So, I have to give my husband the culinary credit (again!). These adorable bunny Rice Krispies treats were his idea.

We have a whole drawerful of sprinkles left over from both of our daughters’ birthday parties. So, when I told him I wanted him to make some Rice Krispies treats for Easter, he suggested that we use the pink sanding sugar to fill in the ears for our cute bunny Rice Krispies treats.

The only problem was, we didn’t have a bunny cookie cutter.

So I scoured Kroger, Michael’s, and Hobby Lobby, but I still couldn’t find a bunny-shaped cutter that I liked. The ears on all of them were just too short or too narrow to use for his genius pink sugar idea.

So, we tried a paper template.

After all, that’s what parenting/baking/cooking/crafting/life is all about, right? Trial and error.

And this trial was a dang success!

We used a bunny template that I already had from when I made my cute DIY Easter banners. (You can print the bunny template HERE).

Just cut out the bunny shape, press it onto the top of your Rice Krispies treats, and use a pairing knife to carefully cut around the edges.

Easy peasy!

After you are done cutting, carefully take the bunny out. We found that it was easiest to gently tear away the treats from around the bunny. Then, use your fingers to gently shape any jagged edges.

Dip the bunnies in melted white candy melt chips, decorate, and you’re done!

Here’s the full recipe so you can make your own easy Easter treats for the kiddos! (Prefer to use the Original Rice Krispies Treats recipe? You can find it here.)
