Groundhog's Day Cupcakes

 

Here's a fun way to celebrate the Feb. 2 tradition we call "Groundhog's Day." Make your own Punxsutawney Phil . . . and if he sees his shadow and forecasts six more weeks of winter, you'll be totally justified in EATING HIM!

 

Supplies for one cupcake:

 

One baked cupcake

 

White frosting

 

One Almond Joy or Mounds mini candy bar

 

A couple of small white jelly beans

 

Black cake decorating gel

 

Pink Nerd candy

 

Brown M&M Mini's

 

One chocolate wafer cookie

 

 

 

  1. With a sharp knife, cut out a piece of the top of the cupcake just as wide as the mini candy bar.

 

  1. Warm the mini candy bar slightly in the microwave (so the face pieces will stick to it) and place it, upright, into that hole.

 

  1. Frost the top of the cupcake to secure the candy bar in place.

 

  1. Place brown M&M mini's for two cheeks and nestle one pink Nerd above and between them for the nose. If they don't stick into the slightly-warmed chocolate of the mini candy bar, use a tiny dab of white frosting as "mortar."

 

  1. Cut a tiny square out from the side of a mini white jelly bean for the front teeth and stick it in place into the chocolate under the cheeks, or apply with frosting.

 

  1. Cut another mini white jelly bean in half and place the halves into the candy bar as eyes. Dot "pupils" with black cake decorating gel.

 

  1. Sprinkle chocolate cookie crumbs (one side of an Oreo cookie with the frosting scraped off will do) around the groundhog like "dirt" from his hole.
