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:
- 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.
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.
