No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Groundhogs Recipe

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Groundhogs Recipe
Looking for something new and fun to serve for dessert on Groundhog Day? No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Groundhogs are quick and easy, require no baking, and are a great treat for adults and children alike. Goldfish crackers, peanut butter, and chocolate are combined, then scooped into little mounds; eyes are added to make them look like groundhogs (if you use your imagination, of course).
Groundhog Day is always celebrated on February 2nd, and serving a main dish made out of “ground hog” (ground pork, sausage, etc.) is a must. For dessert it’s essential to serve something that resembles the little critters. They are cute, of course, but the idea of eating a real groundhog is not particularly appetizing or feasible, since they never seem to show up in grocery stores. No matter; eating anything with chocolate is better than eating a rodent, so even if you don’t go all out for this holiday, dessert is a must.

These groundhogs are actually good anytime. If it doesn’t happen to be Groundhog Day, simply omit the eyes.
