"This fun fruit plate is great for Thanksgiving. Serve with chocolate sauce or yogurt. The possibilities are endless! Prepare all ingredients and set out on a table for the kids to assemble. Makes for a fun afternoon!" — Rusty's girl

walnut half, broken in half lengthwise
whole dried apricots
sweet eating apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
1 (24 ounce) jar
grapefruit sections, well drained
I noticed in the editing process that the staff listed mandarin oranges to be used for the feathers. They will work, but for a good variation of color and larger size, I used grapefruit and orange segments! And for the walnut wattle, it needs to be smooth side DOWN, bumpy side up! Enjoy
What a great dessert for my dinner party! Easy to make and delicious. When I put them out for dessert everyone raved! I made a small change by using grapefruit slices instead of manderin oranges. The size was more in keeping with the apple and apricot slices. This recipe is a KEEPER!!!
So cute! I made this for my son's Christmas party at school, and it was a hit with the kids and the teachers. Thanks for the great idea!
This is such a cute idea! We made this last thanksgiving and the kids had a great time with it and ate their fruit turkeys while waiting for dinner to be ready. I prepared all the pieces, made one for them to use as reference and let them have fun! The only things I changed were that I used fresh clementines instead of grapefruit sections and that I used pecans instead of walnuts because that is what I had on hand.
Lots of prep time with so many ingredients, but very cute!
