Easter Bunny Racers - An adorable Easter and Springtime Treat!

Easter Bunny Racers are an adorable idea for kids during the Springtime and Easter season. They are easy to assemble and the kids can help too! Plus you can use a many different candy objects to achieve the desired "tricked-out" car.

Easter Bunny Racers

  • 24 Swiss cake rolls 
  • 1 (16 ounce) container chocolate frosting (or vanilla) 
  • 24 Marshmallow Rabbit PEEPS 
  • 1 Bag ring-shaped gummy candies (cut in half) 
  • 24 Lifesavers candies (hard or gummy candies) 
  • 48 M&M's plain chocolate candy 96 Spree candies

  1. Unwrap Swiss cake rolls and put on flat surface to work on.  
  2. Place contents of frosting container in quart-sized Ziploc bag; press all air out, seal and snip corner off end. 
  3. Cut a shallow V shape in bottom of Peeps so they sit flat on cake rolls.  
  4. Add small amount of frosting to bottom of Peeps and stick on almost to the back of cake rolls.  
  5. Take halved ring-shaped gummy slices and add small dabs of frosting to cut end and stick down behind Peep as the "back of the seat".  
  6. Next, add small dab of frosting to Lifesavers and stick down in front of Peep on a slight angle for steering wheel. 
  7. Take 2 matching M&M's and adhere to front of cake roll as the headlights.  
  8. Take 4 matching Spree candies (or equivalent) and use frosting to adhere them two to each long side of cake roll as the tires.  
  9. Repeat with all cake rolls.
