Taste of Home editor-in-chief Catherine Cassidy stopped by the "Good Morning America" studios to share some of her favorite bunny recipes. This one is quick and easy to make, and it's perfect for Easter!

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (12.4 ounces) refrigerated cinnamon roll dough
  • 12 M&M's miniature baking bits
  • 4 pink jelly beans
  • 24 pieces black shoestring licorice (1 inch)
  • 1 drop red food coloring
  • Brown decorating gel or color of your choice
  • Cooking Directions

    Separate dough into eight rolls. Place four rolls on a greased baking sheet. Using a 2-in. biscuit cutter, cut 3/4 in. into both sides of remaining rolls to form ears and bow ties. Place ears at the top and a bow tie below each cinnamon roll; pinch to attach. Slightly flatten rolls.

    Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside 1-1/2 teaspoons icing. Spread remaining icing over bunnies.

    Place a baking bit in the center of each bow tie; add remaining baking bits for eyes. Place a jelly bean in each center for nose; attach licorice pieces for whiskers.

    Tint reserved icing pink with red food coloring; pipe mouths and outline ears. Pipe edges of bow ties with decorating
