Bunny Buns! Now, it's really Easter!

I know, I know, I don't post for months and then three in a row but I had to get this up before Easter. My kids flipped out this month when they got their Friend magazine and saw BUNNY BUNS on the cover and the recipe for them inside the magazine. Bunny buns of the Stovall's youth. Am I the only one who remembers them? Apparently the original recipe was published in 1980(really, does time really go that fast?!) I am sure some of my siblings must remember them as well. Anyway, two years ago, I had a craving for the Bunny buns and I searched and found the recipe. I think I asked mom first but she couldn't find it. So, Jacob, Ryan, and I made them and had sticky fun glazing them and decorating them. We did not make them last year but they still remembered the experience (who can forget the bunny bun?) and so they were super excited to see the buns in the Friend again and have been asking for weeks to make them. So, we did it tonight and here are the bunnies of our labors. Sticky, orangey goodness.

The children and their lovely bunnies. It was a bit of a challenge to get this picture: Ryan was devasted because I chose his beloved bunny to be the one we "tested out", Alison was so tired she could barely sit there, and Jacob kept wanted to go lick the glaze bowl and throw more sprinkles in his mouth.

Oh I remember Bunny Buns alright! That was the first thing I noticed on the cover of The Friend. And we made them today. We'll send you a picture!

Oops that was me, but under Mark's account.
