Friends of ours had a Groundhog Day party (and super-secret B-day of Hostess C) last weekend. Instead of making something with our choice of tubers, B made a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake. For those in the know, B's cheesecakes are amazing. Anyhow, to keep it in the theme, after B made and frosted the sucker (it had over 2 lbs of chocolate in it), I decorated it with a groundhog and some radishes sculpted out of marzipan.
I used leftover chocolate graham crackers from B's crust as "dirt" around Punxsutawney Phil and the tubers.
It was dee-lish. And cool lookin'! It almost made up for his prediction of six more weeks of winter.
