In celebration of national Groundhog Day that marks the either early or late arrival of Spring based on if a groundhog sees his shadow are these adorable pop-up cookies that replicate the ceremony using edible ingredients.
These groundhog cookies are put together by lifestyle blog She Knows, and they creatively reenact the traditional event using chocolate and candies. The cookies are designed to replicate the dirt the groundhog crawls out from using oatmeal, peanut butter and cocoa powder to create the texture of soil. The cookies are molded into mounds with a cylinder centre for a groundhog made from Tootsie Roll sweets to pop out of. The edible groundhog can be constructed at varying heights to capture the tiny rodent coming out of the ground.
