This is a very fun and simple easter desert for the kids to help out with. Each bunny head takes about 30 seconds to make once you have all of your supplies out and cut up. Depending how many bunnies you make will depend on the amount of time it will take to prep and complete them. I made 20 bunnies and it took me about 15 minutes from start to finish. I hope you enjoy these fun delicious easter treats.
Heres what I recommend doing before you start:
1. Wash your hands
2. Get out all your supplies
3. Put the frosting and coconut into separate bowls
4. Cut the bunny ears (as shown in step 7 & 8)
5. Cut the Mike and Ikes or Twist and Pull Licorice (as shown in step 12)
6. Begin the building process
7. Have fun and be creative!

(You can also make the eyes and the nose different colors. This makes things fun and silly for the kids)

(If you use the Licorice)
1. Pull it apart

Place the bunnies whiskers on by dipping the bottom of the whiskers in frosting (like we did with the bunny ears) and stick them onto the bunny!
Feel free to substitute out anything you don't like and please be creative! My 2 1/2 year old nephew absolutely loved rolling the marshmallows in the frosting and coconut, and insisted on dying some of the marshmallows pink and purple, his two favorite colors!
If you are not going to be enjoying these festive treats right away they are best stored in a air tight tupperware container.
