Sweet Bunny Bites

I am completely and totally focused on Easter. It’s now less than two weeks away! I’ve been thinking about Mass on Easter Sunday, the wonderful meals we’ll be sitting down to eat and the laughter we’ll hear from the children as they run through the house searching for their Easter baskets. What a wonderful time of year. I CAN’T WAIT!

Today I’m introducing you to a precious little treat that the kids are sure to enjoy. These little doughnut bunnies are super easy to make and turn out to be, well, maybe some of the cutest things ever. Who can resist the little jellybean nose and tail? Not me. I ate them both – and so did my kids. . .only after they carefully looked the entire rabbit over to see exactly how they were made.

Get ready because here’s where you’re going to gasp. I actually fed these to my children for breakfast. I know, I know. It’s horrible. But, they obviously don’t eat breakfasts like this every day and once and awhile, it’s okay. At least in my book. My kids were super excited to see these little guys on their plates and they gobbled them right up. Of course they did. . .along with a big glass of milk.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the Sweet Bunny Bites:

Materials

  • 2 powdered doughnuts
  • 2 mini chocolate chips
  • 2 pink jellybeans
  • 2 Stackers Marshmallows
  • 3 toothpicks
  • Bunny-shaped cookie cutter

Start by placing one of the toothpicks into the side of one of the doughnuts.

Then, take your second doughnut and slide it over the toothpick, kind of propping it up on its side. Grab another toothpick and stick one of the jellybeans onto the end of it.
Remove the jellybean from the toothpick and slide it onto the toothpick holding the two doughnuts together. Making the hole in the jellybean first makes it much easier to slide onto the next toothpick.
Grab the mini chocolate chips. Careful! Make sure they don’t start melting in your hands. This is very serious work. These will be the bunny’s eyes. Place them above the nose somewhat close to one another.
To make the ears, grab your cookie cutter and the marshmallows. Cut out each ear as shown below.
You may have some little ends you’ll want to trim off to make the ears smooth all the way around. Take your final toothpick and break it in half. Put the toothpick halves through the ears so they look like little popsicles and place them on top of the bunny’s head.
You’re almost finished! Take the final jellybean and place it vertically into the doughnut hole in the back of the bunny. What a sweet little tail {literally}!

Now that’s a cute little Peter Cottontail, even if his “cotton” is pink. If you want, you could color the inside of his ears with some sprinkles or paint it on with a combination of milk and red food coloring. I chose not to because I liked the look of just the white ears.

And don’t worry about making sure their eyes align perfectly. I think they’re actually cuter when they’re not so perfect. That’s me also just covering my bases in case you’re thinking, “She didn’t even line up the eyes.”

Just like my bunnies, I’m not perfect. And you know what, that’s okay. At least that’s what my therapist tells me. Just kidding. Although I don’t need a therapist quite yet, at some point in my life, I may. For now, chocolate seems to suffice when I’m having a troublesome day.

     
You know, just talking about this made me feel better. Did you know I minored in Psychology? Now you do, and now that I think about it, I wonder if I chose Psychology because subliminally I knew, even back then, that I would need self-help throughout life.
Regardless of what you may need, one of these bunnies is sure to help. If anything, they’ll at least make you smile. Have fun making your own Sweet Bunny Bites and don’t forget to share them with others to spread the love (AKA the sugar).
