Happy groundhog day

Are you doing anything for groundhog day? I saw this fun little edible craft on Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons and grabbed all the stuff to make it. We invited over a few friends and they came out so cute.

If you’d like to make your own little groundhogs in celebration of the big event tomorrow, you’ll need:

- A bag or two of mini chocolate donuts (I say “or two” because I had to go back to the store today and buy another bag after opening the first bag and then not being able to resist them yesterday. Don’t do that.)
- A box of Scooby Snacks (they’re little bone-shaped graham crackers sold in the cracker or cookie aisle)
- Some marshmallows (any size will do because you’ll cut them down)
- A little jar of marshmallow bits
- Some mini chocolate chips
- Something to use as “glue” like frosting, peanut butter, nutella, etc.
- Something for eyeballs (we used an edible marker, you can also use chocolate sprinkles or break off the tips of the mini choc chips)

To assemble them:

- Break the bottom off a Scooby Snack (so you’re left with about 2/3 of the cookie). Flip it over and use the side without writing.
- Attach some marshmallow bits for eyes (using peanut butter or frosting or nutella or whatever you have in the fridge for “glue”)
- Use an edible pen to dot on eyeballs (or use a chocolate sprinkle or break off the tip of a mini choc chip)
- Cut a thin piece of marshmallow for teeth (I used kitchen shears) and stick the teeth to your Scooby Snack
- Jam the cookie into the center of your chocolate donut

    1. Yes, Ree on the left (purple striped shirt). Good eye! :-)

      It's funny the difference light makes, by the way -- Ree is standing with her back to the window, and Ro is facing the window and the two photos look completely different. Wow.

  2. We'll be sledding in 27 degrees on 3 inches of new snow. We're pretty darn sure winter never ends here! I loved Groundhog Day as a kid. Maybe I'll send them on a hunt for the ground hog when we get to the cabin!

  3. So cute! We tried your lentil soup this week, it was so yummy. I used organic vegetable stock instead of water and it turned out perfectly. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. How darling! We didn't do anything. I should have. I was so HAPPY Phil said spring was coming. We are tired of the frozen tundra, fog, smog and temps below freesing.

Please use the nicknames TubaDad, M3, Ro, and Ree instead of our full names in your comments. Cheers!
