Happy Groundhog Day!
Last year I had seen these amazing little groundhog crackers in pudding over on babble’s website and couldn’t wait to make them. I suppose I didn’t need to wait a year but it felt appropriate to wait until the next Groundhog Day really.
The graham cookie recipe I used can be found on Smitten Kitchen’s site.
These were not as easy as they look to make! Not only do you have to cut out a few dozen little groundhogs but then you have to wait for them to cool in the fridge or freezer, bake them, and wait for them to cool before even thinking about painting their little faces on. Needless to say, I was a little impatient once it came to their faces as it was just about time for bed. This little guy was the cutest in the bunch with many not even making it past the destruction phase (read: eaten).
I’ll definitely make these again but likely only once a year and will allow myself a bit more time next time. Too cute!
