Chocolate Bunny Oatmeal -- Simple Easter fun your kids will LOVE!



There are many ways to celebrate Easter with food, and many of them point directly to the Resurrection, such as this Jelly Bean Gospel or these Resurrection Rolls or these Resurrection Cookies. Chocolate Bunny Oatmeal has nothing to do with anything. It’s just plain fun. That happy, oblivious little bunny has no idea what’s about to transpire.

That’s all there is to it!

Tips:

Eggs To help the bunny stand up and create a better effect, make thicker oatmeal by using less liquid than usual.

Eggs The oatmeal must be served hot.

Eggs Don’t add milk or coconut cream or whatever you add until the bunny has worked its little bunny magic.

Eggs Adjust the chocolaty goodness by using a larger or smaller rabbit.

Eggs The teeny tiny one-bite bunnies are really too small, so have chocolate chips on hand to add some yum.

Eggs Solid rabbits are not going to melt as quickly or completely as hollow bunnies, unless they are small. We used small solids (7/$1) and they melted fine.

Eggs Make this after Easter when the bunnies are being unloaded cheap.

Eggs Don’t serve this on a morning when your kids will be expected to sit still and quiet for an hour. Ahem.

Three-Pretty-Gifts This works great for a no-life-lesson breakfast around Christmas, too. Stick a Santa in it.
