  1. I made these with my preschoolers and they came out great. I did use black cake icing to hold the eyes and nose on. The kids had fun making them. Thanks

  2. I made these today and they are so adorable! Thanks for the idea. I didn’t have much luck getting the facial features and ears to stick with the peanut butter from the cookie, but some cake icing did the trick for me!

    1. Hi Pam – you can find them in the cake decorating section of a store. Some grocery stores sell them, but Michaels is always a safe bet. Amazon would have them too!

  3. How cute! My girls will love making these. And the cute groundhogs make yummy spoon biscuits for our pudding. Perfect!
