Charlie Brown Thanksgiving cupcakes

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving was an important part of my childhood. I looked forward to watching it every year.

Everyone remembers Charlie Brown’s fateful menu made by Snoopy – of buttered toast, pretzels, popcorn and jellybeans. What kid didn’t want that for Thanksgiving?!

I decided to recreate this famous holiday meal in cupcake form. Makes perfect sense…right?

First I printed out a cute Pilgrim Snoopy and glued it to a popsicle stick. This would serve as the backdrop for the treats.

pumpkin cupcakes (recipe here)
whipped cream cheese frosting (recipe here)
mini toasts
mini pretzels
jelly beans ( I used jelly bellies because they are smaller)

Then I assembled all the pieces of the ‘holiday meal.’

This makes an adorable addition to pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. A sweet and tasty homage to my childhood memories.

    I think this is my 3rd comment under this post. (Yes, I’m nuts.) I just wanted to let you know that I was truly inspired by your Snoopy cupcake and made a “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” cake.
    I hope you can drop by for a visit. http://scrappysugargirl.blogspot.com/2011/12/thanksgiving-2011.html

    Thanks for sharing! My son’s Birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year and I would love to make these! I’ve bought the jelly bellies and mini pretzels already. What did you use as the little wrapper around the cupcake to hold all the “elements?”
