Peanut Butter Bunny Crisp Cake

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 - 10oz packages of marshmallows
  • 2 cups Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 10 cups crisp rice cereal
  • Crisco(R) No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • Smucker's(R) Jelly Beans
  • Licorice, gum drops, or decorative candy

  • Glaze (optional)
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted powder sugar

Instructions

In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir until completely melted and remove from heat. Stir in Jif and mix well to incorporate.

Add rice crisp cereal and stir until well coated.

Press into two 9-inch pans, well coated with Crisco No-Stick Cooking Spray and allow to cool.

Cut ears and bow tie from one cake. This is done by cutting two football shaped ears from the top and bottom of one cake layer, leaving a bow tie-shaped piece in the middle. Position two ears at top of whole round cake and place bow tie under the face.

That's it! Now you can apply optional glaze, if desired. Decorate with Smucker's Jelly Beans, marshmallows, licorice, and gum drops or any of your favorite cake decorations.
