Bunny Cars

Scripture to Live By:
But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!”And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him.  Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
Matthew 28:5-10

Recipe Post:
We were in Ohio for the last few days visiting our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  We so enjoy our time with them.  I wanted to make these Peeps Bunny Cars with them.  I think they are so cute. We had a great time making them and the children enjoyed eating them, as well.  

So if you would like to make them with your children, here is what you will need:
1 - 2 boxes of Twinkies or Cloud cakes (According to the number of cars you would like to make.)
1-2 boxes of Peeps Rabbits (They come in yellow, pink, purple and blue.)
1 bag of pretzels
1 can of vanilla frosting (If you use the Spring frosting it has sprinkles on it to use to decorate your cars.)
1 bag of marshmallows
Decorating sprinkles
Easter grass

Place a Twinkie on a plate and cut a rectangle out about an inch wide, 2/3 back on the twinkie.  (You and eat what you remove from the cake.)

Add approximately a teaspoon of frosting into the area you took out the cake. 

Cut the bottom portion off your rabbit and put the top portion into the slit on the Twinkies.

Next break the bottom off a mini pretzel.  Use the top portion as the steering wheel of your car.

Put it in front of your rabbit.

 Cut 2 marshmallows in half width wise.  These halves will be your wheels.

Add a touch of frosting to the cut side of your marshmallow and place two on each side of car.  One in the front and one in the back.

Mix some frosting (approximately 1/2 cup) and add the food coloring to make frosting the color you want it to be and put it in a pastry bag.  Use a star tube or a writing tip to decorate the car with.

I put some lug nuts on each wheel 

Then added some stars to fancy them up.  

Next I dotted the top of the car with frosting and placed different color of stars on it.
And added some grass to the plate.  

I think these little cars are so cute and you can enjoy making them with your children, grandchildren or friends.  I know my grandchildren certainly enjoyed designing their own.

 My grandson made a hot rod out of his car.  

So Cute!!!!!!!
Yummy Too!!!!!!
