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.
