First off, Happy Groundhog Day! As most of you know today is for real my favorite holiday.
And now on to more amusing topics: As I shared with my Facebook followers, I received this little beauty of an email yesterday and really, it was too good not to share.
With the combo of your latest RSS Feed choice as well as the lack of quality of your blog lately I must unsubscribe from you. A rice Krispie treat and Funfetti in the same week. I’m expecting to see just a picture of an Oreo cookie the next time I click over the rate you are going.”
Well, as you can see, though it is not an Oreo, it is a store bought cookie (store brand even). And store bought whipped cream from a can. So take that! The decline is on the way!
This little cute groundhog is not my idea. It comes from a site that has some really fun stuff, especially if you are a parent…Gourmet Mom on the Go. She actually had a few Groundhog ideas and I was super giddy to see that. There are lots of ideas for food and crafts to make with your kids. I don’t have kids, but act like one, I want to make a lot of the things on there…and do. And if you are looking for more craft ideas to do for yourself or with your kids, check out Crafts by Amanda. Cute, cute ideas.
Groundhog Day Hot Cocoa
Cookie Groundhogs (for step by step go here)
2 cups whole milk
1 1/3 cups half and half
1/3 cup Nutella
3 ounces milk chocolate chips
½ tsp. vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan over low-medium heat, whisk together all the ingredients until fully incorporated and melted. When hot, pour into mugs. I suggest using a funnel. Don’t fill the mug up to the groundhog or else he is going for a cocoa bath quickly.
*Warning- the groundhog will heat up and sink. So I suggest removing him after you serve him to the kids. Nothing worse than watching a drowning groundhog. Yikes.
