These are really cute cupcakes to celebrate Groundhog Day on Feb. 2. The design is from Disney. They are adorable and great for kids to take to school.

I made these for mothers day and made bears instead of groundhogs (because my mom really likes bears)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 baked cupcakes
  • 6 almond joy candy bars
  • 10 white jelly beans
  • 3 watermelon slice candy
  • 48 brown miniature M&M's chocolate candies
