I love to do a little something to celebrate Groundhog’s day. I put this treat together using things I have around the house. Use what you have to put together a fun, simple treat this Groundhog’s day.
Groundhog's day treat
- Chocolate pudding mixed & put in a cute glass
- Chewy granola bar
- whole almonds ears
- slivered almonds teeth
- Sprinkles eye whites, these were flat white disk-like sprinkles I had
- Chocolate Chips melted in a ziplock bag
- Butterscotch chips melted in a ziplock bag
- green flower sprinkles
- Coolwhip snow
- Cut off two of the corners of the granola bar at an angle to form the head.
- Gently press the whole almonds, pointy side down, into the ear spaces.
- Then remove them and put some melted butterscotch chips in the space for “glue”
- attach the ears. (I simply cut off a small corner of the ziplock bag so I could pipe the melted chips where I need them.)
- Using the butterscotch chips attach the teeth and the whites of the eyes.
- Make the cheeks with the melted butterscotch chips going over the very tops of the teeth.
- With the melted chocolate chips make small dots for the eyes, added a nose, eyebrows, hair.
- Place the granola bar in the pudding and add cool whip for the snow and sprinkles for flowers
I used a chocolate chip chewy granola bar. I cut off two of the corners at an angle to form the head. I did remove on or two chocolate chips from the bar that would have been right on his face.
I gently pressed the whole almonds, pointy side down, into the ear spaces, then I removed them and put some melted butterscotch chips in the space for “glue”, then attached the ears. (I simply cut off a small corner of the ziplock bag so I could pipe the melted chips where I need them.)
Using the butterscotch chips I attached the teeth and the white of the eyes. Then I also made the cheeks with the melted butterscotch chips going over the very tops of the teeth. With the melted chocolate chips I made small dots for the eyes, added a nose, eyebrows, hair. Whatever your creativity desires. Once you get going it is hard to stop. It is so fun creating.
Slip him in the fridge until everything hardens up. Then gently place him down into your pudding and add whatever decorations to his den that you would like. This is a perfect project to get the kids involved with. Think about some of the things you have on hand to make your own groundhog!
It can even add a smile to the face of a sick little girl!
