While it may not be the most widely celebrated holiday of the calendar year, Groundhog Day (Feb. 2) is a tradition that dates back to 1887 and is a fun way to add some excitement to your little one's week. Check out these seven sweet treats to celebrate the coming Spring (or extension of Winter).

We love Bloom Designs's recipe for Groundhog Cupcakes  — they turn store-bought Teddy Grahams into groundhogs, and sprinkles into green "grass."
Shadow Seeker Cupcakes

Nilla Wafer "Phils" peek out of a bed of chocolate dirt, which can be made out of either pudding or chocolate cake. We love the groundhogs' heart-shaped noses!

The Coziest Cocoa
Especially appropriate if Phil says that Winter's sticking around for six more weeks . . . keep lil ones warm with mugs of hot cocoa — groundhog included.
