  • Using a 6cm bunny shaped cookie cutter, carefully cut out bunny shapes. Transfer bunny shapes to a tray or large plate, and leave to set in the fridge for 1 hour.

Icing

  • Sift icing sugar into a medium bowl. Add a few drops of pink food colouring. Add water one teaspoon at a time, mix until a smooth, thick icing is made.

Assembly

  • Put some icing on the liquorice whiskers and stick down onto the crackle.
  • Then put some icing on the smartie and glue it down to the whiskers.
  • Allow icing to set.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • You can use the left over crackle to make crackle popcorn, Place the left-over’s in a microwave safe bowl, heat on medium (50%) power for 1minute, pour onto a tray lined with baking paper. Leave it to set on the bench for 20 minutes or until firm to touch. Pinch off walnut sized pieces and shape into popcorn, once all the mix is used up put popcorn in the fridge to set around 1 hour.
  • Store crackle shapes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days
