It may have been my blog! Here was one of the 2006 posts I did - http://www.housewifebarbie.com/2006/11/mini-thanksgiving-dinner-cupcakes.html I've made these for years - it's a family tradition. :)
- 12 cupcakes, prepared
- 1 (8 ounce) bagbrach's maple nut decorative candies
- 1 (8 ounce) can white frosting
- 1 (5 ounce) packageyellow gel food coloring
- 1⁄4 cup non-pareils (red or green)
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips or 1⁄2 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 (12 ounce) package cookies (any kind)
- 1⁄2 cup yellow frosting (for the 'plate')
Directions See How It's Made
- Bake and cool your favorite cupcake recipe.
- Place frosting on the cupcake and top each with a cookie while the frosting is soft to 'adhere' the cookie-plate to the cupcake.
- Slice the maple nut candies thin and layer them as 'turkey'.
- Dab some white frosting next to it for 'mashed potatoes' followed with a little dab of yellow gel food color as 'butter'.
- Melt your butterscotch or chocolate chips and thin with a little vegetable oil.
- Drizzle over the 'turkey' as gravy.
- Finish it off with the 'cranberries' (red colored sugar or non-perils) and little green 'peas' or 'beans'.
