Groundhog Day Cupcake Push Pops!!

 
To start, you need to whip up the little 
candy groundhog inspired by 
the idea found HERE at Family Fun.

I used a mini snickers for the body.
Mini M&M’s for the ears and nose
Softened pink starburst for his pink nose.
White fondant for eyes and teeth
Black Americolor Marker for eyes

Then bake up some yummy chocolate
mini cupcakes ~ that is the best part!!

I went all out and used a fancy recipe 
called Le’ Pillsbury Box

 
Next, whip up a batch of buttercream. 
I use a recipe I learned from My Cake School.
Mmmmmmmmm, delish.
 
Next..assemble your groundhog pop!
Push the mini cupcakes in the bottom.
Layer with Mr Punxsutawney
Add another mini cupcake on top.
Pipe some white “snow” buttercream on top his head.

Or, if you prefer your groundhog out of his hole
place him on top of the buttercream as shown below!

 
Here you can find Mr. Punxsutawney Phil 
pondering his debut…
 
Will he see his shadow?
Or NOT?
If you don’t have cupcake push pops, no biggie!
These would be cute made in mason jars or just
regular cupcakes with the groundhog used as a topper!

I think the hilarious thing is to push
up the groundhog out of his hole! 
I am easily amused.
