Mini Thanksgiving Dinner Cupcakes

I smile to post this because it's the third year in a row on this recipe blog that I've shared one of our Thanksgiving Traditions with my readers. Yes... Thanksgiving can officially take place now that I have the two dozen tiny mini turkey dinner cupcakes made!

Starting with a frosted cupcake, topped with a cookie, you then spread a thin round layer of frosting. Using Brach's Maple Nut Candies for 'turkey', melted caramels for the 'gravy', white frosting 'potatoes' a dot of yellow food color gel for 'butter' and sugar crystal 'cranberries' with nonpareil 'green beans'; it only looks like a meat and potatoes kind of meal. It's really a sweet treat!

Thanks to my blogs I've shared this 'recipe' many times and I'm happy to report that I now have many, many bloggers and friends and readers that make these (or similar using the products they can find in their own grocery stores) every year for their families. What a great tradition! Are you ready to start???Print Friendly and PDF
