Turkey-shaped chocolate covered strawberries

"Pies get all the attention at Thanksgiving so I'm always trying to think of new, fun, bite-size treats you could serve on your dessert spread," Erin Phraner told "Good Morning America." "Chocolate-covered strawberries are a crowd-favorite; indulgent but still fresh after a long meal. Plus, they're great for making ahead of time."

Here's what you need to make them

Directions
1. Line a tray with waxed paper. Break pretzel sticks in half and dip the un-broken ends in melted white chocolate; let harden.
2. Dip strawberries in melted milk chocolate to coat. Before the chocolate sets, attach the pretzel legs (using more melted milk chocolate if needed).
3. Refrigerate until the chocolate sets. You can make these ahead, stored in the refrigerator, for up to 1 day ahead.
