Here Comes Peter Cottontail - Driving Down the Bunny Trail

Yes - I did say 'driving' down the bunny trail!  And it's not just Peter - it's Paula Cottontail too!
I made these with Twinkies, small round cookies and a white chocolate covered pretzel -  
and they just CRACK ME UP!! TOO CUTE, right??!!  
And off they go!  They'll be arriving at my niece's for Easter Dinner on Sunday along with 8 more of their relatives. 
(there are never 'only two' with bunnies right?!)
A tutorial for these came to me in an e-mail last week - which I watched then deleted and now I can't find it but there are lots of variations of them on Pinterest.    

First I bought the supplies - a box of Twinkies, a package of white chocolate covered pretzels, a box of Mini Nilla Wafers (any small round cookie will do), Bunny Little Peeps,  a tube of white cake icing and a knife to cut out the seat area of the Twinkie.
Here are  few photos of my process.
Fill the space with icing
Add the Bunny and pretzel to the seat area
Put icing on the cookies and push onto sides of twinkie.
And that's it!
These will look SO CUTE on the Easter Table on Sunday!
