Food to Celebrate Groundhog Day
The most important day of the entire year is almost upon us. The day in which a groundhog, through some kind of anthropomorphic sorcery, tells us how much winter we have left. Believe it or not, many people celebrate this holiday by making groundhog-inspired food. Here are some of our favorites.

Sure, these groundhog-shaped pancakes can’t use psychic powers to predict seasonal shifts, but they are pretty darned cute.
2. Beef Wellington
Beef Wellington is a staple dish of England. No groundhog in the history of groundhog-dom has ever even been to England. Seems shady enough for spring to come early.

Don’t let the cute look on these cookies fool you. If you eat too many of them you won’t be seeing your feet when you look down for six more weeks.

4. Another Cookie
This cute groundhog’s face is made from chocolate chips and raisins. Chips and raisins living on the same cookie together? We’d like to drink to world peace.

5. Brownie Cake
The eyes on this one look eerily real. Bill Murray could spend weeks chasing this brownie around a golf course.

Oh, pizza –– your doughy ability to take on just about any shape makes you a shoo-in for this list.

8. Groundhog Made out of Groundhog
This porky creation features spaghetti for whiskers and rests on a bed of cabbage. Also, it looks pretty unappetizing.

These chocolate bars put the “Yes. Want u!” in P-u-n-x-s-u-t-a-w-n-e-y.

Groundhogs spend most of their time underground. So do potatoes. It’s a match made in heaven –– or Idaho.
11. Terrifying Meatloaf
How much meat could a woodchuck loaf if a woodchuck could loaf meat? This much, apparently.
