It’s a beautiful, beautiful day outside and I’m thinking that spring is coming soon, at least to my neck-of-the-woods. But Saturday we will find out for sure if we can expect sunshine or stormy weather. Come one Phil. Don’t let us down!
This week I thought I would share some Groundhog Day recipes. I’ve already shared Groundhog day pancakes and today we made another Groundhog day recipe: Punxsutawney Pudding cups (which I can’t even say, so let’s call them Groundhog Day pudding cups for short. 😉 Okay?)
These turned out so cute and I got the idea from my favorite magazine Family Fun and I modified it just a bit.
I made up some instant pudding but you could make this easier by just buying the pudding cups that are already made.
I then added crushed Oreo cookies to the top to resemble the dirt.
Then it was time to turn regular Milano cookies into Punxsatawney Phil. (There’s that name again. Try typing that 5 times fast).
I found this nifty neato trick of adding frosting to medicine syringes for adding small details to cookies or whatever you are decorating and it worked like a charm. Especially since I just needed a little bit.
I used the syringe to add eyes and a nose to the groundhogs. Then I added two peanut butter chocolate chips for the cheeks and two sliced almonds for the ears. I had big plans of cutting other almonds and making teeny tiny teeth for the groundhogs but, sorry, that was NOT going to happen. I attempted though. Like I’ve said before, if it’s not easy peasy it doesn’t belong on this blog. 🙂
Then just take these cuties and put them in your pudding cups.
And as you enjoy your yummy treat let’s just hope we will be seeing spring really soon. I guess we’ll find out soon enough!

Oh my gosh! These are the cutest things ever! My daughter used to only want to go a certain restaurant for dinner just because the kids meal had a free dirt cup for dessert. Love these! Thanks.
Thanks Wendy! Maybe you’ll have to make one for her so she can reminisce. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a dirt cup for dessert. 😉

What a cute idea! Kids could even help to make this fun recipe. Here’s hoping that Punxsutawney Phil doesn’t see his shadow!
