My family’s Easter traditions have evolved over the years. If you’re open to new traditions, I’ve got a great one for you in these super adorable Easter Bunny Buns.
Remember when we used to hide real hard boiled eggs in our backyard? It seemed like every year there were a couple of eggs that did not want to be found, and sure enough about a week later an awful pungent smell would be radiating from the corner of the yard. The Arizona sun had no mercy on the deserted eggs.
We slowly switched over to plastic-filled eggs over the years, and my mom always hid a “golden egg” that had a twenty dollar bill in it. I never found the golden egg because I was too busy stuffing my mouth full of chocolate from my Easter basket.
As we start traditions in my own family, I have to analyze what works for us and what doesn’t. These Easter Bunny Buns
would be a fun new tradition for any family. They’re cute and impressive without taking much time at all, which works for me in this crazy stage of life right now.
I started off with some Pillsbury crusty French loaf dough for these, but you could use any bread dough you have on hand. I divided it into six equal parts and then cut 1/3 of the dough off to make the bunny ears. When I cut them they kind of already looked like ears but feel free to roll them until they look right.
Form the remaining dough into a ball for the face and then attach the ears and bake.
Once they’ve cooled, use some pink frosting to draw on a little nose and some whiskers. Mini chocolate chips work great for the eyes on these.
Just like that, you have easy fun rolls that your kids will go gaga for.
Plus, this Easter tradition won’t leave your backyard smelling horrific!
