  • 1 <b>For Spring Chicks:</b> Use photo as a guide. Unroll fruit flavored snack; remove paper. Cut Red/Yellow fruit flavored snack in half, separating the red and yellow. Place marshmallow on yellow half of fruit flavored strip, and wrap around so marshmallow is covered, leaving a little extra to gather at top of marshmallow. Press open ends of fruit flavored snack together to cover marshmallow. Gather excess fruit flavored strip at top; pinch together. Using small kitchen scissors, cut strips to make feathers at top. Cut small diamond shape from red fruit flavored strip, and attach to front to make a beak. Attach pretzel twist for feet and 2 candy eyeballs using small amount of white frosting. Repeat to make another chick.

Cut remaining fruit flavored snack into two 2-inch wide strips. Place marshmallow on one 2-inch strip, and wrap around, pressing open ends of fruit flavored snack together to cover marshmallow. Cut bunny ear-shaped pieces from remaining fruit flavored snack, doubling layers for extra strength. Secure bunny ears to top of bunny head using small amount of frosting, forming them to stand upright. Wrap pretzel twist for feet in fruit flavored snack. Attach 2 candy eyeballs and pretzel twist for feet using small amount of frosting. Using food-safe pen, draw bunny nose and whiskers on face. Repeat to make another bunny.
