Rice Krispie Turkey Drumsticks

Have fun creating a special memory this holiday season by surprising your grandchildren with these Rice Krispie Turkey Drumsticks.

Rice Krispie Turkey Drumsticks

When we were kids, my Uncle Dean (my Dad’s brother) would join us for Thanksgiving and Christmas day dinners when he wasn’t sailing around the world.

He was an avid traveler and listening to him share stories about his latest adventures around the globe is a favorite memory of mine. It is not however my favorite memory of Uncle Dean.

My favorite memory was marveling at his ability to eat the largest amounts of food is the shortest amount of time. Whenever he was home for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, he would eat three times as much food as anyone at the table and be done eating before we even thought about having seconds.

When it came time for dessert to my utter amazement, Uncle Dean would put down several servings of pie. Followed by multiple large pieces of my Mom’s famous fudge.

Uncle Dean always said traveling halfway around the world to be home with his family and to enjoy my Mom’s cooking was worth the trip!

Who knows maybe one of your grandchildren will gobble up their Rice Krispie Drumstick faster than my Uncle Dean could.
