More About This Recipe
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!
You’ll need a donut, chocolate frosting, cookies, sliced almonds, a heart sprinkle and an edible marker.
Frost the donut (I like LOTS of frosting) and sprinkle a crushed Oreo on top.
Push almonds in the Milano™ cookie for ears and make two dots for eyes on the cookie using a black edible marker.
Attach the M&M™ Mini for the nose and the upside down heart sprinkle for the teeth with a toothpick dipped in frosting.
Stick the groundhog cookie in the donut’s hole so he is popping out. Put some chocolate rock candy around the donut too.
Come on Phil! Don’t let us down! We need an early spring!
