Bunny Cookies

Bunny Cookies

    Next weekend is Easter and we will be spending that time with my Sister In Law and meeting our new niece Jazlyn who was born this week. Not only is it special because we will be creating precious memories with family but also because of the religious significance of the day for all of us. Since we will be taking a road trip to visit my SIL, I wanted to make some special treats for my sons and nephews to enjoy on the trip over there.

    There is no better treat for eating on the road than cookies. Not only are they easy to make, but they are also easy to transport. I’m pretty sure the whole family will love these delicious Bunny Cookies. Everyone, that is, except our niece. She will have to wait until next year when her teeth grow in to sample them!

8.  In a small microwave safe bowl, heat your white candy melts on 50% power for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.

10.  Sprinkle a little pink sugar into the center of the white ears and transfer to the freezer to harden.
