Bunny in a Cup

Kids can help transform dishes of instant pudding into cute bunnies simply by adding store-bought sweets. This dessert never fails to delight my grandchildren.—Flo Burtnett, Gage, Oklahoma

    There is no baking involved. Kids can help with creating everything - except the cutting of the black licorice for the bunny whiskers. It will be a great dessert for anytime around Easter, or a Bunny Party to which you will be feeding a lot of little people!
