Reviews for Easter Bunny Treats
"These bunny's will not stand up. It took us over 20 min to make them. Making them look good and like a bunny is hard and there is no way too get the lines thin enough.When you do get them to look ok they fall over on there faces and smear. I gave it a one just because it was alot of fun to make (or at least try to make)."
"I did this with my Sunday School students a while back. This is adorable and simple. Easy to assemble and delicious to eat!"
"These are easy and fun for my grandson and I to make together"
"Linda and CometCooker, I am TOTALLY with you on having a hard time making these...UNTIL I finally gave in and used TOOTHPICKS! Seriously, I was so frustrated (In what universe does this only take 15 minutes to do 12 using frosting as glue?)...then I said "ARG!" and grabbed my jar of toothpicks. After that, the ears and feet and arms all stayed on just fine and they turned out great!! I just had to warn the kids not to pop 'em into their mouth whole. Hahaha. These are adorable!"
"Well I am not a Bunny Maker!! I gave it a try but I couldn't get the ears to stay on. I did not make the icing I bought it, but what a difficult time I had. But they were cute but too fidley for me. Good luck to all that can make these work. I would love to know the secret."
"I think the adults making them had more trouble then the kids but all in all great "Messy" fun enjoyed ever minute"
"This is such a cute and fun thing to do with the kids! For all the parents out there that don't like sugar, this is not for you, if you don't like it, don't bother to comment, we don't CARE if you think it is bad for you, boo hoo. I raised four kids and they had sugar and guess what?? They are healthy and alive! LOVE this recipe!!!"
"They were cute but (at least for me) they were not quick. I don't see how anybody could put these together in 15 minutes! I guess I'm just not smarter or faster than a fifth grader."
"This is great! We may actually used this for our seniors & disabled group and I know they'll love them. Rockamamma, you need to take a chill pill. So it's a bit of sugar, makes me wonder what your kids get for easter or halloween, or christmas or even birthday cake."
"Great idea. Easy to make, even for younger kids. To all who gripe about sugar, I grew up eating 3 meals a day, with sugar I am sure. Helicopter parents need to get a life and stop hovering unless you want your kids to grow up selfish,spoiled and thinking they are intitled to everything they want. GET A LIFE! Stop pampering."
"This is a great idea! My daughter was student teaching and needed a co$t-effective Easter craft to do with her class. It was a huge hit! Each child added their own personal creativity to their bunny."
"Thanks for the memory! Made these with a neighbor friend and her baby sitter when we were preschoolers.... about 1952!! Will make them with my granddaughter as soon as I can find gluten-free marshmallows. Wish sugar was our only concern!"
"So cute. My grandkids enjoyed making them."
"So cute! I agree, that much sugar won't hurt."
"So cute! the kids loved it!"
"lighten up! Good grief, it's just for fun and it wouldn't kill the kids to eat just one. Children love these projects and that's how you make happy memories."
