Adorable Groundhog Cupcakes for Groundhog Day!

Adorable Groundhog Cupcakes for Groundhog Day!

We’re covered in a rare Nashville snow, so it came as little surprise that the furry prognosticator, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow this morning.

We’ve got six more weeks of winter, or so the legend goes. Plenty of time to keep on simmering soups and stews, braising brisket, roasting chicken and potatoes, and baking cakes.

One of the best recipes to bake today in honor of Phil is my Groundhog Day Cupcakes (Cupcakes from the Cake Mix Doctor). They begin with a German chocolate cake mix, and you make a quick frosting, cover the cupcake with chocolate sprinkles, and then place mini chocolate chips, brown M&Ms, and slivered almonds on the cupcakes to give them the distinctive groundhog look. Almost too cute to eat!
