It’s a silly little “holiday” but everyone wants to know – did the groundhog see it’s shadow?? I find it bit bizarre that we follow this folklore of a critter coming out of it’s hibernation to determine if we’ll have another 6 weeks of winter or not.  That tells you how long winter can seem in some areas! It’s been a while since we’ve seen the sun. Lots of dreary, gray January days in Wisconsin. So we may as well celebrate and make groundhog day pudding cups!

Now, take some M&M’s and cut in half with a knife. These will become the ears. Take a little of the “glue” and spread on the bottom of the M&M and place on top of the cookie.
