Ground Hog Day: Punxsutawney Phil Hot Chocolate

As many of you know, I'm always posting about Holidays and the Chocolate Foods that accompany them. Ground Hog Day was always a favorite of mine since I grew up in Pennsylvania. For those of you outside the U.S. who may not know about this holiday on February 2 is the day when Punxsutawney Phil peaks his head out and if he sees his shadow and returns to his hole, it means there will be another 6 weeks of winter, but if he doesn't see his shadow and comes out, Spring is on its way. This holiday was brought to international attention by the film Ground Hog Day with Bill Murray.

So what Chocolate Treat should you have on Ground Hog Day? Gourmet Mom on the Go has the answer! "She's always "Cookin' up fun for kids of all ages!": Groundhog Day Hot Cocoa. To top it off, she has the cutest ground hog cookies to peek out of the mug! Don't miss her great step by step photos for attaching the ground hog to the cup. See the entire recipe and instructions HERE.

Update: Phil saw his shadow. Watch the video HERE.

What a sweet way to get revenge on Phil when he sees his shadow. :)
