I wanted to make these for you last weekend, but other bunny bottoms got in the way


Egg dying and birthday partying

I used refrigerated sugar cookie dough and tried to cut it out and bake it, which doesn’t work FYI…so I cut the bunny shapes while the baked dough was still soft and warm from the oven


A little pink icing on the ears and to secure some sugar bunny feet,  and a large fluffy cottontail

I made the cottontails out of the Coconut Rum Snowball mixture here

Or you can mix cream cheese with a little powdered sugar, coconut and rum extract, roll into balls and cover with coconut,  or just use white icing
