I was provided Palmer Easter Bunny Varieties and Chocolates to facilitate this post, opinions expressed are that of my own.
Palmer Chocolate Bunnies are truly an Easter tradition, and I can even remember getting them in my basket when I was a little girl.
This is a tradition that I have continued with my own children, and with Easter arriving in a little less than a month, these special bunnies have been hitting or hopping into stores everywhere.
Thanks to Palmer, I got an opportunity to check out and review this year’s assortment of Easter Chocolates here on Frugal and Fun Mom.
The package I received had few familiar chocolate bunnies like the Bunny Crisps and the Lil’ Crispy, but it also had some neat additions that I have not seen before.
2 of the items that really stuck out to me were the large Soccer Bunnies and Fun’n Games Edible Maze.
There were also Baby Binks, small peanut butter cups, and adorable chocolate bunny ears.
Not only do the peanut butter cups taste great and look pretty for baskets, but they also made a colorful addition around my table centerpiece.
I can’t wait to give all these items to my kids this year, and I know they will be excited to see these chocolates in their baskets.
Since my kids don’t usually get to enjoy their chocolate bunnies until Easter, I decided to do things a little differently and start a new tradition of a Bunny Trail Cake.
After some brainstorming and input from my kids, this is how we did it.
If you would like to recreate the Bunny Trail Cake, this is what you will need.
2 Palmer Baby Binks Bunnies
White Cake Box Mix
Vanilla Wafer Cookies
Green Food Coloring
Candy Cake Decorations (Flowers or Spring Time Themes)
How we assembled it:
In advance I made a white 8×12.25 Boxed White Cake, and let it cool completely. I then transferred this to a decorative platter and my son iced it.
Next, I placed the bunnies and vanilla wafers on the cake for a bunny trail.
At this point I created the grass (AKA green coconut) by combining 4 drops of green food coloring in with one packed cup of sweetened coconut.
I gave this to my daughter to let her spread it on the open white parts of the cake.
After this, we added our candy cake decorations in the grass, and I finished the cake by adding a small amount of white icing to the back of one of the bunnies for a “Cotton Tail”.
