From the perch of "Gobbler's Knob," a local hillside in Punxsutawney,PA, a famous, groundhog named Phil has predicted an early spring, or put another way, the groundhog did not see his shadow on Groundhog's Day. In honor of Phil, a PA icon, the kids and I put together these treats for dessert.
I saw the treat, (where else but on Pinterest!) and thought it would add some smiles to a snowy day. The kids got into the action by smashing about 4 oreos in a ziploc bag. We used the smashed oreos as dirt on the top of our pudding cups. The groundhog is made from a Milano cookie. His eyes and nose are chocolate frosting, piped through a very small corner of a baggie. His cheeks are butterscotch chips, with the pointy top removed, and attached with peanut butter. The ears and teeth are almond slivers, also attached with peanut butter. I placed the cookie into the chocolate pudding and then topped it with the oreos. Viola!
