Easter Bunny Dinner Rolls

Easter Bunny Dinner Rolls:

I use Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls.

I know the kids will love these!

No need for a recipe.
Thaw the rolls, snip the ears with scissors, shape them a bit with your fingers and poke the eyes with a skewer. Let the dough rise.
Bake according to the package directions and watch the smiles appear on everyone's faces!

I'm adding to this post a year later (2014). This year I'll attempt to make the ears more pronounced. You just have to practice and they will be even cuter! These were the first one's I had ever done. The kids love them.

We just made them again (2014) Easter. Here's an update to make them better. There's a recipe available to make the dough from scratch and in the video the ears and eyes are cut before the rolls rise. So, I learned that it would be better to thaw the frozen rolls and then cut and shape the ears and poke the eyes with a chop stick, then bake them according to package directions. So, next year...... they will be even better!

We made them for Easter last year and will do them again this year.
Peace in the Kitchen!

Here's a recipe to make the rolls from scratch:
2 1/2 C flour
2 TBS sugar
1 package (1/4 oz.) dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 C (8oz.) sour cream
1/4 C water
2 TBS butter
1 egg

In a saucepan:
sour cream
Heat on low and combine well, do not cook
Cool until warm to the touch
Transfer to a stand mixer with a dough hook.
Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Transfer to a bowl and cover with a Tea Towel, allow to rise.
Cut dough into 16 parts.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Roll each portion into an egg shaped ball.
Cut the ears with scissors and shape with your fingers to form ears that are rounded at the top.
Poke the eyes with a bamboo chop stick, deep enough to make a good indentation.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
The ears will be golden brown.

Hopefully, they end up like these!
It takes practice to make them as cute as these!
