Expert Tips

No cottage cheese? A regular-size marshmallow that’s cut in half looks just like a bunny’s tail.

Create individual salad plates. Finely shred the lettuce and add miniature carrots to look like bunny munchin’s.

Look for the canned pear halves in light—instead of heavy—syrup. You’ll cut calories and sugar from the recipe.

Picking up raisins and sliced almonds from the bulk-foods section of your supermarket means you buy only what you need!
