Making Easter Magic

Well, I say "Easter Magic" because I feel like I managed to pull a... um... rabbit, out of a hat!

It was the morning of the twins' preschool Easter market and I hadn't made any clever Easter themed crafts, or baked any yummy Easter treats for them to take along to sell. Eeeek!!

I had to make a plan, and quickly!

After dropping the girls at school, and with only an hour (and a bit) to spare before I had to return with my wares, I headed for the nearest supermarket. I was thinking that I could maybe buy some Easter chocolates or sweeties to sell.
I walked into the shop and was greeted by a display of Hot Cross Buns. Some with raisins, some with chocolate chips. It gave me an idea!! I hurried home.

Hot cross buns. Some with raisins, some with chocolate chips.

I rolled them flat in an attempt to make them go further. It worked.

Using a rabbit shaped cookie cutter, I cut out as many as I could.
Sometimes including the 'join'.
Hot Cross Bunnies!
If I'd had more time, I would have added a thin layer of white glacé icing
and perhaps a Jelly tot tail.
Maybe next time.
