes the body. I cooked the frozen snacks according to package directions and then arranged everything on a plate. The little turkey legs are pretzel bits and the beak is a triangle of yellow cheese. Make the little waddle from a slice of roasted red pepper (I just had a jar in the fridge!).

I made the eyes using straws! Cut black eyeballs with a small straw from canned black olives. (Just blow on one end to get the little pieces out!). The whites of the eyes are cut from a slice of provolone cheese. (You could also use cooked egg white here, from a boiled egg).

Serve with some warmed marinara sauce for dipping. Happy snacking and happy Thanksgiving!
