Things You'll Need

  • Bunny PEEPS

  • Twinkies

  • White icing

  • Pretzels

  • Mini Oreos

Step 1

Cut a rectangle in the Twinkie that's the same size as the bunny PEEP. You want to cut about two thirds of the way through the Twinkie, but not all the way through.

Step 2

Pipe white icing inside the rectangle to act as "glue," and then place the bunny so that it's nestled securely inside.

Step 3

Slide a pretzel in front of the bunny to act as the "steering wheel."

Skateboarding Bunnies

Things You'll Need

  • Bunny PEEPS

  • Mini jelly beans

  • Mini marshmallows

  • White icing

  • Vienna Fingers

Step 1

Slice mini jelly beans in half and stick them inside mini marshmallows to act as "hubcaps" for the wheels. I didn't find it necessary, but if needed, you can use white icing to get the jelly beans to stay put.

Step 2

Use white icing to attach the four "wheels" to a Vienna Finger cookie, which will serve as the skateboard. Let the icing dry completely.

Step 3

Flip the "skateboard" over and attach the bunny on top with white icing. Use a generous amount of icing in front and behind the bunny to ensure it doesn't topple over.

Things You'll Need

  • Chick PEEPS

  • Graham crackers

  • White icing

  • Shredded coconut

  • Green food coloring

  • Mini jelly beans

Step 1

Break three graham crackers in half and place one of the halves on a plate. Pipe white icing around three sides of the cracker.

Step 2

Attach three cracker halves to serve as the back and sides of the house, using icing to adhere them to the bottom cracker and to each other. Let the icing dry completely before attaching the roof, as it will be more stable and easy to assemble.

Step 3

Pipe icing along the top of the house and attach two cracker halves to serve as the roof. Allow the icing to dry.

Step 4

While the icing is drying, add 5 drops of green food coloring to 3/4 cup of shredded coconut and stir until the color is evenly distributed.

Step 5

Spoon "grass" inside the birdhouse and place a chick PEEP inside. Garnish with jelly bean "eggs" laid on the grass.
