Funny Bunnies

Tonight we had some fun making these cute bunnies as treats for friends.  I thought we were making them for my girls' classes, but I would have needed ALOT more bags of the melting chocolate.  I found the directions for making them over at Kate's beautiful blog here. I took her advice and used pastel candy corns for ears rather than drawing them on. Of course I used pre-made Rice Krispie treats - anything to make life a little easier.  We started these things way too late - right after dinner - and my hubby wasn't home to occupy the little man, so things got a little hectic - but we had alot of fun!

We made quite a mess!

Here they are during the process:

(And yes, I realize I am only taking pics of bunny pops at this point, while leaving my children out!  I couldn't help it, the bunny pops were too cute!)

And here they are, packaged up and ready to give to friends and teachers - SOOO cute!!!

You may notice that a few ears fell off, because some little people were not listening when Mom told them to put alot of icing on the candy corns before they attached them - but, I put aside my perfectionist ways and let them have fun, so the results were not picture perfect =)

And THIS is what happened after my helpers decided to abandon the project and play an injury-inducing rousing game of "crawling chase."  Carter LOVES these sisters!  I adore the look he's giving Emily. 

{And yes, I do realize that Carter is naked and Emily is wearing a Christmas fleece gown.  She was cold but it was really warm inside!}

Hope you enjoyed!
