As Charlie brown once said “I can’t cook a Thanksgiving dinner. All I can cook is cereal and maybe toast”. That’s me, I’m Charlie Brown. I can’t cook very well but I can definitely bake! I found the idea for these cute Charlie Brown Thanksgiving cupcakes and couldn’t wait to try them! The recipe is very simple. All you need is cupcake mix, frosting, toppings and a few arts and crafts materials.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Cupcakes
Go shopping. You will need the following and I have made it easy for you by linking everything to Amazon. You never even have to leave your house to make these!
- cupcake mix ( I used classic white),
- White frosting
- melba toasts
- pretzel twists
- small jelly beans
- tulip cupcake wrappers. I found mine at Ralph’s but you can find some on amazon.
- popsicle sticks
- Pilgrim Snoopy Clipart
- optional – Snoopy Thanksgiving napkins (I found mine at Marshall’s but they sell them on Amazon too)
Print out as many Pilgrim Snoopy cliparts as you need onto white stockpaper. You can use the example below. Just click on the picture and it will take you a page with a variety of pilgrim Snoopy’s. Then trim them and glue them to the back of a popsicle stick.
Bake cupcakes according to package. Pour them into baking cups.
Frost the cupcakes. The frosting will help your toppings stay in place. Now place your Snoopy popsicle stick in the back.
Add the melba toasts in the top left hand corner against Snoopy.
Add the popcorn down the middle of the cupcake.
Add pretzel twists to the right hand side.
Add the jelly beans to the front left pocket. Now you are finished! Happy Thanksgiving Charlie Brown!
