Chinese New Year Dessert Ideas!

Grab your rabbit cookie cutter and make some sugar cookies in honor of the Year of the Rabbit!

We used licorice for whiskers and chocolate chips for eyes.
While we were at it, we also made a few Valentine cookies too.

Chocolate covered fortune cookies were a big hit at preschool last year for Chinese New Year.

See this post for more pics and instructions for making these yummy treats.
Family Corner has instructions here to make these Good Fortune cupcakes.

Have a wonderful Monday.
I'm home with Emma who has a day off from school.
We'll be hitting several stores for some mother-daughter bonding.

Oh, what fun! We're home today, too. I think I may have to do some CNY crafting. I was going to do some yardwork...in preparation for the SW visit for our next adoptions.....
But, I'm going to craft with the girls instead....maybe. I will have to psych myself up for that. ;)

Great idea to use the bunny cookie cutter for CNY, I'll have to get around to doing that.
I saw you featured on Brag Monday!! I had a feeling I'd see you on there one of these days :)

As always, Josie looks adorable! Cookies are cute too! I made a new ginger cookie recipe yesterday, and it was delicious. Cookies are fun and easy treat.

I don't know what looks sweeter, that child or the cookies.
