Funfetti Easter Treats

This week is technically our "spring break" so I have had even more time to bake this week. I've pretty much made a new treat every single day. I knew I wanted to make a fun new (and easy) dessert for Easter this year, even if it is just going to be me and Zach. This bunny bottom is just way too cute! It was so easy to make AND it is delicious! Here is what you need:

1 cup funfetti cake mix
16 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sprinkles
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
1 bag coconut flakes
Pink M&M's (only need 8)
Nila wafers/graham crackers/pretzels (or anything else you want to dip in)

Mix all the ingredient except the M&M's and coconut flakes. Form one large ball, two smaller balls (for the feet), and one very small ball (for the tail). Roll each ball in the coconut flakes. You can flatten and shape the feet a little to make them look more like feet if you want. Put the large ball on a plate then place the tail ball on top and the feet on the sides. Carefully press the M&M's into the feet (4 on each foot). Refrigerate if you are not serving it right away. Arrange the graham crackers, Nila wafers, or pretzels on the plate around the bunny cheeseball and serve!

Since you don't use all the funfetti mix in the bunny bottom, I used the rest to make these DELICIOUS funfetti cookies. I will give the recipe I used for the rest of the box and then the recipe if you are using a full box. To make the smaller batch you need:

The rest of the funfetti cake mix (2 cups are left over)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
Spring M&M's
2 Tbsp. sprinkles

If you're making a whole box you need:

1 box Funfetti cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
Spring M&M's
3 Tbsp. sprinkles

Mix then roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. Grease the bottom of a glass and press the cookies down to flatten them out a bit. Add 3-4 M&M's to the top before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
