Step By Step  

A cookie groundhog peeking out of a donut that's so cute, you won't mind if it sees its shadow!

As prepared by Party Pinching,

Whether it's early spring or a long winter, this Groundhog Day donut is a fun breakfast treat. 

I kinda sorta love Groundhog Day. Maybe because here in Seattle we have to hope that spring is right around the corner. It's usually been raining sideways for 6 months and we worry we won’t see the sun before July 5th.

Or maybe because I just think that those groundhogs are so darn cute.

When my kids were small, we would have these cute groundhog donuts for breakfast while watching the news to see if he saw his shadow or not! These adorable donuts coupled with a cup of hot cocoa was a fun tradition and it made you feel warm and fuzzy inside – even if it meant 6 more weeks of winter!

Let’s pop on over and see how to make this super silly breakfast starring our favorite fuzzy wintertime friend!

Tips  

If the almond ears are too brittle to push into the cookie, attach them with a little frosting or melted chocolate.
