“My mom's made these for Easter the past 15 years. These are great for breakfast or to give out as gifts (wrapped in cellophane). Ingredients can be put in bread machine. Rolling the dough into coils is a great way to get the kids involved. To freeze: wrap bunnies individually and freeze in Ziplock bags.”
