MAKES: 16 servings


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 15 drops red food coloring
  • 16 red gumdrops
  • 32 miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs and water; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Reserve 1 cup batter. To remaining batter, stir in food coloring. Cut a 1/4-in. hole at the corner of two food-safe plastic bags; fill one with pink batter and one with plain batter.
  2. Using pink batter, pipe a 4-in. x 2-in. oval ring onto a greased baking sheet for bunny face. Pipe two ovals for ears. Using plain batter, pipe centers for ears and cheeks for face. Pipe additional pink batter to completely fill ears and face. Repeat with remaining batters.
  3. Trim off bottom ends of gumdrops; use rounded tops for noses. Add chocolate chips for eyes. Bake at 375° for 4-6 minutes or until set. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 16 bunnies.

Very cute and easy to make, however, I thought they were very bland. Added some flavoring to the 2nd batch and they were slightly better, but not great.

Cute recipe, easy to make but if your cake batter is too runny, you have to be really quick to form the bunnies. Kids loved them, it was like Easter pancakes, emphasis on cake!
