Groundhog Day Cupcakes

Groundhog Day Cupcakes

Here are the Groundhog Day Cupcakes I made for a little get-together I’m going to tonight.  I took simple chocolate cupcakes, covered them with green sprinkles, and added one chocolate Teddy Graham to each.  This was a simple and fun treat to make!


I chose the chocolate Teddy Grahams but you could choose the original which is a very light tan or the cinnamon which is a medium brown.  I recommend making sure your store has green sprinkles unless you want to be like me and very carefully pick the green ones out of a multicolored pack.  {I don’t recommend this!}  If your store doesn’t have green sprinkles you could always opt for green icing instead of chocolate.


Be aware that Teddy Grahams come in two different shapes, with arms up {pictured} and with their arms to their side.  I tried them both but quickly noticed the one with it’s arms down looked like a sad teddy bear trying to escape being buried alive.  Not a good kid-friendly image.  The arms up bear is much happier in my opinion.


You are probably saying to yourself, “a bear is not a ground hog.”  Yes, you would be right.  Teddy Grahams are bears but that’s pretty close to a groundhog in looks, right?  Close enough for kids anyway!  I hope you’ve enjoyed my simple Groundhog’s Day Cupcakes and will give them a try yourself.  If you do, I would love to see your pictures or a link to them on your blog.

Happy Groundhog’s Day everyone!!!
