If the sugary coating on Peeps is too much for you, the Bunnymallows made by Kraft may be the perfect solution. Smaller and more colorful than their large Jet-Puffed cousins, the Bunnymallows are seasonally shaped into miniature bunnies. They seemed to be lighter and less dense than regular Jet Puffs, but it is possible that, because they are a seasonal item, the package was simply much fresher than the bags of marshmallows I usually encounter in stores. Whatever the reason for their wonderfully light texture, they were delicious.
When I got bored of munching on the 'mallows alone, I flipped over the package to read the helpful list of "fun uses." Apparently, the bunnies can be:
- Tossed with raisins and popcorn for a Spring party mix
- Added to hot cocoa
- Sprinkled over pudding or ice cream
- Used to decorate cupcakes
I took the most obvious route and toasted a couple. I've never had a better tasting bunny.
