With a simple twist on trusted Kellogg's Rice Krispies treats, moms and kids can create these decorative yummy chocolate bunnies, just in time for Easter. They're so simple and fun to make, they're sure to become a new family holiday tradition. To get the kids involved, let them measure out the ingredients beforehand. They can also try using cookie cutters to shape the bunny heads and bodies, as well as decorate the finished product. Use icing to make the mouth and tail, and attach small candies for the eyes. To display bunnies, arrange them on a tray along with the extra candies. You can also pack the bunnies in clear gift bags tied with ribbon and deliver them to friends and family.
