Groundhog Day Pudding Cup Snack {Quick and Easy}

Ugh I am ready for spring already!  So here is hoping that pesky groundhog does not see his shadow this weekend.  Maybe if we all celebrate a little it will cheer him on?  My quick and easy Groundhog Day pudding cup snacks are the perfect way to celebrate.  These are super easy to make for an entire classroom or just as a snack for your little one on Groundhog Day.

You will need:
  • Pudding cups

  • Edible markers in pink and black
  • Coconut
  • Green food coloring

First put some coconut in a zipper bag and add a few drops of green food coloring.  Zip the bag closed and shake around until you have “green grass”.

Open up a pudding cup and push any pudding stuck to the top down.  Add a layer of “grass” aka colored coconut.

Next up comes that pesky groundhog.  Your base is the granola thin.  Then use icing to glue on two Nutter Butters for ears.  Then use the white and black icing to pipe on eyes.  Your edible markers made a cute nose and mouth easily.  Then using the icing pair again to create some “buck teeth”.

Then just shove that groundhog down into his hole.  If you are making these ahead of time for a classroom, I would shove him in his pudding cup very last minute so the granola bar does not get soggy.
