Did you know that if you plant jelly beans in your yard, lollipops will grow in their place?

It’s true, just ask my kids.  It only works the week of Easter, though.

From jelly beans to lollipops- Careful, I found a slug creeping across my dining room table after they harvested their "crops."

Easter is kind of a big deal around here.  Since we do a brunch over at my sister-in-law’s house on Easter morning, and I saw these adorable bunny pancakes on Pinterest, I just had to make them today, during the week leading up to the big day.

These look impressive, but they were super easy.  All you need is two condiment squeeze bottles, (you can get these at Walmart, Target, or any craft or cooking store) some jelly beans, some food coloring, and some pancake batter.

If you really want to go nuts, you can make these adorable Easter Bunny sandwiches too.  I don’t have a tutorial for this one, but it’s easy enough to figure out.

My kids thought they were amazing.  All you need are a couple of round cookie cutters and a banana.

Anyway, enjoy your pancakes (tutorial and photos below) and enjoy your kids asking you to make every. single. meal. into a bunny shape ever after.  Happy Easter!

Tutorial from I Heart Naptime

Directions:

1. First, make your pancake mix.  Here is my recipe for homemade pancakes.  It is SUPER easy.  Today, I used Krusteaz.  I felt like I was being Martha Stewart enough for one day.

2. Remove about 1/3 of the batter, and using a funnel (easiest) or a dry measuring cup (a little messier, but works) pour it into one of your squeeze bottles.  Color the remaining batter pink (or blue, or green, or whatever color you want your bunnies to be) and pour it into the other squeeze bottle.

3. Heat your griddle to it’s lowest setting.  Mine is 225° and lightly butter it.  Keep in mind that the smaller you make these pancakes, the easier they will be for you to flip without the ears falling off. (I learned this the hard way after two failed pancakes and some profanity – I was not feeling very Martha at that moment.)

4. Do this:

6. Flip them over

7. Spread them with butter and garnish with powdered sugar,  jelly beans (I cut them in half for the eyes, and did a whole one for the nose.) and serve with syrup.
