Today, in case you forgot, is Groundhog Day. If you have young kids explain the concept to them and make these cute little cupcakes together. It can be like a Friday afternoon treat. Start with your favorite cupcake recipe, (or use Magnolia Bakery Vanilla Cupcakes) stick a chocolate candy bar (my suggestion: a mini twix) up right in the baked and cooled cupcake. Spread your favorite frosting to hold the candy in place. To make the groundhog's eyes and tooth, cut a tiny piece of white jelly bean and glue into place with frosting. Dot with black decorators gel or melted chocolate. Cut a triangle noise from a watermelon shaped sour candy and use mini brown M&M's for adorable itsy-bitsy edible ears and cheeks. Sprinkle chocolate cookie crumb "dirt" around the groundhog. Don't forget to take a picture of your groundhog cupcakes and post in the Savory Sights group on TeamSugar to share your delightful dessert with us all.
Enjoy and Happy Groundhog Day!
