Of course, everyone looks forward to the annual egg hunt on Easter. (Kids get to find a bunch of goodies and adults get to admire their hard work. It's a win-win!) But this year, we found another holiday activity to add to your to-do list. The build-it-yourself chocolate bunny hutch kit is the latest cookie house from Wilton. (In October, we were crushing a few of their Halloween-themed houses.) The newest version comes with everything you need to make an edible creation for April 12. Each box includes six pre-baked chocolate cookie panels, two packets of candy, four icing colors, (two in tubes and two that are ready-to-mix), and an adorable sugar bunny bum. (The bright frosting colors are on-trend with the palette we used in our citrus sugar cookie egg recipe.) The kit also comes with a stand for display as well as decorating bags, decorating tips, and an instruction sheet to help you put everything together.

If you're wondering where you can pick up one of these kits, you have a few options. Michaels is offering them on sale for $10.49 each. (The site says they're usually $14.99.) However, they're only available in-store, so you'll have to check out your nearest location to get one. However, Target is selling them for $13.59 per box, with the option to ship or pick it up in-store.
Once completed, the rabbit abode is 5.25 inches wide and 5.25 inches high, which makes it an ideal size for a holiday centerpiece. You could place it in your kids' Easter baskets, and have them work on it while you're preparing Easter brunch. For inspiration, Wilton has a tutorial on how to upgrade your bunny hutch with a few extra touches. Or, you can always give your children the supplies and let them create their own masterpiece.
