|How about making some Thanksgiving Cupcakes for the kids this year? If you want something different in addition to the pumpkin pies, how about Turkey or Scarecrow Cupcakes? Or a Pilgrim’s Hat from a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup? Yum.|
|Turkey cupcakes have a jawbreaker or lemonhead for a head and candy corn beak and feathers. I like how the cupcake picks add some dimension to the turkeys and scarecrows. That’s always cool!|
|These are really so easy to decorate a child aged 4 could do them. Just have an adult do the dab of icing for eyes. I just used a cake decorating tip and chocolate and vanilla icing.|
|These turkey “heads” were leftover treats from Halloween. Giant Lemonheads or jaw breakers for a turkey face work great. You could also used Malt Balls, but they wouldn’t be as colorful.|
|These Peanut Butter Cookies I added Reese’s Pieces to them for fall colors. They were gobbled right up on Thanksgiving Day!|
|Easy Scarecrow Cupcakes. They were tasty and cute too!|
And the Thanksgiving Cupcakes made a very cute dessert buffet table too! The kids in your family (big kids or little kids) will all love them. You could also use this as a fun activity after Thanksgiving dinner too. Kids would love to decorate their own cupcake with candy!
|Last year we made gingerbread houses and these cute Cookie Pilgrim Hats from a Keebler striped cookie and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. The “buckle” is a cut up gumdrop.|
|I just added some Milk Chocolate chips to the Cupcake batter to make it a little bit richer and yummier. Sometimes I add a small chocolate pudding box to the dry mix and a cup of sour cream if I want them super rich and tasty.|
Try adding some chocolate chips to your next batch of chocolate cupcakes. You will love it. If I use yellow cake mixes I might add butterscotch chips to the batter for cupcakes. And I’ll add a vanilla pudding small box (dry) and a cup of sour cream to the mix too.
|I frosted the cupcakes and used chocolate sprinkles on them before decorating them further.|
|Have some fun this Thanksgiving for your kiddos and grandkids; make Turkey Cupcakes! Or Scarecrow Cupcakes. Or make both kinds on Thanksgiving Day for a fun activity after everybody has enjoyed the turkey dinner! We have made gingerbread men and houses too. It’s a fun activity for kids and a sweet memory.
Then when you are all done eating. Play some Thanksgiving BINGO HERE FREE, or else play Pin the Hat on the Turkey. I got mine from the dollar store! 😀 Have more fun on Thanksgiving Day.
