Bunny Munch

Life has been a little crazy lately. Why is it that, when you’re super busy, things just get busier?

Normally, Spring is our easy time. Once Jordan’s birthday is over I can take a breath and wait for the busy Summer to start.

But this year? Oh my goodness. It’s been a month since Jordan’s birthday and I feel like I haven’t been able to surface to take a breath. She was sick, I was sick. My husband has been traveling a lot. My parent’s have had their health scares and I’ve been down to their house twice. And this list doesn’t even include regular day-to-day stuff, like volunteering in Jordan’s class or all the stuff that’s been happening for the PTC at school.

And then there is the annoying regular stuff, like cleaning the house, grocery shopping, Easter shopping.

Yeah, I have not even begun to think about Easter baskets or treasure hunts or eggs.

And we’re going on a trip over Spring Break. In a week and a half. And I have not made one list. *Gasp*

I’m not really complaining, just venting a little. I know that, in comparison to so many, my life is easy.

But still. Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.

I get stressed about making sure I have new content here and commenting and linking and Facebook and Twitter and the next big social media thing. I realize it’s almost Easter and I haven’t made anything cute.

But then I walk away from the computer for a minute and realize I’m more stressed. Because being here, in virtual land, with all of you? Actually makes me happier. Being in my kitchen, creating and baking and photographing? Makes me relax, in the long run anyway.

Getting to meet fellow bloggers that I had no idea actually live within walking distance of me, and having a three hour coffee that seems like it was five minutes? Priceless.

So thanks, you know, for being my outlet. It gets me through the hard days.

And then, so does dessert. Dessert, like my fellow bloggers, has never failed me. At least now I can check one Easter recipe off my list. (Yippee!)

This is a munch for bunnies. Chocolate eggs (Cadbury, of course), bunny tails (marshmallows), and carrots (dipped Bugles).

The dipped Bugle idea is totally from Cookies & Cups. She dips Bugles to look like Santa hats, y’know.

I dipped my Bugles in orange candy melts.

Then dipped the tips in green.

I added some green sugar to make them look “frawny.” (I think I made that word up.)

This is a super easy Easter snack. And easy is good.

And it’s almost like I’m eating vegetables. Right?

Bunny Munch

Ingredients

  • Bugles
  • Orange candy melts
  • Green candy melts
  • Green sugar
  • Chocolate Eggs (Cadbury or like)
  • Mini marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Melt the orange candy melts according to package directions. Dip Bugles (point side down) in orange candy and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill until hardened.
  2. Melt the green candy melts according to package directions. Dip the top end of the Bugels in green candy and then immediately into the green sugar. Place back on the cookie sheet and chill until hardened.
  3. Mix a bowl full of the "carrot" Bugles, chocolate eggs, and mini marshmallows. Enjoy!
  4. Note: marshmallows get stale quickly. Do not add the marshmallows until you are ready to serve. You can also add pretzels or whatever other snacks you like to this mix. Change it up to your liking.

    I know how you feel Dorothy! Our schedules (with four kids) keeps us on our toes all the time. We go from Football, to Basketball, to Soccer. Plus we have Brownies, volunteering at school and all the crazy stuff in between! My grandmother always tells me to just take it in stride because it goes by far too fast and before we know it they will going off to college!

    I also love to “check-in” on my bloggin’ buddies, it gives a little bit of “me” time to escape the craziness!

    Keep your chin up…you’ll get everything done :)

    Oh my gosh, this is so cute I can’t stand it! The bugles as carrots are so creative, although I love the marshmallow tails too!

      Thank you so much. I’m in love with bunny butts right now so the tails are my inspiration. :)

    I’m such a stalker, but I love this! Riley would get a kick out of it and I might be able to confuse her enough to get her to eat carrots! I’d love it if you got a sec you might link it up at Whimsy Wednesdays at http://www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com/2012/03/whimsy-wednesdays-3.html. No pressure!

    SO cute!

    And I’m jealous that you’re getting to have day dates with other bloggers! lol, I actually googled “blogger support groups” in my area one time. There’s one 2 hours away. And they haven’t met in 3 years.

    :(

    LOVE this idea though!

    I think we all feel the same way…busy, so we have to escape to our computers for some down time! Or maybe that’s just me:-) I am jealous too that you had a blogger meet up. One of these days I will meet some of my blogging BFF’s.

    The bunny mix…too too cute!!! I love the tails:-) And I am all for saying it is veggies when you are eating it:-)

    That looks ridiculously easy. Maybe I’ll treat the children (all 30 of them) to this the week before Easter…if I’m feeling generous ;)
    Best of luck with the balancing act. It can’t be easy to have so much on your plate!

    How cute! I would love these, right about now. Seriously, a great way to start my day with my first cup of coffee! The salty-sweet thing, yes? ;) Great to see you last night, too. :) And, ya know, those little Cadbury mini eggs, well, let’s just say I buy the BIG bagS each year, and save them…Yes, I hoard them…Sad, but oh so true!

      Yes! For sure. Sugar in the morning is always good. Cuts the caffeine. Unless you’re like me and like lots of sugary coffee. :) Those eggs…I ate the whole bag!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at Scrumptious Sunday. These are so so cute. Love them! And if it makes you feel any better, I haven’t started yet for Easter. And right after Easter is my oldest’s 5th birthday…haven’t started planning that yet either (and he wants a firetruck theme). Eeks! Have a good evening, my blogland friend :-)

    BUGLE CARROTS!?!?!?!?!?!??! I knew I loved you. Sounds like life has been super hectic but hopefully you can relax soon on your trip. I find it somewhat comforting that I am not the only one who stresses new cute content. I work part time and I always am daydreaming edible crafts and cupcakes while I am at work..people must think I am CRAAAAAAAAZEEEEEEEE. Oh well.
