 I am seriously addicted to my jar of candy googly eyes.

I know!  It’s the oddest thing to be in love with.  But those eyes just crack me up!!!  I can’t stop thinking of cute ways to use them for each holiday.  That $5 jar of candy eyes was the best purchase I have ever made.

I bought a package of bunny Peeps and some dark chocolate melts to make these fun chocolate covered bunnies.  Dark chocolate is a favorite around here, but feel free to use milk chocolate if you prefer that more.

Pink sprinkled ears, pink candy Pearl noses, and chocolate whiskers just add to the eyes, and make them extra adorable.  Of course, anything on a stick is 10 times cuter automatically, right?

They are almost too cute to eat.  Almost!

My kids couldn’t wait to get their hands on these little bunnies and start munching on their ears.  Why is it that everyone always starts with the bunny ears?

These little bunnies in a jar of bright colored Sixlets make the prettiest (and tastiest) centerpiece.   I know I will be making quite a few more later this month to take to Easter dinner for our nieces and nephews.

Dipping these bunnies is really quite easy.  Melt your chocolates with a little bit of shortening.  The shortening thins the chocolate just a little, so it dips and covers better.

Gently push a straw into the bunny bottom and then spoon chocolate over the entire bunny.  Be very careful that your chocolate is warm enough for dipping, but not hot enough to melt the bunnies.   Lay them on a tray with wax paper to dry.

Use a toothpick to add chocolate on the bunny face for the eyes and nose.  The little candy pearls are the perfect size for a bunny nose.

You can also use half a mini marshmallow for a tail if you want to change up the bunnies a little bit.

Gently spread a layer of chocolate with your toothpick over the ears.  Quickly sprinkle on the pink colored sugar!!!  Dip the toothpick in the chocolate again and draw on little whiskers for each bunny face.

These are so easy to make.  They are the perfect holiday craft if you want to have your kids help you make them.

Be prepared for these to disappear as soon as you put them in a jar.  I suggest making extras.

    Holy Cuteness! I bought those little eyeballs too. I don’t know why, but I had to have them! I am also a Peeps junkie! I can’t resist chocolate covered peeps, although I typically make my own marshmallow, but if I want to keep it simple, store bought Peeps are the way to go! Thanks
