Bunny Bites

Pin It I am starting to think about Easter and how much I miss Luke being little boy and how he anxiously waited for the Easter Bunny.  We use to bake so many yummy treats!

At Christmas this past year, I had come across a recipe for homemade turtles.  They were so easy and very tasty so I thought I would try an experiment and make Bunny Bites!

Since this was an experiment, I wasn't sure how they would turn out but I stuck pretty close to the same process as the homemade turtles.  The ingredients were a tad different though. Today I used .... pretzels, Hershey's Hugs, and jelly beans!

Turn your oven on to 200 degrees F.  First place the pretzels on an ungreased cookie sheet then unwrap all the Hershey's Hugs and place on top of the pretzels. 

Place the tray in the preheated oven for approximately 3 - 4 minutes.  Watch them carefully as once they start to melt, they melt fast!

Remove from oven and place a jelly bean on top of the Hershey's Hugs .... push down slightly so the jelly bean sinks into the gooey goodness a little.  I was having a difficult time with mine as you can tell.  They didn't sink as much as I would have liked .... I have an idea for next time I make these .... I will let you know in a minute.

Can you see?  I think they should have sunk a little bit more.  Next time I have decided to use either Rolos or Hershey's Caramel Kisses.  I think the caramel in either one would melt a little easier which would help the jelly bean stay in place.

Oh well, a lesson learned the hard way but it was a tasty lesson!

Remember to give your loved ones a hug! 


  1. Saw your old barn picture on Sew Many Ways and so was drawn to your blog. I'm from Northern Minnesota (Crosby) as well but a transplant to the Pacific Northwest. I'm also a "thrift" shopper!

    1. Thank you soooo much and welcome! I've been to Crosby...cute little place. I hope to see you often!

  2. Another friend drawn to the barn.
    That old barn has a very special meaning in your life deb. It's your signature!

    Love the bunny bites- I'll try them with rolos and let you know how they turn out!

    1. That would be great if you tried them with Rolos! I don't know if my diet can handle another 'mistake'! LOL

  3. The barn drew me here too. My daughter lives in Minnesota too. These look good.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading all of them. Have a wonderful day.
