Pop Goes The Bunny: Tasty, Colorful Treats (NAPSA) - Adding fun to the Easter holidays can be as easy as a hop, skip and a jump with crispy, chocolatey pops that look like bunnies. This recipe from Creative Cook's Kitchen requires no baking, so children can take part in the preparation and decoration.
Spray a jelly-roll pan with vegetable cooking spray. In a large saucepan, heat butter and marshmallows over medium-low heat, stirring until melted, about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from heat; stir in cereal.
Spoon mixture into the prepared pan. Using your hands, press to make level; cool completely. Using an oval cookie cutter, cut out six ovals. Using a bunny-shaped cookie cutter, cut out six bunny shapes.
Place cutouts on sheets of waxed paper. Holding the cutout firmly against the paper, insert a craft stick 2 inches into the bottom of each cutout.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, heat white chocolate chips and oil on Medium, stirring at 1-minute intervals, until smooth, about 3 minutes. Using a small offset spatula, spread 1 side of each pop with melted chocolate.
For Easter-bunny pops, press mini candy-coated chocolates into pops for eyes and nose. Press 6 red licorice lace pieces into each pop for whiskers.
For Easter-egg pops, press assorted small candies into pops as desired. Set aside pops until chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
Divide frosting among 4 small bowls. Using food colorings, tint frostings blue, green, pink and yellow. Spoon frostings into separate resealable plastic bags; snip off one corner of each bag. Pipe pink frosting onto Easter-bunny pops for ears and mouths. Pipe remaining frostings onto Easter-egg pops as desired.
Tie ribbons around sticks; let stand until frosting is set, several hours. Wrap pops in plastic wrap until ready to serve.
Serving Size: Makes 1 dozen pops.
