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.

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

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.

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.
