Things are really hopping a long & we are excited to be in the kitchen getting ready for Easter activities. We are always looking for fun breakfast ideas; especially around the holidays. This year Caleb joined me to bake up some Bunny Tails to serve for breakfast. Bunny Tails are our version of a baked donut hole filled with all kinds of yummy goodness. We had a lot of fun mixing and messing up the counters with this recipe. You can check out how to make Bunny Tails by watching Caleb’s debut below & then check out our recipe filled with carrots, applesauce, raisins and dates…they’re a quick bite on a busy morning that can be made ahead of time so that you can relax & enjoy the Easter Bunny’s visit.

Once the Bunny Tail muffins have completely cooled. Place 1 tablespoon of confectioners sugar in a Price Chopper brown paper lunch sized bag along with 6 – 8 of the Bunny Tail muffins. Roll the top closed & shake until they are coated. Remove them from the bag & serve. Repeat this until all 18 – 24 of the bunny tail muffins are completely coated.
Note: Coat with confectioners’ sugar just before serving.Jodie Fitz
