Bunny race cars

INGREDIENTS:

Bunny Peeps

Tiny Twists pretzels

Twinkies (or other similar cream-filled cakes)

Mini Oreos

Mini marshmallows (for headlights)

Decorating Icing (cupcake icing), to use as glue

Other optional items: large marshmallows (alternate wheels), assorted candies, sprinkles, etc.

DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut a small rectangle about a third of the way from Twinkie end. This will be the "seat" for the Peeps racer, so you'll want the cut-out to be large enough to fit the Peeps into. Put a little decorating icing in the cut-out to secure the Peeps in place.

2. About 1/2-inch in front of the seat cut-out, using a sharp knife, cut a little slit for placement of the mini pretzel steering wheel. You'll want to press the pretzel about halfway into the slit, again, securing with a little decorating icing.

3. Next, you'll want to determine placement of the tires. Secure mini Oreo tires by spreading with a little decorating icing "glue."

4. Cut mini marshmallows in half. Spread a little decorating icing on cut side of marshmallow and secure to front of Twinkie (for headlights).

5. Add whatever other "personal" touches you would like to make these your "own" creations!
